If you're not yet a subscriber to BT Sport - the only place showing live Premier League, Champions League, Europa League and FA Cup football all season long - the good news is that it could hardly be easier to join us. "Marcus [Rashford] and [Anthony] Martial, [are] without the tactical knowledge that another player has to close the spaces in between the full-back and winger so, even with Paul, we were a little bit in trouble".

United were poor in their 3-1 defeat at Vicarage Road last season, and did not exactly set the world alight against Brighton on Saturday afternoon.

Younes Kaboul, Isaac Success, Nathaniel Chalobah and former Red Craig Cathcart have all been sidelined of late, but Kiko Feminia proved his fitness at Newcastle, in an impressive 3-0 win for Marco Silva's men.

No Premier League team has performed better than United on home soil during the 2017-18 campaign, but Jose Mourinho's side only have the sixth-best away record at this stage of the season.

Watford take on Manchester United at Vicarage Road on Tuesday night (8pm) with both teams in fine form.

A year on, a third straight away defeat for Mourinho's men could severely undermine any hope of sustaining a challenge to their runaway city rivals for the title.

United come into the game on the back of an unconvincing 1-0 win against Brighton & Hove Albion over the weekend at the Old Trafford.

Manchester United are undefeated in 34 of their last 38 matches (Premier League). They haven't lost three successive league away games since January 1996.

Having climbed to eighth in the Premier League standings following back to back wins over West Ham United and Newcastle United, Watford will be looking to further improve their league position when facing Manchester United.

The last Watford goalkeeper to keep a clean sheet against United was Tony Coton during a 1-0 victory for the Hornets in September 1986.

Tom Cleverley and Will Hughes will again look to provide the invention from central midfield, while Richarlison - who has five goals and three assists in the league this season - should be given a free role once again. Only 10 players have scored more goals than this in their opening 200 appearances in the competition, with Alan Shearer (145) leading the way.
