Manchester United Face Tough Trip to Watford on Tuesday Night

Man United are the favourites to get a win away from home at the price of 8/13.

UNITED are involved in Premier League midweek action when they travel to take on Watford.

Pep Guardiola's City have dropped just two points in 13 matches this season, scoring a sensational 42 goals in the process.

Marco Silva is in a confident mood ahead of Manchester United's visit on Tuesday, insisting Watford will compete to win against the high-flying Red Devils.

If seeing off Brighton at home was the hardest match of United's season how will Jose Mourinho's side fare at a ground where they were humbled 3-1 last season?

United were poor in their 3-1 defeat at Vicarage Road last season, and did not exactly set the world alight against Brighton on Saturday afternoon.

Having climbed to eighth in the Premier League standings following back to back wins over West Ham United and Newcastle United, Watford will be looking to further improve their league position when facing Manchester United. They can not afford to lose any more ground at least until they face the league-leaders themselves at home in two weeks' time.

The defeat in Switzerland made it three away defeats in four for United, whose last two Premier League trips have seen it lose to Huddersfield Town andChelsea. Manager Jose Mourinho will be hoping that his side put on a much better showing against the Hornets and keep pace with the Premier League leaders, Manchester City.

All three goals came down the left flank with Will Hughes converting Marin Zeegelaar's 19th-minute cross and DeAndre Yedlin deflecting home another before the break before Andre Gray, finished from close range from Richarlison's ball in.

The last Watford goalkeeper to keep a clean sheet against United was Tony Coton during a 1-0 victory for the Hornets in September 1986. Only 10 players have scored more goals than this in their opening 200 appearances in the competition, with Alan Shearer (145) leading the way.
