Manchester United currently sits seventh in the EPL table with 38 points. If they defeat Watford, they will move ahead of Tottenham and Sheffield United. They will also be closer to fourth place, which is their goal to earn a trip to the Champions League next season. The Red Devils are coming off a controversial 2-0 win over rivals Chelsea wherein VAR was heavily involved. But in the end, Anthony Martial gave United the lead with a goal in the 45th minute while Harry Maguire added the second goal in the 66th minute. It should be noted that United have defeated Watford 10 times and drew twice in their last 12 games at Old Trafford.

Watford is in danger of getting relegated as they sit 19th on the table with just 24 points and five wins this season.
