Manchester United vs Watford Preview

Image result for manchester united vs watford



It is the final game of the season. In seasons past, Manchester United would go into the final day needing something. But thankfully, we have already cemented second place, due to our goalless draw against West Ham on Thursday.

It wasn’t the most entertaining of games, but the pressure is now off. The game against Watford is a now a free hit. It is a chance for players to show their true worth. It is their chance to show Mourinho how much they want to be at the club next season. This will be every player’s make or break chance, and could be their final game in a Manchester United shirt.

The form guide going into the game isn’t the best for Manchester United, having won just three of their last six games. Having struggled to beat teams in the lower half of the Premier League. Those being West Brom, Brighton, and West Ham.

That has me slightly nervous, going into our game against Watford. I say that, because of the predicted line -ups that come out yesterday. Watford, despite being safe, and having nothing to play for, are predicted to field the strongest side they have available.

They have high quality players in their ranks. The likes of Doucoure, Richarlison, Pereyra, Hughes, Deulofeu, and Deeney. All players who can cause damage, and would give any defence in the world a lot of problems.

But the good news for all Manchester United fans, is that that the club has only lost two of their last eleven home games. Watford haven’t scored in their last seven away games. And have lost ten of their last eleven away games.

There are no guarantees in Football. Who’s to say that Watford will continue their bad away form? They could go to Old Trafford and give Manchester United a tough game. Which is what i think they will do. They have nothing to lose.

Manchester United should not take Watford lightly. They should use this game to finish this season on a positive note, and like i said above, show Mourinho how much they want to be at the club next season. And not only that, but show much they want to start against Chelsea in the F.A Cup final, on the 19th of May. The game against Watford, is a very important game.

Fellaini and Lukaku miss out due to injury. For Watford, Chalobah is available, after missing the last eight months through injury. Capoue will miss the trip to Old Trafford, because of unspecified personal reasons. Femenia, Britos, and Carillo are doubts.

Possible Lineups

Manchester United
(4-3-3)
Romero
Darmian, Jones, Bailly, Blind
Carrick, Matic, Pogba
Mata, Rashford, Martial

Watford
(4-1-4-1)
Karnezis
Holebas, Kabasele, Cathcart, Janmaat
Doucoure
Richarlison, Pereyra, Hughes, Deuloeu
Deeney

My prediction: Manchester United 2 Watford 1
