There’s a very simple reason why the Red Devils sit eight points behind arch-rivals Manchester City at this stage of the season, their form away from Old Trafford has been pretty underwhelming. Jose Mourinho’s men have performed well in front of their home fans but they have struggled on their travels with a mere two wins from their last six away matches. Indeed their last Premier League win on the road was at Southampton in late September and Mourinho will be anxious to sort out this apparent travel sickness and narrow the gap on a Man City side which don’t look set to drop points any time soon.

Watford shocked Manchester United with a 3-1 win at Vicarage Road in 2016/17, however that was the Hornets’ first win over United in three decades and we don’t really expect a repeat of this result. Indeed the Red Devils have triumphed in all-but-one of their last thirteen games against Watford and we believe that it will be business as usual when the sides meet on Tuesday evening.

The Hornets have enjoyed a few surprise results this season, most notably their 3-3 draw with Liverpool and 2-1 win over Arsenal last month. They will have been boosted by their 3-0 thrashing of Newcastle United at St James’ Park last time out, however we don’t fancy their chances against a United outfit which will be desperate to get back to winning ways away from home.

United have drawn a number of blanks this season but generally they have been having few problems finding the net and with the Hornets conceding eleven on home soil this season, we expect a hefty goal-count on Tuesday evening. Indeed Watford have scored in all-but-two of their last nine games and as such, we’ll be going for a United win and over 2.5 goals with the bookmakers going 6/4 on this outcome.
