WATCH: Pereira scores wondergoal for Man Utd in entertaining Brentford draw

Old Trafford was jumping once again as Manchester United played out an entertaining 2-2 draw with Brentford on Wednesday.

30,000 fans packed into the famous stadium to watch United deliver two incredible goals against the newly promoted Bees.

Teenager Anthony Elanga put United ahead with a wonderful volley after just 12 minutes.

The visitors found themselves level shortly after when Shandon Baptiste beat Tom Heaton with a terrific strike from the edge of the box.

Andreas Pereira topped the lot when he volleyed into the top right corner to stun the adoring home crowd.

Substitute Bryan Mbeumo then curled home an excellent leveller 12 minutes from time.

Donny van de Beek made his United return in the second-half, while youngsters Facundo Pellistri, Hannibal Mejbri and Shola Shoretire were also given late cameos.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side will play Preston North End on Saturday and Everton the following weekend before their Premier League opener against Leeds United on August 13.
