England Premier League
Sunday 13th May 2018
Kick off at 3pm BST
Venue: Old Trafford
Manchester United’s final game of the season will be at home against Watford where the Red Devils will start off as easy odds on favourites for all three points. The club have been hit and miss this season, winning some huge matches against the very best sides but then dropping points against some of the bottom half clubs.
Manchester United should be able to ease to victory in this match but the motivation will be reserved for the FA Cup final on May 19th where they will play Chelsea and manager Jose Mourinho will be looking for his 3rd major trophy with the club in two seasons.
Manchester United have been the 3rd best team at home in the league this season where they have lost just 2 games. They have conceded just 9 goals, the best record in the league at home and Mourinho will not want that stat to turn into double figures come the final whistle of this game.
Watford are in 13th and all in all have had a positive season despite many flaws. Recent form has been poor where the side seemed to be playing in holiday mode but there was a good positive note to their play when they recently beat Newcastle 2-1. Away from home they have a poor record with 12 losses from 18 games which includes losing 5 straight matches in a row.
