Manchester United's Ashley Young predicting tough test on return to Watford

As a result, Tuesday's trip to Watford is just the latest game which feels like a must-win occasion for Jose Mourinho's side.

Leading 3 - 0 at half-time, thanks to a delicious brace from Ashley Young and yet another from in-form Anthony Martial, fans smelled a drubbing for the home side and were quick to gloat online.

The versatile wing-back was deployed on the left flank for their trip to Vicarage Road.

As Mourinho looks to improve the firepower within his squad, the report claims that he is targeting Atletico Madrid's Antoine Griezmann, Real Madrid's Gareth Bale and Arsenal playmaker Mesut Ozil to improve the teams creativity and goalscoring options. The Younes Kaboul (hamstring), Craig Cathcart (knee), Tommie Hoban (ACL), Isaac Success and Nathaniel Chalobah (both knee) are all on the sidelines and set to miss the tie.

Watford have lost 12 of their last 13 games against Manchester United in all competitions, winning the other in the Premier League in this exact fixture last season (3-1).

Watford, meanwhile, has won its last two matches and is up to eighth place in the Premier League, with in-demand manager Marcos Silva steering one of the surprise packages of the Premier League season thus far.

United slowly grew into the game, although they struggled to link up with Romelu Lukaku.

Watford head coach Marco Silva also sent on midfielder Andre Carrillo, shifting to a back four, and his side began to look more unsafe, Richarlison heading wide from another Femenia cross.

Richarlison has been involved in seven goals in his last eight Premier League appearances for Watford (four goals, three assists).

But neither Fellaini or Mkhitaryan will be involved at Vicarage Road after they failed to take the train down to Hertfordshire with the rest of the side. Nonetheless, a victory could hardly be easy, even though they could offer much resistance, making it hard for the opposition to snatch away three significant points.
