Confirmed: Manchester United and Watford line-ups

Old Trafford 3

Here is how Manchester United and Watford will line up for this evening’s match:

Manchester United welcome Watford to Old Trafford tonight for their latest Premier League clash.

United are on a fine run of form after scoring 11 goals in their last three matches in all competitions, and the attacking style seen in recent weeks is in stark contrast to their dour performances for much of the campaign to date.

Much of that has been down to the superb form of youngster Marcus Rashford and the resurgence of Memphis Depay, who finally looks to have settled after a shaky start.

United are fifth in the table going into this clash but can go level on points with fourth-placed Manchester City depending on how things play out tonight.

As for Watford, they are 12th in the table with 37 points from their 27 matches to date, and they certainly have the players to cause a shock this evening.

The last time these two sides met United ran out 2-1 winners courtesy of goals from Depay and a late Troy Deeney own-goal, so the Watford man will be hoping to make up for that tonight.
