Confirmed Teams: Watford vs Manchester United

by Sam Peoples

Man United Starting XI vs Watford: De Gea, Young, Smalling, Jones, Blind, Schweinsteiger, Schneiderlin, Mata, Herrera, Lingard, Memphis

Subs: Romero, Rojo, McNair, Darmian, Goss, Pereira, Rashford.

Manchester United have made plenty of changes for today’s trip to Watford and a lot of them have been enforced through injuries.

Memphis Depay starts up front for United with Jesse Lingard, Ander Herrera and Juan Mata in behind him. He hasn’t really hit top form in the Premier League so far this season, so this is a big opportunity for him to impress.

There are also changes in defence which see Daley Blind pushed into the left-back role and Ashley Young keeps his spot at right-back, presumably because van Gaal wants to play him against his former team Watford.

Without a striker on the pitch, United’s clear problem today is in attack but even with Anthony Martial and Wayne Rooney we weren’t exactly firing on all cylinders.

Kick-off is 12.45pm. Live on BT Sport.
