Marcos Rojo and Jesse Lingard have been recalled to the Manchester United starting XI for their clash with Watford but there is still no start for the returning Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Juan Mata and Marcus Rashford have made way in the two changes made by Jose Mourinho for Tuesday's crucial clash at Vicarage Road, with Rojo making his second appearance since ACL surgery and Lingard stepping up for only his second league start all season.
