Man Utd 2 – 2 Brentford

Andreas Pereira scored a stunning volley but it was not enough to give Manchester victory as they were held 2-2 by Brentford.

Youngster Anthony Elanga gave United a deserved lead (12) with a brilliant sweeping volley from 12 yards, but Shandon Baptiste equalized with an even better hit from 25 yards (20) in front of 30,000 at Old Trafford.

But the best was yet to come as Pereira, who was on loan at Lazio last season, struck a quite sublime 30-yard volley in off the underside of the crossbar to put the hosts ahead (50), before Bryan Mbeumo’s cute finish secured a draw for the Bees (78).

Manchester United now face Preston at Deepdale in a friendly at 2pm on Saturday, while Brentford host West Ham on Saturday at 3pm.
