Ronaldo is back
So the Portugal international does start for United today, with the importance of a result today overshadowing any off-field antics.
As for Brentford, their new man Mikkel Damsgaard will have to wait for his first minutes for them, as he starts from the bench.

Brentford gave Christian Eriksen his return to professional football midway through last season, when he signed a short-term contract to feature for them.
He looked close to his best straight away, and Manchester United saw enough to make him one of their signings of the summer.
Now, he returns to London and could start against his former side.
Result essential for Red Devils
With Liverpool awaiting them next week, anything other than a win could see serious questions approaching Erik ten Hag very soon.
With them unlikely to beat Jurgen Klopp’s men, starting the season without a win in three is simply unacceptable for a club with the ambitions of United.
A lot riding on today…
United fans will have taken no joy from the games in the Premier League so far to day, with local rivals Manchester City already three to the good against Bournemouth.
Arsenal, who have top four ambitions of their own were two up against Leicester, but a William Saliba own goal has pulled the Foxes back into things there.

Debut for Damsgaard?
The latest addition to the West London side is Mikkel Damsgaard, who joined earlier this week from Serie A side Sampdoria.
Thomas Frank has hinted that if he features today, it is likely to be from the bench.
A start for Ronaldo?
The five-time Balon d’Or winner was only on the bench last week, with him forced to watch from the side as United fell two behind in the first half at Old Trafford.
With Anthony Martial still out with injury, today could be the day the great man makes his first start for the new manager.
Hello, and welcome to The Sun’s coverage of Brentford vs Manchester United!
Erik ten Hag’s men will be desperate to kickstart their season following last week’s shambolic defeat to Brighton.
However, the Bees will be inspired by their comeback in the second half against Leicester City last weekend, and will be calling on their brilliant home support to help them today.
