Fifth in the table Manchester United welcome eighth placed Watford to Old Trafford for this weekend’s Premier League tie.


Man Utd lost their first Premier League game since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took charge in December – that 2-0 loss away to Arsenal in their last league outing ended a run of 12 games unbeaten in the league. The defeat was followed up by a 2-1 loss to Wolves in the FA Cup the following week.

Watford also lost their last Premier League match – which was a 3-1 defeat away to Manchester City, but they did go on to win their FA Cup tie 2-1 at home against Crystal Palace that put them in the Semi Finals.

Manchester United won this fixture last season 1-0 thanks to a goal from Marcus Rashford – but this time Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has a massive selection headache on his hands with a bunch of players on the treatment table. Alexis Sanchez, Matteo Darmian and Antonio Valencia are all out while Eric Bailly, Luke Shaw, Romelu, Lukaku, Marcus Rashford, Nemanja Matic, and Antony Martial struggling to be fit in time for this game.

Watford’s 3-1 win at home over United in September 2016 was their first victory over the Red Devils since a 1-0 win back in 1986 – The Hornets have lost their last two league games on the road 3-1 to Man City and 5-0 to Liverpool. Greek full back Jose Holebas is Watford only real injury concern. A 2-1 win for Man Utd is a decent bet.

Total goals under 3.5

Man Utd have scored just four goals in their last three victories at home over Watford and that is why the bookmakers are offering odds for the over 3.5 goals scored market.
