Roles have been reversed when these two sides meet at 17:30 local time on Saturday. One side is sat in mid-table with two wins from four, and the other side are sat in third place with a 100% winning record to start the season. Incredibly, the former is Manchester United, who have eased some pressure by winning at Burnley, and the latter is Watford who defeated Tottenham Hotspur last time out.

Home Team; Watford

betting on footballThe international break would have come at the wrong time for Watford, and will hope their momentum will not be affected when they host Manchester United this weekend. Prior to the two week international break, they have shocked all the onlookers as they have defeated Brighton, Burnley, Crystal Palace and Tottenham to be in the Champions League places at the start of September.

There is still a long way to go of course, and even the most ardent Watford fan will not think that this type of form will continue, but following last season’s demise in the second half of the season, losing their star player Richarlison, and many fans may have been fearing their side could be in for a relegation battle.

That doesn’t seem to be the case though, and a win here could put them to the top of the table temporarily, and a staggering 9 points above their opponents, Manchester United.

Away Team: Manchester United

manchester united betting on footballFollowing the 3-0 home defeat to Tottenham Hotspur a couple of weeks ago, it seemed the whole world was laughing at Jose Mourinho and Manchester United.

A ‘typical third season meltdown for Mourinho’ were the headlines, and with poor business in the summer by not strengthening key areas, which were being highlighted in their defeats, it seems that they are miles away from competing for the title. However, a comfortable victory over Burnley, with Lukaku getting the goals and Mourinho getting an excellent reception from the away fans, shows it’s not all doom and gloom just yet.

Due to the massive pressure at Manchester United, the team will know that more points cannot be dropped this weekend if they are to be taken seriously as potential challengers. Their star performer, Luke Shaw, endured a bad head injury on international duty, and is unlikely to feature for Manchester United, with former Watford player Ashley Young, likely to take his place.

Head to Head

Premier League bettingManchester United may feel better about this fixture when looking at their previous encounters. Unfortunately for them, it’s not at Old Trafford where Manchester United have won every encounter between the two there since the 1980’s. In fact, Watford have only beaten Manchester United once since 1986, and that was two seasons ago. Mourinho had only been in charge for a few months, but the match finished a torrid week for Manchester United.

With 7 seven days, they had lost to Manchester City, Feyenoord and then Watford for the first time in 30 years. In the most occurrence of this corresponding fixture, Manchester United won an entertaining match 4-2. Manchester United had led 3-0 at half time, only for Watford to stage a comeback before Jesse Lingard score a fantastic solo goal.

Predictions and Betting Tips Watford vs Manchester United

Do you go with history or form? That’s the question. If you feel that form is important, then Watford to win at 3/1 are very good odds. For an away win, it is at 10/11. A draw between the two is at 5/2, and now would be a perfect time to tell you that the two sides have not drawn to each other since 1986! You would be crazy to tip a draw then, right? Nope. I feel that a draw is a likely scenario, and a 2-2 draw is at 14/1.

If Watford can defeat Tottenham, then there is no reason they can replicate that performance and at least get a point from Manchester United. Last few seasons in this fixture there have been 4 or more goals in, and if you feel that it will happen again, you can get over 3.5 goals at a generous 5/2. With Manchester United’s defence, and Watford’s free flowing football, we can certainly hope for some goals!
