Watford hosts Manchester United
Watford hosts Manchester United at the Vicarage Road in a game from the 12th round of the Premier League. We will have a good look at this match in our football prediction betting tips today. Let’s get to work!
Watford continue to struggle even after the change of managers and the arrival of the Premier League winner Claudio Ranieri. The Hornets suffered four defeats in their last five games and only won once – against Everton. At this moment they are 17th in the standings and just two points ahead of the 18th Burnley. They need to improve and they need to do it fast!
Before the international break Watford suffered a 7th loss for the season. Ranieri’s boys faced Arsenal at the Emirates and they didn’t play a bad game, but still suffered a 0-1 defeat. Emile Smith Rowe scored the winning goal in the 56th minute. Watford finished the game with 10 men as well because Kucka got sent off in the second half. He won’t be available against United.
Manchester United barely have any room for mistakes now. The Red Devils are 6th in the standings with 17 points and they are 9 points behind the leader Chelsea. United started the season with the ambition to win the title, but right now they are getting behind.
Three losses in the last four games in the league – that’s not something which makes the manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer happy. Before the break the Red Devils lost again – for a 4th time this season. Manchester United faced Manchester City in the big local derby, but suffered a 0-2 defeat at the Old Trafford. Solskjaer took the decision to start Jadon Sancho and Marcus Rashford from the bench and they appeared in the second half, but it still didn’t help the hosts.
That’s the football prediction betting tips today for the Premier League clash between Watford and Manchester United. Are the Red Devils going to finally improve? Let’s see.
