Predicted Watford and Manchester United line-ups

Here is how we predict Watford and Manchester United will line up this weekend:

To be played on Saturday 21st November 2015 at 12:45. Venue: Vicarage Road, Watford

Odds: Watford 16/5, Draw 5/2, Man Utd 17/20

Watford welcome Manchester United to Vicarage Road on Saturday as both sets of players get back to domestic matters following the latest international break.

Watford lost 2-1 to Leicester City last time out while United overcame West Bromwich Albion courtesy of goals from Jesse Lingard and a Juan Mata penalty.

United are currently fourth in the Premier League table, just two points behind current leaders Manchester City, so Louis van Gaal’s side will be desperate to get another three points on the board this weekend.

But Watford are never an easy proposition, certainly in their own backyard, and the Hornets will want to improve on their current position of 11th.

In early team news, United are definitely without Antonio Valencia, Paddy McNair and Luke Shaw while Michael Carrick is a major doubt.

As for Watford, they must do without Joel Ekstrand while Jose Manuel Jurado has only a 25 per cent chance of recovering from a hamstring injury.
