Man United ends Watford's perfect start with 2-1 win in EPL

Man United ends Watford's perfect start with 2-1 win in EPL

United will be looking to win their third game of the season when they travel to Watford on Saturday evening, with the Hornets boasting a ideal record in their four matches so far.

Mourinho has come under pressure in recent weeks following United's disappointing start to the Premier League season which included defeats to Brighton and Tottenham.

Watford created a goal in the 65th minute with Gray granted plenty of space to hit a cutback cross from Abdoulaye Doucoure past De Gea.

Romelu Lukaku and Chris Smalling scored within three minutes of each other in the opening period, with Andre Gray netting in the second half for the Hornets, but they could not maintain their 100 per cent start to the season. "I'm very happy with the spirit, I'm very happy with something that represents for me the spirit of the team - which is a Lukaku sliding tackle after 50 metres running back to help the team".

Two quickfire first-half goals had Mourinho, his staff and his players every bit as delirious as the travelling army of United fans, with the general mood around the camp a far cry from what it was just a few weeks ago.

Mourinho says he felt the need to read off numbers because the media doesn't paint a fair picture of Rashford's role within the squad.

Under Mourinho, however, Rashford's playing time has come into question with some believing the Portuguese is failing in developing the youngster which gained more traction as he scored twice in two games for England over the global break.

United, who are 10th with six points from four matches, will look to end Watford's flawless start to the campaign when they travel to Vicarage Road on Saturday.

The Manchester United manager has not taken any chances with Luke Shaw's fitness so Ashley Young has been drafted into the starting eleven as left-back.

Sanchez next forced a great save out of Foster after a great run down the right flank saw the Chilean lash a shot towards the top of the net, but Foster managed to fling a hand up to tip the ball over.

Sources have told ESPN FC that the 25-year-old, who is under contract until at least 2021, is open to a transfer to Barcelona next summer, although executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward has been firm in his stance that the midfielder is not for sale after refusing to listen to offers from the Spanish club after the World Cup.

Foster then kept out a powerful Pogba drive but United were two up in the 38th minute when Smalling controlled a Fellaini header following a corner, and smashed the ball home.

But like he's done many times previously, David De Gea came to United's rescue with a stunning save in the 94th minute. That goal infused the team and the fans with renewed belief and United suddenly looked nervy.

The clash ended on a sour note for the Red Devils as Nemanja Matic was sent off for a second bookable offence, but his side managed to hold on for victory.
