Saturday 5.30pm: Brentford v Manchester United
TV: Sky Sports Main Event, Sky Sports Premier League

Erik ten Haag’s reign at Old Trafford got off to a shaky start on the opening weekend with his side losing 2-1 against a resolute Brighton side. Brentford’s weekend was far better, snatching a late 2-2 draw against Leicester, thanks to a wondergoal by Joshua DaSilva. This weekend Manchester United make the trip to London with one key objective: all three points. Here, ValueBetSpotter assess some the smart punts that all add up to a bit of value this weekend.

Harry Maguire To Have 1 Or More Shots

Harry Maguire to Have 1 or More Shots is one bet that we always look out for when Manchester United are playing, particularly against sides that concede high numbers of corners and attacking free kicks. Maguire has had six shots in his last seven games, including one against Brighton last weekend.

Brentford conceded five corners, three free kicks in the final third and 14 shots last week against Leicester. Expect Maguire to get his head on at least one cross, with the quality delivery from Christian Eriksen being one high point from last weekend’s loss to Brighton.

Over 4.5 Man United Corners

That brings us on perfectly to Manchester United to have Over 4.5 Corners. Brentford gave away five corners on the opening day against Leicester and Manchester United managed six against Brighton.

Prior to that, Brentford have conceded six or more corners in five of their last seven Premier League games, including a whopping 12 against Chelsea. Manchester United have had 18 corners in their last three league games, expect the trend to continue here.

Over 2.5 Cards

Stuart Attwell’s at the whistle this weekend for his first Premier League appointment of the season. He has refereed a Europa Conference League Qualifier in recent weeks however, showing a whopping TEN yellow cards.

On top of this, he’s shown at least three cards in 11 of his last 15 games. He showed five cards the last time he was in charge of a Man United fixture (vs Spurs) and four cards in his last Red Devils fixture before that (vs Southampton) so we’ve a good chance of seeing Over 2.5 Cards.

Under 11.5 Corners

Quite a simple one to round off the Bet Builder. Brentford matches have had Over 11.5 Corners just once in their last eight games. Manchester United’s record is even better, Over 11.5 Corners happening just once in their last ten Premier League games. When these two sides met in May 2022, the game also ended with less than 12 corners – a great omen going into this weekend’s tie as we sign off with Under 11.5 Corners.
