Ashley Young Starts - Manchester United Team vs Watford Confirmed

The Red Devils returned from the worldwide break with a testing trip to Vicarage Road to face a Hornets side who had a 100 per-cent win record.

"I'm very happy with the points", he said.

Manchester United will be aiming to be one of the main contenders for the Premier League title this season as they bid to try and bounce back from their trophyless campaign last term.

Having impressed against Burnley last time out and put in great showings for Spain at the Nations Cup during the worldwide break, it's safe to say that De Gea is back to his best and will be looking to prevent Watford from adding to their tally of 9 goals scored so far this season.

But two goals in three first-half minutes from in-form Romelu Lukaku and Chris Smalling gave them valuable breathing space at half-time and ultimately paved the way to a victory that ended Watford's flawless record.

"I am very happy with something that represents for me the spirit of the team, which is [shown by] Lukaku's sliding tackle after 50 metres running back to help the team".

"But Marouane is giving us more than that". Fellaini is also infuriatingly effective at his best, as Watford found out to their cost in the first half especially.

Considering everything Mourinho has said in the past about his own players, that is a compliment.

"Against Brighton we didn't deserve to win that match, but against Tottenham I think we did deserve to win it".

Sarri Concedes Chelsea Not Title Contenders This Season
In one moment of the season, everybody was saying it was the worst for Chelsea in the last 10 years. "It's very hard . The gap last season was 30 points so I think to go above 30 points in one season is very, very hard .

De Gea will have busier days than this, of course, though his contribution at Vicarage Road was still significant.

Former Watford player Ashley Young came in at left-back to replace Luke Shaw, who suffered a head injury while on England duty last week.

Sanchez carved out a chance of his own after 30 minutes, but Watford shot-stopper Ben Foster was well positioned to keep out the Chilean's powerful effort.

Mourinho was in a bullish mood when talking about Rashford, however, following criticism the United boss has copped over the England star's playing time at the club.

Sources have told ESPN FC that the 25-year-old, who is under contract until at least 2021, is open to a transfer to Barcelona next summer, although executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward has been firm in his stance that the midfielder is not for sale after refusing to listen to offers from the Spanish club after the World Cup.

That is what United centre backs Chris Smalling and Victor Lindelof had on Saturday.

United began to look a bit complacent and Watford were quick to punish them as Doucoure made a great cutback from the left flank and Gray made no mistake, sweeping home past De Gea.

"The beginning of the second half we let the game go down in intensity and stopped being aggressive".

Unfortunately for Watford, that goal was not the start of a famous turnaround, and United clung on to a second consecutive victory after Matic received a second caution, De Gea denying Christian Kabasele from the resulting free-kick.
