Contributor’s Pick

According to Head-2-Head statistics, Manchester United have won their last six matches in all competitions against Watford FC, scoring at least 3 goals in five of those games. Manchester United have also kept clean sheets in their last four English Premier League matches.

Watford will come into the match on the back of a 2-1 loss at the hands of Leicester City before the international break. In fact, Watford have won on only two occasions in their last six outings. The newly promoted side are heavily dependant on Odion Ighalo for their goals.

The match between the Hornets and the Red Devils is likely to be a low scoring affair, as only seven goals have been scored at Vicarage Road so far and Manchester United have played out goalless draws in their last two away matches.

Manchester United can move to the top of the table should they win against Watford. Although Louis van Gaal’s side are favourites for the encounter, a 1-1 draw is a more probable result.

“A lot of people wrote them off at the start of the season but they’re a team that works hard and gets players on the ball, and they score goals.

It’s the club where I started and learnt my trade and, hopefully, it’ll be a nice reception”

– Ashley Young, Manchester United.
