The Hornest came out a much improved side in the second half, as the looked to trouble the United defence with their route one approach.

However, Watford pulled a goal back in the 65th minute as Andre Grey fired past De Gea following Doucoure's ball into the box.
 
Jose Mourinho responded by throwing on Anthony Martial for Jesse Lingard for the final 15 minutes as the visitors looked to restore their two-goal cushion.
 
The clash ended on a sour note for the Red Devils as Nemanja Matic was sent off for a second bookable offence, but his side managed to hold on for victory.
