Man Utd vs Watford: TV channel, live stream, team news & prediction

Man Utd entertain Watford in the Premier League as Ralf Rangnick's side look to strengthen their top four credentials.

The Red Devils required a late leveller from Anthony Elanga to avoid defeat to Atletico Madrid in the first leg of their Champions League last 16 tie in midweek, a few days after the teenager came off the bench to finish the scoring in a 4-2 win over Leeds.

Watford, meanwhile, dropped to second bottom of the Premier League when they were humbled 4-1 at home by Crystal Palace, leaving Roy Hodgson's side four points adrift of safety having played more games.

Here's everything you need to know about the game.

Man Utd team news

Rangnick will have to check on the fitness of midfielder Scott McTominay after he missed the Atletico draw through illness.

Striker Edinson Cavani continues to struggle with a groin problem which could keep him sidelined for a little while longer, while Victor Lindelof's brief foray as a right-back will likely come to an end as Diogo Dalot or Aaron Wan-Bissaka will return to the team.

Watford team news

Juraj Kucka and Joao Pedro will continue to be monitored after missing the last few games with knocks, while Peter Etebo and Nicolas N'Koulou will not feature.

Roy Hodgson will also have to make decisions on former United duo Josh King and Tom Cleverley, both of whom were taken off in the disappointing defeat to Palace.

Man Utd vs Watford score prediction

The margin for error in the race for the top four is razor thin, meaning nothing less than three points will be tolerated by the Man Utd faithful.

Watford displayed their attacking quality in the 4-1 triumph over Man Utd back in November and, with Ismaila Sarr back to his blistering best, Hodgson will sense an opportunity to expose the hosts on the break.

However, creating chances has not been a problem for United under Rangnick in recent weeks and their attacking firepower should overwhelm the Hornets.

Prediction: Man Utd 2-0 Watford
