Manchester United vs Watford Preview

Following the third beating of Chelsea for the season, Manchester United host second-from-bottom Watford on Sunday.


There is an upbeat mood around United with their victory over Chelsea and their midweek draw in the Europa League would not have done much to damper the spirits.

United have had their ups and downs but are only three points adrift of Chelsea in fourth. Watford on the other hand are six points ahead of basement dwellers Norwich City and only a point off Aston Villa in 17th place.

Watford will call to mind the 2-0 victory over United two months ago but their record at United reads dismally. They have also failed to win since January 12 and claimed two points from a possible 12 since.

United are historically dominant over Watford having won 22 of their 33 games against the Hornets and as recently as last season, United won the corresponding fixture 2-1.

Scott McTominay may make his long awaited return from injury but he is unlikely to start the game. Eric Bailly was in fine form against Chelsea and knocks aside, will be I contention for a place in the starting eleven. Odion Ighalo is in strong contention to feature against his former club after coming off the bench against Chelsea.Captain Troy Deeney should lead the line for Watford and his presence usually makes the difference for Watford in the tougher moments of games.

Considering Watford’s perilous form and United’s current projectory, I expect The Red Devils to put in the requisite performance to get three points at home.
