Watford News and Form – Can Watford beat Manchester United?

It was a tough introduction for new Watford boss Nigel Pearson as he took the Hornets to Anfield to face Liverpool. They lost 2-0. That was the third game in a row in which they have failed to score. Watford have netted in just one of their last five league games now. 17 games into the league season and still Watford have not taken their goal-scoring tally to double fixtures (9). The Hornets have not taken a home win this season, picking up a D4 L4 record at Vicarage Road.

Mason Greenwood Last Goalscorer


They did get a point in their last home game, a 0-0 draw with Crystal Palace. Watford have produced only the four goals at home this season, while they have conceded a total of 13. Watford have failed to score in 62% of their fixtures at Vicarage Road. Looking back at an even bigger picture, the Hornets have won just one of their last 20 Premier League matches. Of the ten league losses that they have suffered in this campaign, all but three have been by a margin of at least two goals. There is really no positives to find in their statistics.

Manchester United News and Form – Can improving Red Devils beat Watford?

Things are looking a bit better for Manchester United who are unbeaten in six league outings (W3 D3). They are still prone to churning out a terrible half of football though. Last weekend they were under pressure at Old Trafford by Everton. It needed a late intervention from young Mason Greenwood to get the Red Devils a point in a 1-1 draw. In their eight away games, Manchester United have only scored 10 goals. Five of those have been produced in their last two road games.

In their last away game, they came up with a huge result, a 2-1 win at Manchester City. That was only their second away win of the entire campaign (D3 L3). All of United’s away defeats this season have strangely been against teams who finished last weekend in the bottom half of the table. Just 38% of their away games have gone over 2.5 goals and United don’t have an away clean sheet on the board. They have conceded 73% of their away goals in the second half of fixtures.

Watford vs Manhcester United Predictions

Manchester United to win: A change of manager isn’t likely to immediately see Watford turn into a side that is going to be a top-six club. The Red Devils have found a little bit of form for themselves and going along nicely enough to bank three points.
