Man Utd hold on to inflict first defeat on Watford

The 20-year-old showed his potential with two good displays against Spain and Switzerland

Beating Burnley away before the worldwide break was one thing, but Watford were flying after recording four wins in their opening four Premier League games.

Watford threatened to come back into the game as Andre Gray slotted one past De Gea in the 65th minute.

Jacob was at Vicarage Road to see the game!

United will begin their 2018-19 Champions League group-stage campaign with a clash against Swiss outfit Young Boys on Wednesday night. He doesn't look at home on the right wing.

Fellaini helps Jose weather the storm and steady the ship.

Mourinho also joked that he will still be criticised for not starting Rashford even though the forward is suspended for Saturday's game against Watford.

"Then we go to two matches away, hard matches". However, it wasn't Pogba, Lukaku or Sanchez who stole the show.

However, while Belgium midfielder Fellaini was involved in both goals, it was a Frenchman who was United's heartbeat.

Ms Adeosun was appointed as finance minister by President Muhammadu Buhari in 2015. Finance Minister, Kemi Adeosun , has reportedly resigned.

Their central midfield pairing of Doucoure and Etienne Capoue were overrun by United's midfield three in the first half, which left Deeney and Gray starved of service. Subs: Femenia 6, Masina n/a, Success n/a. Subs: Martial 6, McTominay n/a.

On the 27th minute Manchester United knocked the ball around the edge of the Burnley box with none of their defenders engaging the man with possession.

Mourinho has gone from a man trying to talk up a 3-0 home defeat to a manager looking entirely satisfied with what he is witnessing from his side.

His replacement, former Watford winger Ashley Young, scored twice in a United victory here last season and played his part again.

Buoyant United then almost grabbed a third but Foster saved well from Pogba as Watford kept the score at 2-0 at the break.

Jose Mourinho's side were two up at half-time thanks to goals from Romelu Lukaku and Chris Smalling.

However, United were not made to pay for those missed chances, as their backline stood firm to close out a hard-earned win and three points.

And, while Hornets boss Javi Gracia named an unchanged team for the fifth time, Mourinho opted against playing Luke Shaw - the left-back rested completely after suffering concussion when playing for England. Matic receives his second yellow for barging into Hughes on the right. The delivery was flawless and Kabasele was there to meet it, but a fantastic save from De Gea ensured that the Red Devils bagged all three points. In fact, scoring directly from a freekick against the Red Devils is a whole different ball game as players like Nemanja Matic, Marouane Fellaini, Paul Pogba and Romelu Lukaku form the wall.
