Match status: 2019/20 Premier League - Matchweek 18
Kick-off:
Venue: Vicarage Road (Watford)
Following a disappointing start to the campaign, there appears to be a new lease of life around the Manchester club in recent weeks. Wins against Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City in quick succession have instilled a good-feel within the club’s dressing room.

The bookmakers were already tipping Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for the sack as the calendar rolled into December, with the fixture schedule appearing pretty unkind to the Norwegian. However, the manager has defied all logic, registering two wins and a draw in his last three Premier League games.

Now within four points of Chelsea in fourth-place, the Red Devils could not have asked for a better game to cut-down on the Blues, with an easy game against 20th placed Watford on the horizon.

Watford vs Manchester United Team News

Watford were handed a herculean task of upsetting table-toppers Liverpool on the last match-day. A trip to the dreaded Anfield Stadium was always going to be daunting for any Premier League side and the travelling supporters can have no complaints about their loss.

Dominated from start to finish, the Hornets failed to get their mitts on the game as they were outclassed by the opponent in every single department on the pitch. A 2-0 defeat must have gone down well with manager Nigel Pearson as the game could easily have ended in a much more humiliating score-line.

Manchester United, on the other hand, were made to scrap really hard to salvage a draw at Old Trafford against in-form Everton. After going behind in the first period of the game, the Red Devils threw men forward in search of an equalizer, all to no avail.

Substitute Mason Greenwood turned savior for the 20-time Premier League winners, ushering the ball onto his preferred right foot before firing one into the bottom corner of Pickford’s net.

This weekend, Watford will have the advantage of playing in front of the home support but that might not count for much given their awful form in the league so far. They have probably been the worst team in the Premier League and the standings reflect just that.

The Hornets have been so poor that they have failed to hit double figures in points even after seventeen games with just nine to their name. They have a single win to their name this whole campaign - that singular win coming on the road.

At Vicarage Road, they have registered a measly four goals all season with the Premier League season already at its halfway mark. Also, Nigel Pearson’s men are winless in 17 of their previous 20 games across all competitions and have lost four of their preceding five.

The Red Devils, who are unbeaten in their previous five games and desperate to break into the league’s top-four club, will already be licking their lips at the prospect of facing this out-of-sorts Watford team. A win is almost certain for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men.

Watford vs Man United Predictions

The record books are highly stacked against the home side in this fixture. It is really difficult, if not impossible, to see the Hornets causing an upset against Manchester United here. They do not have it within themselves to spring up a Christmas miracle.

Manchester United are on a roll at the moment and will fancy getting a win against lowly Watford to keep up the pressure on fourth-placed Chelsea. They should come out of this one with a very comfortable victory.
