Manchester United have the opportunity to extend their six-match unbeaten run in the Premier League when they face bottom-placed Watford on the road. The Red Devils have hugely impressed with their attacking displays over the past few weeks but they can still anticipate a tricky game at Vicarage Road with the Hornets now under the guidance of a new manager.
David de Gea has been the undisputed pick for the goalkeeping role in the Premier League and there are no doubts regarding his involvement on Sunday. The Spanish keeper contributed to Victor Lindelof’s own goal against Everton last weekend but he was indeed fouled in the lead-up, which was ignored by the referee.
In the defence, it should be the familiar combination from recent league games. Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Luke Shaw seem the first-choices for the right and left side of the backline. Lindelof, who has been shaky in a few games this term, should continue to partner Harry Maguire in the central defensive positions.
At the heart of the midfield, there are no doubts in terms of the selection. Scott McTominay and Fred will most certainly make the lineup on the back of their impressive displays together in recent games. Paul Pogba has been included in the travelling squad after recovering from an ankle fracture but the Frenchman may make a cameo appearance at best.
In the attack, it could remain the same from recent league encounters. Marcus Rashford and Daniel James are assured of their positions out wide. Jesse Lingard will probably continue in the number 10 position despite his inconsistent form with Anthony Martial leading the line.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has the temptation to start Mason Greenwood upfront on the back of his impressive displays of late, which would mean that Martial may drop into the second strike role ahead of Lingard. However, we think that Solskjaer could stick with the usual set of attackers and therefore, Greenwood may have to settle for minutes off the bench.
