Watford host Manchester United at the Vicarage for the fifth round of the English Premier late Saturday afternoon. The Hornets will be facing yet another test in a season that has started perfectly with four wins in four games.
They showed their grit by dominating and slaying Tottenham 2-1 before breaking for the internationals. Troy Deeney and Craig Cathcart were on target at this very ground, with Tottenham’s consolation coming from an own goal. They have been touted to pull a Leicester this season but they have to prove that by showing consistency against teams of United’s stature.
The Red Devils’ rough start was atoned by a 2-0 win at Burnley in their last attachment, but a small blot in the form of a Marcus Rashford did occur. The Alexis Sanchez whom Mourinho had tipped to shine this season is yet to show up, while Paul Pogba’s statement that his relationship with the Portuguese is purely "player-coach’ does not exactly symbolize harmony in camp.
Burnley’s match to lose, this.
