Manchester United have had a difficult few weeks and they will look to bounce back with a win against Watford in the Premier League this Saturday.

Manchester United are under immense pressure after their recent performances against the likes of Liverpool and Manchester City.

Watford are 17th in the league table and they will be fighting for their survival this season. The Hornets have struggled in recent weeks and it remains to be seen whether they can pull of a morale-boosting win here.
