Manchester United 2-0 Watford : Red Devils Overpowered The Hornets

Manchester United At Old Trafford presented one of the best displays of football against the Hornets who had been victorious in their last two League games which also included their victory over the title contending Arsenal.

Juan Mata opened the scoring in the 32nd minute with a Shot from Close range after wasted efforts by Paul Pogba, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Anthony Martial. Before the goal Manchester United had already overwhelmed the Watford side, sending them into a defensive situation.

Anthony Martial had made his impact on his return to take Rashford's place assisting the first goal and scoring an intelligent goal in his comeback. Heurelho Gomes was vigilant and clearly the reason why more goals were not conceded in the game but there was actually nothing he could do in Martial's goal case.

He had successfully stopped Zlatan Ibrahimovic at close range, Paul Pogba’s first Shot and many other remarkable saves, while on the other side David De Gea enjoyed a clean sheet with some remarkable saves, Stopping Mauro Zarate's free-kick.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho:

"In the first half, the football was fabulous. The fans got behind the team just before we scored the goal because we were phenomenal.
"We are not a team scoring lots of goals so it is important to keep the clean sheets. I am really happy with the performance.

"Martial deserves the chance. He has worked harder than ever in the last two weeks in the way I like - silent but hard."

Watford boss Walter Mazzarri:
"It is a pity because we started very well. The important thing that we have to avoid is losing too many balls in the midfield. This is what cost us the result today.

"We had a chance with Jose Holebas, but, after they scored, for five to 10 minutes we lost a little bit of focus and especially defensively we committed some mistakes."
