Manchester United Starting XI Prediction at Watford FC


Manchester United head to Watford on Saturday afternoon, and manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer remains on the hot seat; sort of. While calls to sack him are only growing amongst the supporter base, club brass are showing zero signs of actually doing anything about.

So as former United States Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld once said, “you go to war with the army you have, not the army you wish you had.” That said, how might the Norwegian line ’em up this weekend against the Moose Men? Watford has a moose in their crest, despite being the Hornets, so there is always that.
