United condemns Watford to first loss

United condemns Watford to first loss

Romelu Lukaku and Chris Smalling got on the scoresheet at Vicarage Road before Andre Gray fired the Hornets back into contention late on.

Smalling proved to the unlikely hero for United, with his goal seven minutes before the break proving to the difference, with Matic quick to talk up the qualities of a defender who was snubbed by England over the summer and has often struggled to win over his detractors.

Jose Mourinho may have drawn attention to himself in Friday's news conference with his Marcus Rashford rant, but his behaviour certainly did not appear to have any negative impact on the pitch.

Watford who are attempting to win their fifth successive Premier League match only have two players out due to injury.

But Mourinho insisted that Pogba has given him no indication that he is unhappy at Old Trafford and that if he or his agent wish to pursue a move, they should tell him directly.

Marouane Fellaini then brought down a corner at the far side of the area before flicking it toward Smalling, who controlled it with his chest and volleyed home from close range. "But we had the experience also here last season where they don't give up and when the game is open they believe".

"He's playing simple and well".




United will begin their 2018-19 Champions League group-stage campaign with a clash against Swiss outfit Young Boys on Wednesday night.

But from the first whistle United looked like the team in form, dominating possession and territory early on even if they seemed to have little threat in the final third as the home side defended compactly and left the Reds depending largely on crosses from wide positions.

"If I was still in that dressing room giving personal advice it would be, 'Paul, it's obvious you want to play somewhere else but be professional. Victor [Lindelof] and Marouane [Fellaini] were important, matches in two against two, because Burnley and Watford, two strikers, and two powerful strikers, can hold the ball, in the air, they are physical, they are clever, these three guys were important for us again".

"If we played the second half the way we did the last part of the first half we would be in this moment with a completely different result".

"I think in the second half we made a step forward and we were able to get out and try to create more chances, with more possession and we competed better", he said. Let us know in the comment section below.

He clearly has the natural talent to become a top player but his dedication to football must improve if Mourinho is to trust him fully as a Manchester United player.
