How Manchester United should line up against Watford in Premier League match
Manchester United will be hoping for an upturn in form when they travel to face Watford in the Premier League this weekend.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer remains under immense pressure after four defeats in the last six league outings and knows an improved display is needed from his side if he is to stay in a job.
United have won 18 of their 26 matches against Watford but are winless in three Premier League matches against newly promoted teams, drawing against West Brom, Leeds and Fulham last season.
They haven’t gone four in a row without a win against such opposition since a run ending in September 1997.
In terms of early team news, Raphael Varane will miss the match through injury while Paul Pogba is suspended.
Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is likely glad to have had an interruption to the domestic game thanks to the international break, after receiving heavy criticism for some painful defeats to rivals earlier this month.
