Watford v Manchester United Betting Tips: Latest odds, team news, preview and predictions

Having built a formidable home record under Gracia, Al Hain-Cole expects the Hornets to at least avoid defeat against Mourinho's unconvincing side

Watford will be hoping to maintain their excellent start to the Premier League season when they welcome Manchester United to Vicarage Road on Saturday.

The Hornets are one of three teams boasting an 100 per cent record after four matches, having beaten Brighton, Burnley, Crystal Palace and Tottenham so far.

Latest Odds

However, having lost 12 of their last 13 league meetings with this opposition, they are 3/1 (4.00) outsiders with William Hill to make it five wins from five in this one.

Under pressure after losing two of their opening four fixtures, Jose Mourinho's side are available at 10/11 (1.91) to get back on track with an impressive win here.

None of the last 15 encounters between this pair have resulted in a draw, but you can get odds of 12/5 (3.40) on them cancelling each other out for the first time since 1986.

Team News

Tom Cleverley, Gerard Deulofeu and Miguel Britos are all doubts for Javi Gracia, who is likely to pick the same team that beat Tottenham last time out.

Marcus Rashford is suspended after receiving a straight red card against Burnley before the international break, although Luke Shaw is available despite sustaining a concussion in England's defeat to Spain.

Impressive Watford

Although few would have backed them to enjoy quite such a strong start to the campaign, Gracia’s men were actually showing positive signs towards the end of last season – particularly at Vicarage Road.

The Spaniard has collected more points in home games than any other manager since taking over in February, overseeing seven victories and just one defeat in 10.

In contrast, the Red Devils have lost four of their nine away league fixtures during that period, and come into this game in unconvincing form after two defeats from three.


All in all, odds of 4/5 (1.80) seem fairly generous on Watford extending their impressive start to the campaign by at least avoiding defeat against an out of sorts Manchester United.
