Brentford 1 - 1 Manchester United (Mar-30-2024) Premier League Highlights

Kristoffer Ajer scored in the ninth minute of injury time as Brentford snatched a dramatic draw against Manchester United in a thrilling finish at the Gtech Community Stadium.

The equaliser came three minutes after Mason Mount thought he had netted the winner for the visitors with his first United goal.

But they could not hold on for victory and a draw damages the Red Devils' hopes of qualifying for next season's Champions League.

Ivan Toney, who scored his first England goal in the 2-2 draw with Belgium on Tuesday, was involved in the build-up to the equaliser, with his pull-back converted by Ajer as the Bees secured a deserved point after hitting the woodwork four times.

Toney shot against the inside of the post when sent through on goal before Mathias Jorgensen's free header clipped the top of the crossbar before the break.

Brentford continued to dominate and Yoane Wissa became the third Bees player to hit the goal frame, with his powerful volley from inside the penalty area bouncing off the upright just before the hour mark.

Bryan Mbeumo also produced a fierce second-half attempt that rebounded off the crossbar as Brentford pushed for a much-needed victory in their fight to stay in the top flight.

Toney thought he had broken the deadlock, volleying into the net from Mbeumo's cross in the 72nd minute, only for the effort to be disallowed for offside.

Brentford goalkeeper Mark Flekken had earlier made an excellent one-handed save to deny Rasmus Hojlund but was beaten by substitute Mount before Ajer's late heroics.
