United would proceed to be rocked by a six-minute flurry of QPR goals, with Lyndon Dykes netting twice either side of Moses Odubajo’s finish, and Solskjaer’s side could only make the net ripple once more through Anthony Elanga as QPR ran out 4-2 winners.Pre-season results are never a good indication of how a team’s season may play out – and United did spoil Wayne Rooney’s reunion party with a 2-1 win over Derby County earlier this month – but conceding four to QPR would not have done the confidence of Solskjaer’s veterans and youngsters any favours.
However, the biggest news out of the United camp recently was undoubtedly the confirmed arrival of Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund, while progress is also believed to have been made in their efforts to sign Raphael Varane from Real Madrid. Preston North End and Everton also lie in wait for Man United before their Premier League campaign begins against old foes Leeds United, but with fans set to make a long-awaited return to Old Trafford this week, the visit of Brentford is not to be taken lightly.
Brentford head to Old Trafford for a pre-season friendly next week before we embark on our historic Premier League campaign in less than a month’s time. This is our last midweek friendly before the start of the season. After a trip to Old Trafford we play two home matches. The first is against West Ham United on Saturday 31 July before Valencia Club de Fútbol come to West London on Saturday 7 August
