Watford vs Manchester United Preview

Tuesday evening’s Premier League action from Vicarage Road as Watford take on Manchester United.

Having recently lost three matches in a row the Hornets made it back-to-back wins after thumping Newcastle United by three goals to nil at St James’s Park on Saturday afternoon.

Another win here could see Marco Silva’s side move into the top six ahead of Wednesday night’s fixtures, and move to within a point of Arsenal who begin this round of fixtures in fourth place.

Captain Troy Deeney is ready to return after serving a three match suspension while Sebastian Prodl could make his first start since August having replaced Miguel Britos early in the second half last time out.

Andre Gray is priced at 10.0 (9/1) to get the first goal of the game with Bet 365, with Richarlison available at the same price with Unibet.

The home win is widely available at 5.5 (9/2) with the visitors favourites at 1.73 (8/11) with Bet 365. The draw can be backed at a price of 4.1 (31/10) with a number of firms.

The Red Devils bounced back from their disappointing defeat to FC Basel last Wednesday with a narrow win over Brighton and Hove Albion on Saturday afternoon, but needed an own goal from Lewis Dunk to get them over the line.

A win here would see them, if only temporarily close the gap between themselves and Manchester City, though few would bet against the leaders securing a twelfth straight win when they host Southampton on Wednesday evening.

Romelu Lukaku is free to play after escaping punishment following a clash with Brighton’s Gaetan Bong while Marcos Rojo could make his first league appearance in seven-and-a-half months after featuring in Europe almost a week ago.

Lukaku is 4.33 (10/3) to open the scoring with William Hill with Paul Pogba a 9.0 (8/1) shot with Bet 365.

Eleven of the last twelve meetings between the sides have ended in victory for United though Watford did win last season’s corresponding fixture.

With the hosts rediscovering their form, you may fancy them to open the scoring here and you can back them to do so at 3.0 (2/1) with Bet 365.
