Manchester United Starting XI Prediction at Watford



It’s another quick turnaround for Manchester United as they head to Vicarage Road tomorrow night to take on Watford in Premier League play. Let’s take a look at who United manager Jose Mourinho could place in his first team when the Red Devils do battled with the Hornets in Hertfordshire.

Mourinho did say that he felt he played too many attackers on Saturday in the 1-0 win over Brighton & Hove Albion, so perhaps we will see an approach that’s in stark contrast come Tuesday night.

Romelu Lukaku

Anthony Martial        Juan Mata     Marcus Rashford

Nemanja Matic      Paul Pogba

    Ashley Young        Marcos Rojo   Chris Smalling      Antonio Valencia

David de Gea

We decided to place all three scoring threats- Martial, Rashford and Lukaku in our line-up prediction up front. In the back line, Rojo seems like the only healthy and available choice to pair up with Smalling right now. Watford come into this match eighth in the table with 21 points.

Odds: Man Utd 4/6, draw 14/5, Watford 4/1

Prediction: United 2, Watford 1
