Two players suspended for Brentford clash

Both Manchester United and Brentford are missing a player due to suspension for Saturday's Premier League clash in south-west London.

Fans will have to wait a little longer to see Amad in action again, after his memorable contribution to the 4-3 triumph over Liverpool in the Emirates FA Cup quarter-final.

The Ivory Coast international reacted to his late winner by removing his shirt in celebration and was shown a second yellow card by referee John Brooks, after harshly being booked five minutes earlier.

Sergio Reguilon made 12 appearances for United, when on loan from Spurs.

Amad's one-game ban comes into effect in the next domestic game, rather than remaining in the same competition, so he should be available to face Coventry City in the semi-final at Wembley next month.

He scored in the away fixture against the Sky Blues last term, when on loan at Sunderland in the Championship.

Meanwhile, Brentford boss Thomas Frank also has a player absent through suspension.

Sergio Reguilon was red-carded after eight minutes of the 2-1 defeat to Burnley last time out. The defender is on loan with the Bees from Tottenham, after a similar spell at United earlier in the campaign.

The full-back must sit out one match and, unfortunately for him, it is a game he would not want to have missed.
