Manchester United vs Watford
English Premier League
Date: Sunday, 30 March 2019
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Old Trafford.
Manchester United have seen two troubled displays ahead of the International break and now host Watford for their Matchday 32 clash on Saturday desperate to return to the winning ways, looking to challenge the Premier League top 4 as they sit two points behind Arsenal.
Red Devils have bagged an all-important win at PSG to make it to Champions League Quarter-finals but failed to build on it, as they saw Gunners snatch important league points and crashed out of the FA Cup in the hands of Wolverhampton. Just a late goal from Rashford proved nothing more than a consolation at Wolves and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men will need more on the day.
Watford come into the match in a more unpredictable spell of form after failing to connect any two same results since mid-February, where they saw two wins and two losses in the last four outings.
Javi Gracia’s men beat Crystal Palace 2-1 in FA Cup just before the International break and will now surely be very motivated for an upset at Old Trafford despite struggles to cope with big guns on the road.
Manchester United vs Watford: Head-to-head
Manchester United snatched points at Vicarage Road in a 1-2 win with goals from Lukaku and Smalling.
Red Devils bagged 14 wins in the sides’ last 15 head-to-head clashes.
