Manchester United visit Watford in the Premier League on Saturday hoping to follow up their recent victory at Burnley. You can use this bet365 bonus code to back the visitors in a game they are expected to win.
United have won just two out of four games this season, but they looked on good terms with themselves at Turf Moor.
Jose Mourinho’s side seemed set for a comfortable victory as Romelu Lukaku’s double put them 2-0 up at half-time, but Marcus Rashford’s sending off with 19 minutes to play set up an awkward finale.
However, Burnley showed little sign of mounting a late fightback and United comfortably held on to move up to 10th in the table.
Unbeaten Watford are level on points with Liverpool and Chelsea at the top of the standings, but the Red Devils will fancy their chances of handing the Hornets their first defeat this season.
The two sides have met 10 times in the Premier League. Watford have triumphed in just one of those meetings, with United winning the other nine.
Luke Shaw is unlikely to play for United after suffering a concussion during England’s loss against Spain. Marcos Rojo or Eric Bailly could replace him in the starting XI.
Phil Jones and Sergio Romero remain on the sidelines, while Rashford misses the game after picking up a three-match ban following his red card at Turf Moor.
Younes Kaboul and Tom Cleverley are still out for the home side, but Gerard Deulofeu is close to returning.
The game marks the start of a hectic period for United. They visit Young Boys in the Champions League on Wednesday, before returning to league action against Wolverhampton Wanderers next Saturday.
United host Derby County in the EFL Cup the following Tuesday, ahead of a trip to West Ham United in the league on September 29.
The Red Devils welcome Valencia to Old Trafford in the Champions League the following Tuesday, before rounding a busy few weeks at home to Newcastle United in the league on October 6.
Mourinho will be eager to start that run of games with a victory at Watford, and United look good value at odds of 10/11 to pick up three points this weekend.
