United were largely unimpressive during Saturday’s 1-0 Premier League victory over Brighton, with Mourinho admitting his side are far from their best form of late.

Neighbours and title rivals Man City won late on against Huddersfield on Sunday to restore their eight-point advantage over United at the top of the table, and any more slip-ups from the Red Devils could effectively end their title hopes before the New Year.

A trip to Marco Silva’s in-form Watford, therefore, comes at a tricky time for United – especially as the Red Devils were comprehensively beaten 3-1 by the Hornets at Vicarage Road last season.
