Manchester United travel to Hertfordshire to take on eighth-place Watford on Tuesday.

But, with a trip to Arsenal to come on Saturday, this feels like a key week coming up for United and Mourinho will feel that nothing less than three points at Vicarage Road can prop up their fading hopes of winning the Premier League title.

Manchester United midfielder Nemanja Matic was forced off early in the second half with what appeared to be a leg injury.

An in-form Watford could secure their third consecutive Premier League victory with a win tonight - a feat they have managed once before in December 2015.

And against his former club, the 32-year-old delivered a masterclass of a performance in the first half.

Manager Jose Mourinho criticised the player's decision to leave.

Gomes was nearly rooted to the spot as Young's shot curled into the top corner.

With Lingard supporting Martial and Romelu Lukaku in a 3-4-1-2 system, United were set up perfectly to hit Watford on the break and in the 32nd minute they were three goals to the good.

United continued their onslaught as Martial latched on to a Lukaku through-ball following a poor attempted clearance from Christian Kabasele to finish low past Gomes.

Had it not been for Gomes it would have been 4-0 by half-time, the Brazilian getting down to save from Lukaku and then reacting extraordinarily quickly to palm Lingard's follow-up over the bar. Soon afterwards, Richarlison's header rattled the crossbar.

Former club Borussia Dortmund are said to be interested in taking him back to the Bundesliga 18 months after they sold him to United for £30million.

He whistled another shot inches wide before Watford went up the other end to win a penalty as Rojo brought down substitute Roberto Pereyra, Deeney converting having only just come off the bench himself.

There was a further lift for the home fans when Deeney made his return after a three-game suspension. If I go back then I'll be a better player.
