Watford 0-0 Manchester United

Watford 0-0 Manchester United

The match at Vicarage Road kicks off at 20:00GMT on Tuesday, with live coverage in the United Kingdom on BT Sport 1 beginning at 19:15.

Ashley Young grabbed his first league goals of the season to give Manchester United a commanding lead over Watford in their Premier League clash this evening - and it seems no one was more surprised than United boss Jose Mourinho. United have an important run of fixtures in the next two weeks with a Premier League showdown at Arsenal coming Saturday.

Watford made it a nervy finish for the Red Devils at the death after second-half goals from Troy Deeney and Abdoulaye Doucoure.

United suffered an apparent injury blow as Nemanja Matic limped off the pitch in the 55th minute and was replaced by Ander Herrera.

An in-form Watford could secure their third consecutive Premier League victory with a win tonight - a feat they have managed once before in December 2015.

But it was Young's second which had everyone, including Mourinho, left in disbelief.

A foul on Paul Pogba by Doucoure gave United a free-kick 25 yards from goal in a central position and Young whipped a attractive effort into the top-left corner.

Had it not been for Gomes it would have been 4-0 by half-time, the Brazilian getting down to save from Lukaku and then reacting extraordinarily quickly to palm Lingard's follow-up over the bar.

The Hornets ended the half on a high as Femenia burst forward and clipped a cross towards Richarlison, who headed against David De Gea's crossbar.

He whistled another shot inches wide before Watford went up the other end to win a penalty as Rojo brought down substitute Roberto Pereyra, Deeney converting having only just come off the bench himself.

"Against Watford I was very upset with Watford's first goal after some guy sent (Anthony) Martial to the hospital and the referee let it go", Mourinho said.

It should have been even worse for Watford at the break, but Gomes saved well from Lukaku before jumping to his feet to make an even better stop from Lingard's follow-up effort.
