Watford vs Manchester United
KICK OFF: Saturday 15th sept 2018 | 18:30 CET
Premier League wk5 | Vicarage Road
Can United End Watford’s 100% Record in the 2018-2019 league Season?
The Hornets are enjoying a dream start this season and a 2 -1 thumping of Tottenham suggests they have a team to be feared this season. Jose Mourinho’s men won both legs last term, but they face an uphill task to get a decent result at Vicarage Road this time out.
Watford has a belief that they can compete with anyone who comes to their ground. Every player is doing their job, and the goals have been coming in. It’s not just a positive mentality that Watford has, but quality in abundance to harm opponents.
United bounced back to record a much-needed victory over Burnley. The Red Devils will hope to pick another win and fine-tune for the upcoming Champions League and domestic cup games. Romelu Lukaku got a brace in that last away match while Sanchez was at his sharpest. The international break grants Jose Mourinho enough time to reflect on some of his previous poor results.
Mourinho is a tactical specialist, and I think he’ll find the strategy to down Watford. I see a Man United win, but the first goal could be a decider.
Key Match Facts
- No side has won more home games than Watford since Javier Garcia took over in January 2018 (a run of seven games).
