Watford vs Manchester United match preview and betting tips 18 Sep 2016

After losing two games in a row - against Manchester City in the Premier League and Feyenoord in the Europa League, now Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United will try to bounce back against Watford at the Vicarage Road.

The Red Devils dissapointed their fans in the Manchester derby and lost their first european game for this season, which is a reason for a serious concern at the Old Trafford. If United fail to win against Walter Mazzarri’s Watford, they could seriously fall behind the current leader in the league Manchester City. Pep Guardiola’s team already won its game agaisnt Bournemouth, enjoying a fifth win from five played games so far. 

There are some problems for Jose Mourinho before the visit to Watford. The defenders Phil Jones and Eric Bailly are healing injuries, while the Armenian winger Henrik Mkhitaryan is also having problems. 

Watford on the other hand can’t rely on Stefano Okaka and Brice Dja Djedje, who are also injured. 

The pressure is on Manchester United to win this one. The Red Devils know that every point is going to be crucial in the competition of teams like Manchester City, Chelsea, Liverpool, Tottenham and Arsenal, so Jose Mourinho is aware that everything else, but a win against Watford is going to be a failure. 

Walter Mazzarri finally enjoyed his first Premier League win last week, when Watford beat West Ham in London, scoring four goals in the process. Mazzarri gained serious reputation during his tenure with Napoli in the Serie A, so everyone expects some great things from him in the Premier League. 

Prediciton: Manchester United are a team who knows how to bounce back from dissapointing results. Jose Mourinho is one of the greatest motivators in modern football, so we should expect a solid answer from the Red Devils after two consecutive loses. We expect to see Manchester United winning this game, celebrating their fourth win from the beginning of the campaign.
