Manchester United will be hoping to maintain the pressure on leaders Manchester City when they travel to Vicarage Road to take on Watford for Tuesday’s Premier League clash.

With their neighbours eight points clear at the top and seemingly running away with the title, the Red Devils can be backed at 4/6 (1.67) to remain at least within touching distance by coming out on top here.

However, Marco Silva’s men are in impressive form themselves after winning their last two matches in convincing fashion, and are on offer at 17/4 (5.25) to make it three in a row with their most memorable victory yet.

None of the last 13 encounters between these sides have resulted in draws, but you can get odds of 14/5 (3.80) on them cancelling each other out on this occasion.

Although already struggling to keep up with their local rivals at the head of the table, it is fair to say that Jose Mourinho’s team would be completely out of any title race if their home form matched their performances on the road.

While they have claimed maximum points in all seven of their fixtures at Old Trafford so far this campaign, the team in second place have only won once in the last five away from home.

Having lost their last two in a row on their travels, the guests may be feeling rather apprehensive about returning to a ground where they crashed to a shock 3-1 defeat last season.

Indeed, the Hornets have already taken four points off Liverpool and Arsenal in front of their own fans this campaign, and will fancy their chances of causing another upset after a couple of strong recent performances.

With this in mind, odds of 11/10 (2.10) could be well worth backing on Watford adding to United’s away day woes by earning at least a point in this one.
