Watford vs Manchester United - 9/15/18 English Premier League Soccer Pick, Odds, and Prediction

Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

Watford will take on Manchester United at Vicarage Road.

Watford have had an incredible start to the season as the Hornets currently have a perfect record of 4-0-0. Watford had a massive win in their last game as they beat Tottenham 2-1 at home and the team is looking confident and well balanced. Roberto Pereyra and Troy Deeney have been the most influential players for Watford as they have both scored on multiple occasions. That being said, Watford have had 6 different goalscorers this season which is a huge positive for the side since it means they have many different goal scoring options. The early season success has been great for the fans at Vicarage Road as they are getting behind their team really well. The atmosphere at Vicarage Road during the Tottenham vs Watford game was unbelievable and I am expecting a similar reception for the team this weekend.

On the other side of the coin, Manchester United have had a very poor start to the season as they lost against Tottenham at home and lost against Burnley away from home. The Red Devils are 10th on the ladder and things must improve since a club the size of Manchester United needs to be competing for the title. The defense has been the biggest issue for Manchester United as the manager has lost faith in his defenders and is playing midfielders in defense. This caused problems for Manchester United in their last few games and it will interesting to see if things have changed following the international break. Manchester United will need to improve if they wish to beat Watford in this match.

It's never easy to bet against Manchester United but considering how poorly they are playing, I don’t have enough trust in the Red Devils to back them to win. I am going to pick Watford to continue their perfect season by beating another big team at home.
