Tip: 1 AH+1
Units: 3/5

Nigel Pearson was encouraged by Watford’s performance at Anfield last weekend and it’s fair to say that the Hornets created some excellent chances that should really have been converted by Abdoulaye Doucoure and Ismaila Sarr.

However, that 2-0 reverse will strangely boost a team who are anchored to the foot of the Premier League table and Sunday’s clash against Manchester United provides the team with a chance to experience lift-off.

Watford have failed to win at Vicarage Road in eight attempts this term, although half of these matches have been drawn and they were the better team when playing out a goalless draw against Crystal Palace recently.

Defensively, Pearson doesn’t have a lot to improve upon, although the team have scored just nine goals in seventeen encounters and that illustrates where the chief problem lies.

Troy Deeney is likely to lead the line and perhaps the captain will find the moments of magic against United, while Sarr missed a sitter at Anfield but might get another opportunity to make his mark.

Gerard Deulofeu has actually had an excellent season despite his team’s plight and we’re not sure Manchester United should be so short in the betting considering they have won just two of eight matches on the road.

Yes, the Red Devils won at the Etihad Stadium recently and hatched an excellent game plan to expose Manchester City on the break, although their only other victory came at Norwich City and there have been some meek showings.

Most notably, Sheffield United recently played United off the park for large chunks of their 3-3 draw at Bramall Lane, while the visitors have also lost at Newcastle, West Ham and Bournemouth.

That will give Pearson hope that a precious three points can be landed and we’ll take Watford on the Asian Handicap.
