EPL: Man United vs Watford




Although Martial has been loaned to Sevilla, Manchester United’s firepower is still very strong with the trio of Cristiano Ronaldo, Jesse Lingard and Jadon Sancho. Notably, Cristiano Ronaldo has contributed to 9 goals for the Old Trafford team in the Premier League this season. The past shows that the Red Devils always overwhelmed Watford in confrontations. Specifically, in the last 3 times the two teams met, the home team won 2 matches and did not let the opponent concede a goal in those 2 wins.

Manchester United are also playing quite impressively when they have won both of their last two matches in the English Premier League. After defeating Brighton Hove Albion 2-0, the Red Devils continued to defeat another underdog team, Leeds, with a score of 4-2, thereby continuing to consolidate the 4th position in the current table. However, it should be noted that, both of those victories took place when their opponents were not in good form.

The receptions have indeed brought unconvincing results to teachers and coaches Ralf Rangnick in recent times. Specifically, the Red Devils have only 1 win in the last 3 home matches on all fronts. It is the weak home record that is the main reason why Manchester United, although ranked 4th in the table, is exactly 4 points behind the Top 3 but played more than 1 match.

The start of the season was not bad, but the more Watford played, the more they revealed the weakness of the squad as well as the image of a rookie in England’s No. 1 playground. Indeed, The Hornets have only 1 win in their past 13 matches in all competitions. The only victory was against an underrated club like Aston Villa in the 26th round of the English Premier League.

In particular, in the Premier League, in the last two-thirds of the round, coach Roy Hodgson’s teachers and students were all empty-handed, scoring just 1 goal and conceding 3 goals. On the table up to this 27th round, Watford, although ranked 18th, is only 1 point above the bottom two teams, Burnley and Norwich City, a gap that can be leveled at any time.
