Manchester United are expected to make late call-up on the left-back

Watford has no injury or suspension problems and is expected to start with the same starting XI that has started the previous 4 Premier League matches.

Luke Shaw and Marouane Fellaini are doubtful for Manchester United with the former having suffered a concussion on international duty. Ashley Young and Fred are likely to start in place of the injured duo while England international Marcu Rashford is out serving the first of the three-match ban forced upon him, due to his red card against Burnley.

Watford v Manchester United: Predictions

Romelu Lukaku has been on fire during the international breaks and Jose Mourinho will be hoping that the Belgian can bring the tie in his favour and make it their 3rd win of the season while the Hornets strikers will be itching to face a shaky Manchester United defence as they look to make it 5 out of 5.

The Manchester United squad are slightly favourite in this time with the quality of players oozing from the side from Old Trafford while home advantage and their form make Watford an unpredictable opponent

Predicted Score: Watford 1-2 Manchester United
