Watford vs Manchester United prediction: How will Premier League match play out today?

Manchester United can take full advantage of Chelsea and Tottenham’s clash on Sunday by putting themselves firmly in the top-four mix in their trip to Watford.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side travel to Vicarage Road four points off the top four and down in eighth place, but depending on how results elsewhere go on Sunday they could find themselves just a point off the Champions League places.

They take on a Watford side who remain rooted to the bottom of the Premier League table in what is Nigel Pearson’s first game in charge of Watford at home, with nine points between the Hornets and relegation safety.
