Manchester United take on Watford FC today as they look to return to winning ways.

Jose Mourinho’s team have suffered back-to-back defeats at the hands of Manchester City and Feyenoord over the past seven days.

The Portuguese tactician has decided to give 19-year-old Marcus Rashford his first Premier League start of the season following his impressive display against rivals City last weekend.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Wayne Rooney have also returned to the starting lineup after being rested for the mid-week Europa league clash.

Watford recorded their first win of the season against West Ham last weekend. However, Walter Mazzarri’s side have lost their last six matches against the United and have also conceded 16 goals in the last 6 meetings with the Red Devils.
