With two goals in stoppage time from super sub Scott McTominay, Manchester United pulled off an amazing comeback to defeat Brentford 2-1.

Erik ten Hag substituted the midfielder in the 87th minute, as the hosts were on the verge of suffering their third consecutive Premier League home loss and trailing 1-0. However, McTominay paid back the confidence by scoring in the third and seventh minutes of added time.

It was the longest Man Utd had gone down in a Premier League game before battling back to win, trailing after 92 minutes and 46 seconds.

Man United had a tough time getting past a tenacious Brentford team for the majority of the game, and after Mathias Jensen’s goal, they were down for the fourth straight home Premier League game.

Casemiro lost the ball before diving in for an unsuccessful tackle, which set off a string of mistakes by United. Victor Lindelof couldn’t stop a Brentford cross that was attempted after that. It broke to Yoane Wissa, who passed to Jensen, whose low strike went under Andre Onana’s right hand.

Thomas Strakosha, making his Premier League debut, turned away a long-range shot from Bruno Fernandes.

However, Brentford narrowly missed a second goal through Neal Maupay and Christian Norgaard. Onana deflected Norgaard’s header from a corner after tipping over Maupay’s long-range effort.

After having an equalizing own goal ruled out for offside by VAR in the 89th minute, Man Utd’s hopes seemed to be lost, but McTominay gave them one last chance.

In order to control the ball and find the bottom corner to tie the score for United, the replacement displayed excellent composure. And four minutes later, he headed in Harry Maguire’s flick-on to set off wild scenes at Old Trafford.

Ten Hag United gains a much-needed victory that raises them to ninth place, while Brentford stays in 14th place and extends their winless streak to six games.
