Man Utd nick a point at Brentford after stoppage-time drama

Manchester United were denied an undeserved victory at Brentford as Kristoffer Ajer’s 99th-minute equaliser salvaged a 1-1 draw in a thrilling finale.

Mason Mount thought he had won it for United in stoppage-time with his first goal for the club in the 96th minute against the run of play but Brentford finally scored three minutes later with their 31st shot of the game through Ajer. United were woeful until that late stage.

Brentford will wonder how they did not take any of their myriad of chances before United took the lead. They struck the frame of the goal four times, while Andre Onana produced a fine double save to deny Yehor Yarmoliuk and Keane Lewis-Potter. That was just the tip of the iceberg.

Wins for Aston Villa and Tottenham mean United are eight points adrift of fifth after being played off the park by a side just five points above the relegation zone and without a win in their last seven. Brentford somehow, after 31 shots, did not win.
