Manchester United Prediction

Manchester united will also be keen to avoid a third defeat on the trot in all competitions as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side suffered back-to-back losses before the break to Arsenal in the Premier League and an FA Cup exit to Wolves.

In their defence, these losses were handed out to United away from home and now returning to Old Trafford this Saturday against Watford, the hosts will no doubt be looking to assert their authority once more.

In addition, Manchester United now trail the automatic Champions League spots and 4th placed Arsenal by just two points so I’m expecting the hosts to go for the jugular here and we could also see a few goals fly in too as a result.

Manchester United’s home record stands at 8-5-1 28/18 and are unbeaten in their last 12 matches on home soil, winning seven of these and drawing five. Under Solskjaer, United have won four of their six matches at Old Trafford, and the over 2.5 goals mark has been achieved in 11 of their 14 home matches to date.


Key-Facts – Manchester United v Watford

  • Manchester United are unbeaten in their last 12 home matches in the EPL
  • 11 of Manchester United’s 14 home matches have resulted in over 2.5 goals
  • Watford have scored in 11 of their 16 away matches to date in the EPL


Watford Prediction

This will be the second away match on the trot for Watford who face another daunting trip to Manchester, this time, to take on United at Old Trafford who have the smell of Champions League football in their nostrils.

With three wins from their last five matches in the Premier League with wins against Everton, Cardiff City and Leicester City though, Watford won’t be too fazed by facing United here, as the Hornets seem to delight in causing an upset – but recent heavy defeats at Liverpool 5-0 and Manchester City 3-1 suggest they could be out of their depth against United too.

Watford’s away record reads an inconsistent looking 5-5-6 23/25 and includes just two away wins from their last seven matches on their travels which were gained at Crystal Palace and Cardiff City.

But we’re not needing Watford to win this match, we just need them to contribute by way of goals – and with 8 of their 16 away matches resulting in over 2.5 goals as well as the visitors scoring in 11 of their 16 away matches to date, there’s a fair chance that they will.

Betting Tips Verdict

Manchester United will go all out for the three points here as they close in on a top four finish while Watford always pose a threat going forward.
