Man United 3-0 Brentford: Rangnick’s last home match ends in comfortable win

Manchester United won 3-0 at Brentford in the English Premier League match held at Old Trafford on Monday evening.

The Reds haven’t lost a win in their last three matches, but they have blasted into life against the Bees, who have been in four straight games unbeaten.

Ralph Rangnick’s players got off to a perfect start when Anthony Ilanga showed great vision and sent a pass to Bruno Fernandes, who showed composure inside the penalty area to bury the ball from close range into the net.

United then controlled the proceedings from that point on, and the bees got stuck deeply in his half.

The hosts felt that they should have received a penalty in the middle of the first half when Cristiano Ronaldo fell inside the penalty area, but the referee did not see the play.

Then Juan Mata missed a great opportunity right after the half-hour mark, cutting his shot off the right post.

One minute before the break, Ronaldo thought he had doubled United’s lead with a superb goal, but his effort was called off for offside.

United started the second half superbly and managed to create two half-time chances in the first 15 minutes.

They then had a chance to double their lead an hour later when Ronaldo fell inside the penalty area, which resulted in a penalty kick.

The Portuguese easily beat the goalkeeper with a penalty, giving his team the much-needed support.

Then Raphael Varane made the score 3-0 with his first goal in a Manchester United shirt in the 72nd minute after a corner ball fell into his hand.

There were no clear chances in the remaining 20 minutes or so as United secured an easy win that cemented their slim hopes of appearing in the Champions League next season.
