The Premier League will resume on Saturday after the November international break. Manchester United will face Watford in the Premier League clash. United needed to bounce back after they suffered a humbling defeat against Manchester City in their last match. It will be an important fixture for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer because he has been facing scrutiny over his position. The fixture is also equally important for Watford because they will take on the field with their new manager. The club has recently appointed Claudio Ranieri as their manager to replace Xisco Munoz. This will be a clash between two struggling sides. It would be quite an easy game for Manchester United after a period of really tough fixtures.

Watford vs Manchester United Match Preview
The beginning of this season has not been quite good for Manchester United as they have lost three of their last four Premier League games. This fixture is a must win for the club as they travel to Watford. The Red Devils are already nine points behind Premier League leaders Chelsea after eleven games. Therefore, they cannot afford to lose easy points. Watford too have a bad season going on as they are lying at the 17th spot. Watford needed points to avoid relegation. Watford are probably not quite the team who can turn around the game against United, so it will be an easy win for the Reds.

Paul Pogba is suspended after he received red card against Liverpool in October. Besides that, Pogba has sustained a thigh muscle injury while away with France. He will be at the sidelines along with his national compatriot Raphael Varane.
There are doubts too about Edinson Cavani because he did not join with his national team due to a tendon problem. Luke Shaw has been on a rest as he recovered from the concussion sustained during that 2-0 loss to City. Scott McTominay is in contention becuase he didn’t play for Scotland.
Several players of Watford were away on international duty over the last week. Slovakian midfielder Juraj Kucka will be suspended for United’s visit because he picked up two yellow cards in the recent reverse at Arsenal. Ken Sema (knee) and Peter Etebo (thigh) have been absentees for long. Centre-back Christian Kabasele is still recovering after a hamstring strain.
