After their comprehensive victory over Leicester last week, Manchester United can finally move out of sixth place, temporarily at least.
Three points at home to Watford would be enough to lift them over Liverpool before their clash with Tottenham Hotspur in the late game.
Too often in recent years, when United have needed to win at all costs, they’ve failed to do so. Walter Mazzari’s side have to be disposed of if Mourinho has ambitions of Champions League qualification.
The Hornets arrive in excellent form after collecting maximum points at the Emirates and overcoming a stubborn Burnley side. Watford beat Mourinho’s charges in the reverse fixture back in September, running out 3-1 winners.
The main talking point of the team news centred around whether or not Anthony Martial would be restored to the starting eleven amidst talk of a rift between he and the Special One. The former Monaco man was included as the team news emerged.
