Crazy Comeback Manchester United Vs Brentford 2-1 All Goals & Highlights

Manchester United have some hope. The question is how much? A 2-1 aggregate win over Brentford after 90 minutes, leading 1-0, overshadowed an otherwise disappointing performance but, United hope, will give them the springboard to restart the season prize.

Scott McTominay was the hero, scoring twice from the bench in the 93rd and 97th minutes to secure a most unlikely victory. Andre Onana appeared to lack confidence and made many errors, Casemiro was sent off in the first half and Marcus Rashford had another difficult afternoon.

But after two defeats at home, Erik ten Hag’s side won again and went into the international break, thus avoiding crisis.

How big is the result or is it just paper over a crack? Laurie Whitwell: Old Trafford hasn’t seen a celebration like this for a long time.

McTominay’s double in injury time turned disaster into ecstasy, the stadium a sea of ​​spinning limbs backed by astonishing noise.

It was reminiscent of Steve Bruce’s late double 30 years ago, turning defeat into sweet victory for Sir Alex Ferguson’s side.The difference was that at the time United were on their way to winning the title. The victory took United ninth in the table.

The idea of ​​a championship is still very far away. Indeed, before McTominay scored, Ten Hag’s tenure was already in deep crisis. Brentford supporters taunted him with “morning sack” chants as United suffered a third consecutive home defeat.The last time this happened was in 1979. United avoided this damning statistic, but the alarming aspect was that for much of the match, United seemed to have no idea .

Furthermore, Brentford’s goal was probably the worst goal United have conceded, a series of errors by Ten Hag’s players. Ten Hag got rid of Casemiro and Rashford, two of their best players last season, and a defeat could end the manager’s hopes of survival.

These problems still persist.But the manner of that comeback victory, the energy that reigned at Old Trafford after the final whistle, could have been the catalyst for a deeper turning point. Who gets the credit? Dan Sheldon:

Ten Hag will thank McTominay for turning this match around. As the game entered its final stages, Brentford went deeper and deeper, while United began to press without getting the final product.
