Premier League 2023-24: Manchester United vs Brentford - Match Report

Scott McTominay scored an incredible stoppage-time brace as Manchester United came from behind to beat Brentford 2-1 in the Premier League at Old Trafford.

Brentford took the lead in the first half when Casemiro gave the ball away and Victor Lindelof failed to clear the ball. Yoane Wissa drove into the box and Andre Onana couldn't save Mathias Jensen's shot and it ended up in the back of the net.

Brentford came agonisingly close to a first win at Old Trafford since 1937, but substitute McTominay had other ideas and levelled in the 93rd minute after reacting first to a rebound, controlling well, and drilling home.

Then in the seventh minute of additional time, Harry Maguire flicked on a free-kick to McTominay, who drilled a header beyond the goalkeeper and sent Old Trafford wild. The win ends a run of back-to-back United defeats at home and lifts them to ninth in the table on 12 points. Brentford stay on seven points and are 14th.

"You are relieved and in that moment, once again a game that was turning the wrong way for us, we could find the turning point. It showed the character in this team, the resilience. It shows we have a plan to keep going, and you have to make your own luck," said Ten Hag.

"He (McTominay) tells you something about the dressing room. That a player is coming on for five minutes and brings that spirit on the pitch. He fights for the badge. You have to earn that badge, but definitely Scott McTominay is United," he added.
