Which Red was Man of the Match at Brentford?

Sunday 31 March 2024 12:00

Manchester United drew 1-1 with Brentford following a dramatic finale in west London on Saturday.

Mason Mount's first-ever Reds goal was cancelled out by an even later equaliser from Bees defender Kristoffer Ajer as the points were shared at the Gtech Community Stadium.

Following the game we ran a fan poll for our supporters to pick their standout performer from Erik ten Hag's side.

Running all through the night and into Sunday, we can now reveal our Man of the Match, as chosen by you...

Who was United's Man of the Match in the draw with Brentford?

Attracting a huge 41 per cent of the polling, Andre Onana was our fans' pick for Man of the Match.

The Cameroonian made a string of important saves to deny the Bees, most notably a superb double-stop to thwart Keane Lewis-Potter twice in quick succession.

While he was disappointed at the result, Andre will no doubt have been pleased with his individual performance in west London.

Second in the vote was Mount who must have thought he had clinched victory for the Reds in the 96th minute when he kept his cool in the Brentford box and slotted the ball into the far corner with his left foot, opening his account for United.

Mason displayed some smart flicks after being introduced in the 80th minute and his energy was apparent, as he continues to make his return from long-term injury.

Mount got 25 per cent of the voting in our fan poll, the only Red other than Onana to attract double figures.

Kobbie Mainoo was third in the poll, with nine per cent, after another mature display in the middle of the park.

Mainoo played 80 minutes against the Bees before being replaced by Casemiro, who was making his return from injury.

The result was not the one United would have wanted, but Onana's quality shone through to ensure the Reds didn't go away from west London empty-handed.
