Manchester United v Watford EPL Match Betting News

Entertainment likely to be in short supply as goal-shy Watford travel north

It’s pretty hard to get excited about Manchester United at 33/100 here after the lifeless goalless draw at West Ham on Thursday night.

Second place in the Premier League may be secure, but there is still the FA Cup final to come yet motivation appears to be through the floor.

Can Watford stun United at’s 8/1? It’s possible. West Brom have been here and done it recently, while Watford were unlucky to lose at Tottenham in their last away game. United look as distracted now as Spurs did then.

The problem is that Watford haven’t scored a goal away from home since the first week of January, in a 3-1 defeat at Manchester City.

That’s eight games, with only one goalless draw at Stoke to show for it.

And now they take on the team with the best home defensive record in the division. United have conceded only nine Premier League goals at Old Trafford all season, and it would be a surprise to see that reach double-figures on Sunday.

United might not appeal much at 33/100, but 11/8 for a win to nil looks far more like it.

Against teams outside the top seven at Old Trafford, United have won 10 out of 11, with the only blip a goalless draw with Southampton in December. Of those 10 wins, nine have come with a clean sheet.

With United seemingly neither capable nor particularly bothered about scoring a load of goals, 1-0 and 2-0 look decent punts in the correct-score market at 15/2 and 13/2 respectively. Given Watford’s chronic lack of goals away from home and what we saw – or more accurately didn’t see – from United on Thursday, there could also be a bit of mileage in under 0.5 goals at 19/1.

Watford to win at 9/1
 Man United 3- 1 at 19/2
Rashford to Score at 6/5
