When Manchester United hosts Watford in the Premier League at Old Trafford on Saturday, the Red Devils will be seeking to keep their top-four chances alive.
The Reds are coming off a 1-1 draw in the Champions League against Atletico Madrid, while the visitors were crushed 4-1 by Crystal Palace in the Premier League.
Following his equalizer against Atletico Madrid, Anthony Elanga could be given a start.
United can’t afford to drop any points if they want to finish in the Champions League spots at the end of the season, especially with the race for the top four set to go down to the wire.
have had a dreadful season so far, and are currently hovering in the relegation zone. Despite a change in management, the Hornets appear to be no better than they were under Claudio Ranieri, and United should expect to win this game, but it will not be easy.
This season, games against lower-level opposition have proven to be difficult for United to overcome. In these types of games, an early goal can go a long way, and if the Reds can get it, it will drive Watford out from behind, perhaps leaving spaces in the back for Ronaldo, Fernandes, and the rest of the team to exploit.
It won’t be simple, and I expect Watford to make United’s life difficult.
