In a thrilling conclusion to an intense match, Mason Mount made a stunning impact off the bench, scoring his debut goal for Manchester United in the fifth minute of stoppage time. However, Brentford’s Kristoffer Ajer dashed United’s hopes by equalizing in the eighth minute.

With this result, Brentford edges a point closer to safety, while United’s prospects of qualifying for the UEFA Champions League appear grim.

United initially held a slight advantage, but they failed to pose a significant threat. Brentford then dominated proceedings and squandered numerous opportunities, notably when Ivan Toney eluded Victor Lindelof and struck a low shot against the inside of the post.

Despite Erik ten Hag’s halftime instructions, Manchester United failed to turn the tide as Brentford maintained their dominance. Brentford struck the woodwork twice more and missed several other opportunities.

United appeared to capitalize on Brentford’s missed chances when Mason Mount, set up by Casemiro, expertly found the corner of the net. However, Ivan Toney produced a moment of brilliance, skillfully controlling the ball before maneuvering around the United defense to assist Ajer for a well-deserved equalizer.
