Predicted Starting XI: Manchester United vs Watford FC – Smalling & Martial in

Manchester United take on Watford tomorrow night as the games start coming thick and fast across all competitions. Louis van Gaal’s young side overcame an woeful Arsenal team over the weekend, meaning they’ll head into this one with confidence flowing.

The Dutch manager could also welcome a few key players back from injury, with Matteo Darmian, Chris Smalling and Anthony Martial all set to be involved in some capacity.

It would seem foolish to drop Marcus Rashford based on current form so he simply has to lead the line once again, with Anthony Martial coming back into the team in place of Jesse Lingard.

Chris Smalling’s return also means we’d see a more familiar back line, meaning Michael Carrick can return to the midfield if needs be.

Guillermo Varela must continue despite Matteo Darmian returning, as the young Uruguayan has been outstanding recently.

Check out the full predicted XI here:

De Gea; Varela, Smalling, Blind, Rojo; Schneiderlin, Herrera; Depay, Mata, Martial; Rashford.
