United hold on to end Watford’s winning run

Luke Shaw

Having impressed against Burnley last time out and put in great showings for Spain at the Nations Cup during the global break, it's safe to say that De Gea is back to his best and will be looking to prevent Watford from adding to their tally of 9 goals scored so far this season.

Lukaku put Manchester United ahead in the 35th minute before a great finish from Chris Smalling gave the visiting side a 2-0 advantage in the first half. The reply came from Andre Gray.

Manchester United are flat-out refusing to sell French forward Anthony Martial despite Jose Mourinho being less-than-convinced about the inconsistent wide man. Mourinho has played Martial for just 60 minutes so far this season and his only start was in that miserable 3-2 defeat to Brighton last month.

"So I'm going to do something, not for you, but the United fans, and I think I hold myself to the United fans and so for them I am going to spend two mins with you".

United were unsafe on counter-attacks though as Gracia's men left themselves exposed at the back while in an all out attack.

United scored twice in three first-half minutes as Belgium striker Lukaku diverted Ashley Young's cross in via his chest before Chris Smalling fired home Marouane Fellaini's knock-down.

Fellaini looked to have the ball under control but the Belgian somehow lost the ball with a poor touch and it landed for Deeney, who hammered a wonderful strike from the top of the area, but De Gea leaped out to make the fantastic save to his from scoring.

The visitors thought they had taken the lead at the midway point of the first half but Alexis Sanchez was flagged offside as he controlled and finished Matic's cross.

He also said that the Russian armed forces will be further boosetd, supplied with weapons and equipment of latest generations. Putin further stressed that he highly assessed the performance of the Russian army and navy in the Vostok-2018 drills.

Seahawks will sign ex-Browns LB Mychal Kendricks
Per Schefter, his sentencing has now been pushed back to January, leaving Kendricks available for the regular season. He was immediately released from Cleveland, where he had signed a one-year contract in the offseason.

- Lukaku has scored three goals and assisted two in his six league meetings with Watford.

Good movement from United allowed Paul Pogba to cut back and hit a left-footed shot from atop the 18, but Ben Foster stooped to collect the ball.

He then proceeded to rattle off a long list of statistics, breaking down all the matches and minutes Rashford has played over two seasons under the Portuguese.

Mourinho also joked that he will still be criticised for not starting Rashford even though the forward is suspended for Saturday's game against Watford.

The hosts responded well after the interval and halved the arrears as Gray was left free in the middle of goal to turn home Abdoulaye Doucoure's low cross with 25 minutes remaining.

The result handed United back-to-back wins for the first time this season, but it would not have been possible without De Gea's last-gasp stop.

Though United were less solid in the second half and Watford had much more luck in attack, Fellaini was still the man roaring out of the box to clear loose balls and hooking away Jose Holebas' lethal in-swinging corners.
