Manchester United vs Watford, live! Score, updates, how to watch, stream link

Arlo White, Graeme Le Saux and Lee Dixon recap the final two fixtures of Matchweek 26: a six-goal thriller at Elland Road and a dogged battle at Molineux.

Manchester United host Watford at Old Trafford on Saturday (watch live, 10am ET on USA Network and online via as the Red Devils look for revenge over the Hornets.


It was the 4-1 hammering at Watford in November which was Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s final game in charge of Manchester United, and since then Ralf Rangnick has arrived as interim head coach and is trying to usher in huge change behind-the-scenes at the club. On the pitch United have become harder to beat and the likes of Paul Pogba, Jadon Sancho and Bruno Fernandes are coming up with key moments in games to keep United in the top four hunt. They did that last weekend in a wild 4-2 win at Leeds, but a disappointing display in midweek somehow yielded a 1-1 draw at Atletico Madrid in the UEFA Champions League last 16 first leg. United are becoming tougher to beat (just one loss in 14 games since Solskjaer was fired) and they’re unbeaten in seven PL games. After this clash they face Manchester City, Tottenham and Liverpool so it’s vital they pick up all three points.

In midweek Watford and Roy Hodgson suffered a massive setback in their battle against relegation. They were hammered 4-1 at home by Crystal Palace to leave themselves in the bottom three and with serious work to do. However, they are a side which is set up well to pick up wins away from home and with Ismaila Sarr, Emmanuel Dennis and Josh King, they have three direct forward who have caused United problems in the past. If Watford can get to half time level, they will take more risks and this could be set up for a smash and grab for the Hornets.

Here’s everything you need to know ahead of Manchester United vs Watford.
