Manchester United will take on Watford in the weekend Premier League clash at Vicarage Road Stadium on Saturday (21 November).

Where to watch live

Kick-off is at 12:45pm GMT. Live coverage is on BT Sport 1 and BT Sport Ultra HD. Radio coverage of the match is available on BBC Radio 5 Live. Catch the highlights of the game on Match of the Day on BBC One and BBC One HD at 10:20pm GMT.


Watford come into this fixture after a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Leicester City at home. Two goals from the Foxes in the second half was sufficient for them to seal three points and despite a penalty from Tro Deeney in the 75<sup>th minute, it was not sufficient for him to save his side from a defeat.

They have two wins from the last five league matches. After two weeks of international break, Quipe Sanchez Flores will be hoping his side bounce back when they host the Red Devils on Saturday afternoon.

United enter this fixture after their 2-0 victory over West Bromwich Albion at Old Trafford before the international break. They have the best defensive record in the league as they have conceded only eight goals so far.

Louis van Gaal has seen his side maintain clean sheets in five matches played in all competitions. The Dutchman will want to extend the feat when United face Watford.

What managers say

Quique Sanchez Flores: "I gave David [De Gea] his debut. He was the third-choice keeper and after one month he was first choice. He was amazing. You just need to focus on the training and watch how he is taking the ball and handling it."

Louis van Gaal: "What they have told me is private I think, but we have communicated about it [Paris attacks]. I think it is, for every human being in this world, a big blow, so I don't think I have to mention what our discussions were. Schweinsteiger and Schneiderlin can play, if we don't take into account this event that has happened."
