What Trueform says for Watford vs Man Utd
Watford have been a revelation this season and it is hard to turn down good odds for them to claim a fifth straight Premier League win when hosting Manchester United.
Jose Mourinho’s Red Devils have had a shaky start, despite steadying the ship slightly with a victory at Burnley before the international break.
The Hornets won this fixture a couple of seasons ago and appeal at 16/5 for another upset in our opening Watford vs Man Utd prediction.
A Look At Watford’s Betting Odds
Many felt Watford simply took advantage of a soft schedule by beating Brighton, Burnley and Crystal Palace, with an EFL Cup success at Reading added on.
However, the Hornets made everyone sit up and take notice when coming from behind to stun Tottenham 2-1 at Vicarage Road.
Goals from Troy Deeney and Craig Cathcart helped to overcome Abdoulaye Doucoure’s unfortunate own goal.
After being named August’s Premier League manager of the month, Javi Gracia said: “We are enjoying it and you never know what will happen.
“Our supporters are amazing in all of our games and we are trying to enjoy the atmosphere day-by-day, rather than only looking to the end of the road.”
David De Gea was beaten twice here last November and conceded three times on his previous visit exactly two years ago.
Last Watford line-up: Foster, Janmaat, Cathcart, Holebas, Kabasele, Doucoure, Hughes, Capoue, Pereyra, Deeney, Gray.
Winger Gerard Deulofeu has been out with a groin problem in recent weeks and suffered a minor injury on his return to training, but should be back soon. Midfielder Tom Cleverley (Achilles) is the Hornets’ only long-term absentee.
A Look At Manchester United’s Betting Odds
Mourinho named an experienced side for United’s trip to Turf Moor and that move paid off with a comfortable 2-0 triumph, with Romelu Lukaku bagging both goals.
However, Marcus Rashford is now suspended after being sent off in that game, while the in-form Luke Shaw suffered a nasty head injury when on England duty.
With speculation continuing over Paul Pogba’s future following comments made on German TV, there are still a few dark clouds hanging over the Red Devils.
We haven’t forgotten or forgiven the defensive frailties shown in a 3-2 defeat at Brighton or the 3-0 home loss to Tottenham.
The return of Champions League football with next week’s tricky trip to face Young Boys in Switzerland is another distraction.
All that makes 25/2 for a 2-1 home victory worth adding to our Watford vs Man Utd betting tips.
Last Man Utd line-up: De Gea, Lindelof, Smalling, Shaw, Valencia, Pogba, Lingard, Fellaini, Matic, Sanchez, Lukaku.
Rashford starts a three-match domestic ban, but Shaw could feature despite sustaining concussion last weekend.
Ander Herrera (ankle) and Marouane Fellaini (back) are doubts, while Marcos Rojo and Diogo Dalot are still getting back to full fitness following injuries.
WATFORD 2-1 Tottenham – Troy Deeney, Craig Cathcart
