Watford will host wounded Manchester United at Vicarage Road on Sunday as Jose Mourinho’s boys hope to get back on track.

Watford had a wonderful performance last weekend, they handed Newcastle their first league defeat at London Stadium. West Ham were strong in the first half, Michail Antonio headed in twice to put the Hammers in front, but O. Ighalo and T. Deeney pulled The Hornets level in just before halftime. Later in the second half, E. Capoue and J. Holebas scored twice to hand Watford their first win of the season.

Jose Mourinho’s ego was bruised last weekend as his side lost to his rival Pep Guardiola in a derby game, they also lost in the Europa league on Thursday night to make it 2 successive defeats in all competitions.
