Early action from the Premier League on Saturday will see Manchester United travel to Vicarage Road to take on Watford. With Manchester United striker Anthony Martial likely to miss the game after suffering a foot injury on International Duty , this will be a test of United's strength in depth. Wayne Rooney will again lead the line for United having scored again for England midweek the captain is in fine form and Manchester United have been very strong of late. With a supremly talented midfield Mata, Schniederlein, Schweinsteiger, Depay and Carrick there is enough attacking prowess here to get at any defence. Louis Van Gaal's mindset is to not concede and to win the games based on a quick passing game then, as he perfected with Holland before the last World Cup, while the process is slow it is definitely working and Manchester United are better for it. This is a work in progress and is far from finished but United look likely to challenge for the title the way they are playing right now.
Watford come into this game off the back of a great win over West Ham. This is a team that definitely is tough to beat, very solid defensively Sanchez Flores team is going to be tough to break down and with Ighalo and Deeney up front they have players that can take chances they create. Watford are one of the promoted teams but have been better than both of the other teams that came up and look likely to stay in the league as their solid core makes them difficult to break down. Capoue, Behrami are tough tackling no nonsense midfielders and they will protect their back four and break up United's passing attack.
Huge game here for United and they will need to win games like this if they are going to compete for the Premier League title. This is a tough game though and Watford will definitely be up for it in front of a passionate home crowd. I think though Manchester United will just about eek out the victory and at this price they are worth taking in this spot
