No, the 27-year-old wasn’t being disrespectful or suggesting Leeds is an easy draw for the Hornets.
Indeed, Deeney’s dad is a massive United fan – so the Whites visiting Vicarage Road is the dream draw for his family.
There was a little bit of confusion at first as some fans took exception to the Watford man’s tweets.
Eventually, though, he cleared the situation up and is now looking forward to what should be a memorable day for both Leeds and the home side.

However, Deeney did mock defender Giuseppe Bellusci…
I'm relaxed mate never been worried about somebody on Twitter also hope it's better than last time he played https://t.co/kio4oqV7OX— Troy Deeney (@T_Deeney) January 31, 2016
Leeds will likely bring big numbers to Watford and both teams now have a great opportunity to reach the FA Cup quarter-finals.
The Hornets proved themselves against Championship opposition in the last round against Nottingham Forest.
But Leeds have been going strong under Steve Evans. It should be a cracker.
