Hornets to hold out against United

Watford

Watford v Manchester United Betting Tips – Premier League, 15th September 5.30pm

This will be a big test for both of these. Watford produced a great win over Tottenham just before the international break as they passed a pretty severe test to their strong start. But they passed it and that’s four wins from four. Manchester United are playing catch up after indifferent form but will be looking for to build on their much-needed win over Burnley. Read our predictions for Watford v Manchester United.

Watford News and Form

This has been a fine start to the new Premier League season for Watford. Considering that boss Javi Gracia was an early favorite to get the sack, it’s a great return. Their biggest statement of all came in a 2-1 home success over Spurs which they took just before the international break. That proved that their wins in earlier games weren’t just flukes. This is going to be their fourth home game this season and the Hornets have produced exactly two goals in all three of their games at Vicarage Road already this term. We are going to have a look over 2.5 goals with bet365 at 19/20 odds* (Betting Odds were taken on September 12th, 2018 at 1:14 p.m.) as United’s defence hasn’t been great. The last seven fixtures between these two at Vicarage Road have gone above the goal line (all competitions)

Watford have not been that tight at the back with only the one clean sheet. That lends appeal to both teams to score at 4/5 odds* (Betting Odds were taken on September 12th, 2018 at 1:14 p.m.). Roberto Pereyra has made a really impressive start for them this season and he has netted three goals in four games in the top flight. That means he is a good anytime goalscorer option for the fixture. We see a trend where the Hornets have been winning at both half time and full time in each of their last three games.

Manchester United News and Form

The Red Devils have only gone W2 L2 this season in the top flight. They got a win at Burnley just before the international break which snapped their two-match losing streak. That was a comfortable win at Turf Moor they took as well. So starting six points adrift of Watford, the Red Devils really can’t afford to lose this one. Away from home this season United suffered that shock 3-2 loss at Brighton where they were outplayed before getting that win at Burnley. Adding some more weight to this game going over 2.5 goals is that United have scored exactly two goals in three of their four matches this term. Three of their four matches have gone over the goal line.

Romelu Lukaku has been producing in front of goal for them this season and he the 4/1 first goalscorer favourite for the game* (Betting Odds were taken on September 12th, 2018 at 1:14 p.m.). The Red Devils have scored freely in recent visits to Watford, having netted at least two goals in all but one of their last seven trips to Vicarage Road. Putting it all together for our Watford v Manchester United predictions, really the 2-2 correct score market option at 14/1 odds appeals a lot* (Betting Odds were taken on September 12th, 2018 at 1:14 p.m.). This is not going to be an easy test for them especially with the distraction of the Champions League starting up in midweek.

Watford v Manchester United Head to Head

It was Manchester United on top last season between the two of them. Manchester United won both meetings and are on a three-match winning streak against Watford.
