Manchester United vs Watford
England – FA Cup
Date: Saturday, 9 January 2021
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Old Trafford.

The Red Devils have been one of the absolute best teams in the PL this season after almost a decade of struggles in the English top flight. Suffice it to say that fans are thrilled beyond measure.

They are currently placed second in the table. But note that they are level on points with toppers Liverpool, and have a game in hand as well.

The team will be determined to carry forward this momentum, especially with some of the major title-contenders struggling at the moment.

And in that regards, they are easily the favorites this Saturday – especially with them playing at home, against a team from the Championship.

On top of that, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men also have a superb h2h record against this opponent as well.

By the looks of things, expect Manchester United to post a thumping win this weekend at the Old Trafford.

Manchester United vs Watford: Head-to-head (h2h)

  • The latest encounter had ended in a 3-0 win for the Devils.
  • They had recorded wins in 14 of the former 16 clashes.
  • They had scored two or more goals in 12 of the past 16 meetings.
  • At this venue, the hosts have a 100% winning record since 1999.
  • In the past two decades, the guests have scored a total of one goal at this ground.

Manchester United vs Watford Prediction

The Hornets are from the Championship, and this fact alone should cast them as the underdogs against an in-form title-contender from the Premier League.

Going on, Xisco Munoz’s men were winless in seven of their previous eleven overall games, and they have won just thrice in their past 25 road trips. In the process, they had also gone on a six-fixture losing run away from home.

On the other hand, their counterparts were unbeaten in 12 of their preceding 15 overall fixtures, and they have lost just thrice at home in the past three months – with the defeats having come against Manchester City, PSG, and Arsenal.

In addition, Solskjaer’s men also have a phenomenal h2h record against this foe over the past two decades, and particularly so at this stadium. Note that they have also scored plenty in the process.

Taking these observations into account, expect a commendable Manchester United win this Saturday at their home.
