Brentford striker Ivan Toney ended his scoring drought in the Premier League during the game against Manchester United at home, but his goal was not enough to give his team the win. His strike turned out to be a consolation as his Brentford side lost 3-1 to the Red Devils.

Both Brentford and Manchester United came into the game on the back of respective poor league forms. London team Brentford had lost their last two games in the competition, while the Red Devils were not much better with one draw and one defeat from their last two games.

Manchester United didn’t have the best of first halves and they were not made to pay by their hosts. They got their acts together in the second half as they delivered a strong performance to get their season going in the chase to finish in the top four places. The Red Devils produced an impressive second half display to take the three points at stake at the expense of the Bees as they closed the gap on the leading pack in the race for Champions League football next season.

Swedish attacker Anthony Elanga was given a chance to impress in the starting XI at Manchester United and he was able to take the chance handed to him by interim boss Ralf Rangnickand he took it with both hands. Elanga was the man who broke the deadlock on 55 minutes before the visitors added two goals from the English duo of Mason Greenwood and Marcus Rashford. Rashford had come on to replace Greenwood and he added a third Manchester United goal on 77 minutes. Greenwood had scored for the Red Devils fifteen (15) minutes earlier. Brentford striker Ivan Toney found the back of the net with the only goal for his team on 85 minutes to end a run of six league games without a goal.
