Watford vs Manchester United Match Preview
Watford will look to continue their amazing run in the Premier League when they host Manchester United on Tuesday. This Watford vs Manchester United fixture would be played at the Vicarage Road Stadium on Tuesday, November 28, so read the betting preview, betting tips and predictions.
Watford are one of the surprise packages of the season as manager Marco Silva guided them to another stunning 3-0 win in the weekend at Newcastle United. After 13 games, the Hornets are eighth in the table with 21 points (W6, D3, L4). Their tally is just four points shy of Arsenal in the fourth position – the final qualification position for Champions League. The worry for Silva though is their home form which hasn’t been up to the mark. In six home games, Watford has a mixed record (W2, D2, L2 and 11 goals conceded) casting doubts over their aspirations. However, the Hornets have beaten Arsenal at home and drew with Liverpool already, and would be looking for another scalp in United.
Manchester United won 1-0 against Brighton & Hove Albion to remain the closest competitors to Manchester City. But, they are still eight points behind the leaders with 29 points from 13 games (W9, D2, L2). Interestingly, both their losses have come away from home – at Chelsea and Huddersfield. Defensively too, they struggle away from home and have managed just three clean sheets. But, manager Jose Mourinho knows that anything less than a win over Watford will sound death knell to his side’s already slim Premier League hopes. With such an attacking talent at its disposal, United pose a bigger threat going forward and have scored the second-most goals in the league (28) and conceded the least (6). The fact remains, though, that the Red Devils have a bigger need to pick up three points in this Watford vs Manchester United fixture.

Watford vs Manchester United Predictions
United’s only losses of the season came on their trips while Watford’s home form is iffy. However, the Hornets seem to have brushed aside their recent slump which was attributed largely to Silva’s continuous links with the exit door. This should be a fascinating encounter and do not be surprised if the Hornets end up picking points in this Watford vs Manchester United fixture. We are expecting over 2.5 goals in this game.
