The reserve fixture saw an end to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s managerial spell at the club, with Watford thrashing us 4-1 at Vicarage Road. Captain Harry Maguire picked up two yellow cards in a matter of minutes and Watford scored two injury time goals to compound our misery.

Manchester United are in better shape now, coming in today’s game on the back of a 4-2 win over Leeds and important draw away to Atletico Madrid.

Watford have won just one of their last 14 games in all competitions, losing 11, so Ralf Rangnick will be keen to keep our momentum going against a team that is struggling.
