UEFA 2019 Watford vs Man United Highlights -At the bottom of the table, Watford handed Manchester United a shocking defeat after an extremely poor outing from the reds as they secured a 2-0 victory at their home, giving them a chance to fight back relegation. This was the first win for the Hornets at home after April 2019. It was an excellent way to reward the home fans that continued to pour in their support. It was a howler from David De Gea that started the collapse of the house of cards. De Gea failed to clear a routine save after a set piece from the Hornets which found Ismaila Sarr on his weak foot, making this the first goal under new manager, Nigel Pearson.
UEFA 2019 Watford vs Man United Highlights –The Hornets got another golden opportunity and this time to put the game to bed as Arron Wan Bissaka fouled Sarr inside the box. It was a reckless challenge from the recently signed new defender, Troy Deeny – the top scorer and captain of the club who rose to the occasion with his vast experience. He took the shot right in the middle which was again totally misjudged by the Spanish keeper as he dived to the side.

Manchester United now is on a streak of 13 games without a clean sheet and are not just having defensive problems but offensive as well. Jesse Lingard got a wonderful opportunity to put the visitors in the lead but tried a cheeky chip over Ben Foster with too much power and the ball went over the goal. Mason Greenwood too fancied a shot from the box in the second half after a world-class cross from Paul Pogba. The French midfielder was the only player who looked on top of his game with the other teammates not being on the same wavelength.
UEFA 2019 Watford vs Man United Highlights – De Gea has been receiving a lot of criticism and rightly so has also made the most errors in the Premier League this season. Manchester United have let in 22 goals this season so far and have the worst defensive record. Whenever it looks like things are going to get better for this giant, we are reminded that the new Manchester United is a lot different from what our nostalgic side wants it to be.
