Watford vs Man Utd LIVE: Stream, TV channel, team news as Sancho STARTS crucial league clash


Welcome to our live blog of Watford vs Manchester United.

The Hornets ran out 2-0 winners in this fixture the last time the two sides faced off, and a repeat result today could signal the end of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s tenure.

The Norwegian is under immense pressure at Old Trafford after picking up just two wins in seven games in all competitions.

Defeat today, followed by poor results in the upcoming Champions League tie against Villarreal and league meeting with leaders Chelsea could tip Solskjaer even closer to the axe.

Claudio Ranieri meanwhile is looking for just his second victory as Watford boss following three defeats in his opening four games.

The stunning 5-2 victory at Everton are his only points on the board so for, with back-to-back 1-0 defeats to Southampton and Arsenal before the international break.

In Manchester United team news Raphael Varane and Paul Pogba are out long-term, while Edinson Cavani also misses out today.

Scott McTominay, Luke Shaw and Marcus Rashford all didn’t feature for their nations during the international break, but could be in line to feature this afternoon.

Meanwhile for Watford Ranieri will be without Juraj Kucka through suspension.

Francisco Sierralta, Christian Kabasele and Ken Sema also all remained sidelined.

Finally Ozan Tufan faces a late fitness test after suffering a knock while on duty for Turkey.

Kick off for this one is 3pm, with full team news coming up in half an hour!
