Manchester United are unbeaten in the league since the embarrassinghome defeat to Wolves at the start of the year.

But the Hornets currently hold the bragging rights because Watford got the better of the 13x Premier League winners earlier on this season.

Team news

Scott McTominay missed the midweek trip to Spain due to an illness and the Scotland international continues with that same issue so he will be unavailable for selection.

Edinson Cavani's wait for Premier League action will continue as the Uruguyan is still struggling with a groin injury that has kept him out for the last four matches.

Roy Hodgson has revealed that he has doubts over whether Samuel Kalu can feature for the Hornets having suffered a slight ankle knock.

Peter Etobo and Kwadwo Baah both featured in an U23 game which has helped them to see progress in their recovery period, but this trip has come too soon. It's the same thing for Nicolas Nkoulou

However, the Hertfordshire outfit have been given a major boost because Joao Pedro and Juraj Kucka are in contention to start having both missed out on the Crystal Palace defeat.

In addition to that, Watford forward Josh King seems to have got over the injury he sustained in training last week.
