Watford Prediction – Can Watford produce a spark?

Watford’s new era under Nigel Pearson has started in modest fashion as The Hornets gained a point in his first game in charge of the London club when his new side drew 0-0 at home with Crystal Palace but suffered an expected defeat away at Anfield in a 2-0 loss to Liverpool.

That defeat to Liverpool became Watford’s fourth defeat in five matches following earlier losses to Burnley, Southampton and Leicester City, and although Watford have appointed their third manager so far this season with Pearson on board, it remains to be seen whether he can turn Watford’s fortunes around.

The hosts currently sit bottom of the Premier League with just 9 points to their name after the first 17 matches played of the season (which is almost halfway through the season), along with gaining just 1 win throughout the campaign to date.

That win came in the shape of a 2-0 win away from home at fellow strugglers, Norwich City, but The Hornets still remain the only side in the top flight yet to register a win on home turf this term, while scoring the least number of goals at home amidst a poor home record of 0-4-4 4/13.

Manchester United Prediction – Can Manchester United continue progress?

Visitors Manchester United have been quietly going about their business and have made slow but steady progress back up the Premier League table following an unbeaten run of 6 matches without defeat as the Red Devils have moved up into 6th place and just 1 point behind 5th placed Tottenham.

After winning just 1 of their previous 6 matches, recent wins against Brighton, Tottenham and most satisfying of all, a 2-1 win against their ‘noisy neighbours’ Manchester City, along with points picked up in draws with Sheffield United, Aston Villa and Everton have kept the visitors in touch with the top five and a possible European spot.

Although recent results on their travels have produced mixed returns with wins at Norwich City and Manchester City as well as surprising defeats at Newcastle United and Bournemouth, United should still have too much quality in the final third for their hosts here.

In addition, Manchester United have won the last 5 meetings on the trot against Watford and this Sunday should make it six on the bounce.


Key-Facts – Watford vs Manchester United

  • Watford have lost 4 of their last 5 matches in the Premier League
  • Watford are still without a home win so far in this season’s top flight
  • Manchester United have won the last 5 meetings on the trot against Watford


Betting Tips Verdict

Watford just can’t buy a win for love nor money while United will be keen to extend their unbeaten run.
