Manchester United faces Watford at the Old Trafford in a match from the 27th round of the Premier League
Three days after their 1-1 draw against Club Brugge in Europa League, Manchester United faces Watford at the Old Trafford in a match from the 27th round of the Premier League. Let’s talk about it in our value English Premier League predictions.
Winning Europa League is an option for a return to the Champions League, but Manchester United will also chase a finish in the Top 5 of the Premier League. At this point the Red Devils are 7th in the league with 38 points, but being just two points behind the 5th Tottenham Hotspur, entering the Top 5 is certainly a reachable goal. Of course, it entirely depends on the consistency Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and his players will show.
On Monday Manchester United made a solid performance at the Stamford Bridge, beating Chelsea for a third time this season. Anthony Martial opened the score for United, while the club’s captain Harry Maguire decided the game with a second goal.
On Thursday Manchester United faced Club Brugge in a first game from the 1/16-finals of Europa League. Just as we expected, Solskjaer rotated his lineup. The manager gave a chance to players like Sergio Romero, Diogo Dalot, Brandon Williams and Jesse Lingard. It was Anthony Martial who scored against the Belgian team.
Watford were flying under their new manager Nigel Pearson, but it seems the Hornets’ honeymoon is over now. Watford won just two points in their last four games, which is the reason why the club is back to the relegation zone now. In their last match the Hornets won a point during the visit to Brighton & Hove Albion at the American Express.
In these value English Premier League predictions we can say that we fancy Manchester United to take the win against Watford. The Red Devils made a strong performance against Chelsea on Monday and it seems they are in a strong shape right now.
