A heavily-changed Manchester United side could only manage a goalless draw at West Ham United on Thursday. However, a draw was enough to ensure a second-place finish for United, and now they will aim to finish their league season with a win over Watford on Sunday.
United manager Jose Mourinho has his eyes set on the upcoming FA Cup final with Chelsea, and he should use the game against the Hornets to prepare for the final.
The Red Devils will get a break of only 72 hours before the game, and we expect Mourinho to make a number of changes to the starting eleven that played against the Hammers.
The Hornets come into this game on the back of a 2-1 home win over Newcastle United. The win put an end to a winless run of seven games. Watford are set to spend another season in Premier League, but it has been a disappointing season overall. They had made an impressive start to their season under Marco Silva, but it didn’t last long due to multiple reasons. Javi Garcia has led them to safety, but his spell at the club has been underwhelming, to say the least.
Earlier this season, United claimed an exciting 4-2 win in the reverse fixture at Vicarage Road.
