Manchester United vs Watford - 3/30/19 - English Premier League Soccer Pick, Odds, and Prediction

Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

In the English Premier League, Manchester United will host Watford at Old Trafford.

Manchester United had a costly loss in their last Premier League match as the team was beaten 2-0 by Arsenal. It was a game where Manchester United controlled the majority of the ball and had more shots on target but failed to capitalize. The loss means that Manchester United can’t afford to lose any more points if they wish to remain in the fight for a spot in the Champions League next season. On a positive note, Paul Pogba, Anthony Martial and Romelu Lukaku have been in good form so the Red Devils will be expecting a good result from this match.

On the other side of the coin, Watford were beaten in their previous Premier League match by Manchester City. While the loss was expected, Watford failed to cause any trouble to the Sky Blues which was disappointing. Watford has only 28% of the ball and 2 shots in the entire match. Watford have had a strong season and are currently 8th on the ladder. That being said, the Hornets have struggled against the top 6 teams so that could be a big factor to take into notice for this match.

Watford and Manchester United played each other earlier in the season in a match that the Red Devils won 2-1. Lukaku and Smalling both scored for Manchester United on that occasion. Watford were the home team on that occasion.

As far as this match is concerned, I am going to pick Manchester United to win. Watford have not had a good record against the big teams and that was well proven in their last match where they lost to Manchester City. The Red Devils have been in good form recently and I see them taking all 3 points from this match.
