Erik ten Hag must give Manchester United player his first Premier League start in five months

If any player was going to speak in the mixed zone after Manchester United's draw with Brentford at the weekend, it was going to be the goalscorer, Mason Mount.

It transpired not even Mount was willing to speak, although he did do an interview with MUTV. "If you look at the game overall it wasn't to our standard," he said. "We know that. When you score at the death you think you can maybe hang on. But maybe we didn't deserve it.

"Brentford make it difficult. It is never easy coming here. They make it tough and get around you. Maybe we didn't get it going from the beginning. We know we can improve and we need to because we need to win games. We will improve, we will work hard. We need to step up."

The points were shared, but the goal must be the turning point regardless and starting Mount against his former club Chelsea on Thursday seems like a no-brainer.
