Manchester United vs Watford Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Manchester United failed to find a way past West Ham’s Adrian as the club could only muster a goalless draw at the London Stadium. United had several opportunities in the game – especially through Alexis Sanchez and Jesse Lingard. However, goalkeeper Adrian was up to the task whenever he was called upon. Watford, meanwhile, broke a run of seven winless matches by getting a 2-1 home victory over Newcastle United. Roberto Pereyra and Andre Gray provided a completely justifiable two-goal lead for Watford inside 28th minute. Even though Newcastle pulled a goal back in the second half through Ayoze Perez, Watford held on for a victory.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Even though Manchester United will rest a couple of key players for the game, the Red Devils should have more than enough quality to get past a Watford outfit that is missing a lot of players. Watford have also lost the four consecutive games at Old Trafford – failing to score in the last three. The Hornets have also been quite poor in away matches with no goals in the last seven on the road. It looks highly unlikely that the club will end an unwanted record, as United have the best defensive record at home this season. I would back a clean sheet for Manchester United.

Since February, Manchester United have managed more than 2.5 goals in a game only twice. They are up against a Watford outfit that has been reasonably good at the back. Furthermore, the game will carry an end-of-season atmosphere. The best option is to opt for under 2.5 goals in the game.

Manchester United clean sheet – 6/5

Total goals under 2.5 – 27/20

Manchester United saw over 1.5 goals in 9 out of their last 10 games played

Manchester United Preview

United are winless in the last two games and the team has also been unable to score a goal in this run. However, it is not down to a lack of chances against West Ham. Jose Mourinho is more likely to rest his important players for this final league match of the campaign, as the Red Devils have the FA Cup final coming up against Chelsea. Even though Mourinho has claimed that United should not be happy with a second place finish, it happens to be the best finish for the team since Sir Alex Ferguson left the club in 2013.

Manchester United Team News

Jose Mourinho will be without Marouane Fellaini (muscle) and Romelu Lukaku (ankle) for the game.

Watford Preview

Watford are likely to come in with a second string team, as Garcia has struggled with plenty of injuries and absentees over the last couple of weeks. Still, the manager has received the plaudits for the recent performances from the Hornets – like in the game against Newcastle. Watford have achieved a safety with great comfort this season and anything that comes along in the final game of the campaign is only a bonus.

Watford Team News

Manager Javi Garcia still has a huge amount of players on the treatment table. Sebastian Prodl (stomach), Etienne Capoue (personal reasons), Andre Carrillo (groin), Younes Kaboul (broken foot), Kiko, Miguel Britos, Tommy Hoban (cruciate ligament), Tom Cleverley (hamstring), and Stefano Okaka (thigh) will be unavailable for this game.
