Manchester United’s game against Watford is looking to be a tough one, with Louis van Gaal without any recognised striker in the match day squad. There is a chance for United to sit temporarily top of the league with a win this lunchtime, so he incentive is there.
The teams are in, and United go with an extremely youthful line-up and bench, with Jesse Lingard once again continuing. Marcus Rashford, Andreas Pereira, Paddy McNair and Sean Goss are all on the bench, giving a real inexperienced look to proceedings.
Hopefully United can get an early goal and get the business done early, allowing a few of the younger lads some quality minutes on the pitch if all goes well.
United XI: De Gea; Young, Smalling, Jones, Blind; Schweinsteiger, Schneiderlin; Mata, Herrera, Lingard; Memphis.
Subs: Romero, Rojo, McNair, Darmian, Goss, Pereira, Rashford.
