Minutes later, Saar made it 2-0 before the end of the first half.  In the second half, Cristiano Ronaldo assisted Van de Beek to bring Manchester United closer to the scoreboard, however, it was not enough for them to look for an equalizer after Harry Maguire was sent off in the 68th minute.

9:48 AM15 days ago

The words of the Chief of Staff

During the press conference following the match, the Red Devils' technical director shared a brief report on the current situation of the squad, emphasizing the physical condition of some players in particular.


"This week has been very positive. Anyway, we have some players in doubt [for this Saturday's game]."

"Paul will be out for a while, as will Raphaël [Varane]. Taking them two out, I think the rest will be back in the near future. Some will do it this weekend and others in the next few days, but that's the way things are," he added.

9:43 AM15 days ago

9:33 AM16 days ago

9:28 AM16 days ago

Here's how Manchester United arrive!

Many believed that Solskjaer's tenure in charge of United would come to an end in the international break. However, the Norwegian is holding on to his job by the skin of his teeth. They cannot afford another defeat this weekend in the Premier League, which could see them drop into the bottom half of the table.

United's league form has been the biggest concern, as they were considered title contenders at the start of the season. However, a nine-point gap has already opened up between them and Chelsea as they have won just once in their last five games.

United have been beaten three times in their last four games, which includes a miserable defeat against Manchester City before the international break. The 2-0 scoreline doesn't tell half the story of how dominant United's city rivals were in that encounter.

9:23 AM16 days ago

This is how Watford arrives!

Claudio Ranieri could already be under pressure at Watford as the Hornets have a reputation for sacking managers when results don't go their way. The likeable Italian has won just once since taking charge of the club, but the three defeats suffered mean that the team sits just two points above the relegation places going into this game against United.

Watford lost for the seventh time this season in their last Premier League game against Arsenal. The Hornets put up a good fight in that match, but their resistance was finally broken in the second half.

Ranieri was irritated by the Gunners' goal, however, as he felt they should have given the ball back to his team after it was taken out to allow an Arsenal player to be dealt with.

9:18 AM16 days ago

THIS IS HOW WATFORD COMES OUT!

This is how Watford will try to stay with the victory at home. 

9:13 AM16 days ago

THEY ARE ALREADY AT THE STADIUM!

Manchester United is already present in the yellow hive and is preparing for the start of the match, it is important to win today not only to climb positions, but to increase the confidence in the team and arrive with high spirits to the next day of Champions League. 
9:08 AM16 days ago

The most creative player of the season

Bruno Fernandes has become one of the attacking midfielders with the most chances created so far this season, the Portuguese has created 37 chances for his team. More than incredible!  
9:03 AM16 days ago

MANCHESTER UNITED'S ELEVEN READY!

This is how the Red Devil's team will take the field for their away match against Watford. Despite doubts about certain names, Matic, Bruno Fernandes and Shaw will be present on the field. 

8:58 AM16 days ago

THE HISTORY BETWEEN THE TWO TEAMS!

The last six matches in which these two teams have met offer valuable information on what to expect in this encounter, where we find that with 5 wins and one loss, Manchester United dominates the recent head-to-head between these clubs. Of those five wins four have been at home and one away last fall 2018 with the final result 1 - 2 for the Manchester team.

If we expand the match history we find that since 1999 these teams have met 16 times and the numbers continue to favor Manchester overwhelmingly with 14 wins compared to only 2 that Watford has achieved. The last match in which these two teams met was last January of this year at Old Trafford and in the framework of the FA Cup, the final result was in favor of Manchester United by 1 - 0 and that day we saw a clear dominance of the locals and an early goal by Scott Mc Tominay in the 5th minute.

8:53 AM16 days ago

THE WAIT IS OVER!

The wait is over, the Premier League is finally back in action after the FIFA break in November. Watford will host Manchester United at the Vicarage Road Stadium, both teams come from a significant defeat and it will be very important to get the three points today.

Watch out for this Manchester United player:

The best player in the world for his own and others, Portuguese star, legend and idol of several clubs in Europe, Cristiano Ronaldo will be the player to follow for this match. Since his return to the club where he was born as a legend, the Portuguese player has played 806 minutes with the red devil's jersey, he has appeared 10 times in the starting line-up, he has scored 7 times so far this season and assisted once. He has also received 2 yellow cards and has not been sent off, so CR7 will be the player to watch for this match.

8:33 AM16 days ago

Watch out for this Watford player

In the Wasps the presence of the Colombian Juan Camilo Hernandez stands out, who comes from scoring one of the winning goals in the second matchday and who is shown as one of the alternatives in the attack to try to be very effective in front of the rival goal, so he could be the key player when facing Wolves.

In the VAR, referees Stuart Attwell and Constantine Hatzidakis will be in charge of monitoring any dubious play inside the box or that merits a red card.
8:08 AM16 days ago

Looking to go up

For their part, the Red Devils have had a very irregular season so far this season. Their performances in the UEFA Champions League have left much to be desired and in the Premier League they have dropped important positions, also, they are coming off a major setback after losing at home to Manchester City in the city derby. Undoubtedly, Manchester United must start adding points and get more victories as they are slowly starting to move away from European places.

8:03 AM16 days ago

To lift their faces

Watford's squad is still in trouble since the Premier League began, for starters, they have not been able to get out of the bottom of the table and remain in the line to avoid getting into relegation places, also, they have only managed to get 10 of the 33 points played in the current season and are one of the highest scoring teams with 19 goals against. It is of vital importance to start adding points as there could be harsh consequences in the future, also, it will be a difficult match not only because of the rival they will face, but also because they come with their spirits down after losing to Arsenal as visitors.
7:58 AM16 days ago

A duel of different realities

The twelfth date of the Premier League will bring us a clash of different realities when Watford receives the Red Devil's at the Vicarage Road Stadium, on the one hand, Watford is in 17th position with 10 points so far this season and only three times they have managed to get three points, also, it is very important that the Moose team continues to add as the tight sotanera zone could put them in danger of relegation. On the other hand, Manchester United have been playing irregularly throughout the championship and are positioned in 6th place with 17 points from 5 wins, 2 draws and 4 defeats. Both teams are coming from a tough defeat so it will be of vital importance to start winning.
7:53 AM16 days ago
