Watford vs Manchester United / Premier League – The last Saturday's match in the fifth round of the English Premier League brings us one of three teams that have the highest impact so far, and those are London’s Watford and the famous Manchester United, which has six points less and occupies the 10th place on the table. However, this is why Manchester United can boast that they have scored 15 wins and one draw in the last six duels with Watford.
Watford vs Manchester United begins 15.09.2018 at 18:30 CET
That is why the team of Watford now fears from this duel with the most successful English team, no matter how much they did not believe they would have such a good opening of the new season. Namely, coach Gracia's players have in the first four rounds of the Premier League made a home victory over Brighton, Crystal Palace and Tottenham, as well as over Burnley as guests, while they celebrated routinely in the Champions League with 2-0 win over Reading.
Of course, all of these wins have the highest weight against the last Tottenham, since they before that had a maximum effect in the championship, but the popular “Hornets” have nevertheless managed to overcome them, so together with Liverpool and Chelsea they are today at the very top of the Premier league table. Therefore, it is quite clear that Gracia will now send the same starting lineup to the field as against United, especially since center-backs Kaboul and Britos, midfielder Cleverley and striker Deulofeu are still out of action due to injuries.
Probable lineups Watford: Foster – Janmaat, Cathcart, Kabasele, Holebas – Hughes, Doucoure, Capoue, Pereyra – Gray, Deeney
As for guests from Manchester City, after four rounds played, they have a half-effect and are currently in the middle of the Premier League table, but for the most important thing for Mourinho is that they celebrated a 2-0 victory over Burnley in their last appearance, because in this way they finally managed to recover from two defeats in a row. Namely, they had previously lost away from Brighton and at home from Tottenham, while they in the first round managed to overcome the team of Leicester at home.
Otherwise, Mourinho is, in addition to three points won in duel with Burnley, is particularly pleased with the fact that his best striker, Lukaku, who was a double shooter in that match, finally started playing better and that midfielder Matic completely recovered, so together with Pogba and Fellaini, we now expect him from the first minute against Watford. On the other hand, defender Shaw has joined goalkeeper Romer, and defenders Dalio, Rojo and Jones on the list of injured players, while striker Rashford is suspended due to the red card.
Probable lineups Manchester United: de Gea – Valencia, Smalling, Lindelof, Young – Fellaini, Matić, Pogba – Lingard, Lukaku, Sanchez
Watford vs Manchester United PICK
Even though Watford has absolutely surprised us all with their brilliant games in the first four rounds, we still think that coach Mourinho's players will do their utmost best to inflict them the first defeat in the new season, especially since they had very positive experiences in previous years on this hosting.
