Manchester United are set to take on Watford in the premier league game on Sunday, 22 December 2019 at the Vicarage road stadium in Watford. Its a massive game for United who will be looking to close the gap on their top four rivals (Tottenham and Chelsea) who happen to play against each other later in the day. A win for Solskjaer will put them right back in the top four reckoning.
Watford vs Manchester United Preview: Watford are currently bottom of the table with just 9 points so far this season and they are the only side in Premier league without a home win this season. United on the other hand have won just twice on the road in Premier League and lost 3 and drawn 3 so far. Watford will fancy their chances against what is a very unpredictable United side who can turn up against Champions City away but can drop points at home to newly promoted sides.
Teams News and Possible Lineups: United will be without Paul Pogba who has been declared ill and won’t travel with the squad. Solskjaer is likely to go with the trusted front trio of Martial, Rashford and James while Mason Greenwood is likely to come off as sub if needed. Fred and McTomminy should continue to anchor the midfield while the back four of Shaw, Maguair, Lindelof and Wan-Bassaka should start infront of De Gea.
Match Predictions: On paper and looking at the recent form of these two, United should cruise to victory in this one but they have dropped points against the likes of Aston Villa, Sheffield United and Everton in recent weeks and this might just be another frustrating night for Ole. Watford however will have to produce a super good performance to register their first home win of the season.
