Manchester United will try to do the job on Sunday against Watford
After losing two points during their home game against Everton, Manchester United will try to do the job on Sunday against Watford at the Vicarage Road. We will discuss this fixture in our English Premier League predictions.
Last week Manchester United dissapointed their fans with a 1-1 draw at home against the struggling Everton. Marcus Greenwood saved the Red Devils with an equalising goal and we can say it was not the best possible performance by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team. At this moment United are 6th in the Premier League standings with 25 points, just one point behind the 5th Tottenham Hotspur.
Manchester United are unbeaten in their last five matches in the league, but they need to win as much as possible in order to keep their chances for reaching the Top 4. A game against the weakest team in the league on Sunday is a “must win” for the Red Devils.
Paul Pogba is still sidelined for United, while Marcos Rojo, Diogo Dalot and Eric Bailly remain injured as well.
Just one win since the start of the season and only 9 points won so far – this is how Watford’s record is looking right now. The Hornets already sacked two manages since the summer, but nothing really changes for them.
Since he replaced the sacked Quique Sanchez Flores, the manager Nigel Pearson is still without a win with the club. In the previous round Watford didn’t surprise anybody by losing their visit to the leader Liverpool. Mohamed Salah killed the Hornets’ efforts with a brace in Ben Foster’s net.
In our English Premier League predictions we can make the conclusion that for Watford it’s going to be very difficult to win a point or three against Manchester United on Sunday. Right now the Hornets are in an enormous crisis and their quality is not enough to trouble the best teams in the country.
