Manchester United vs Watford Prediction February 26 2022


Manchester United (MU) will host relegation zone team Watford in Week 27 of the 2021/22 Premier League , Saturday 26 February 2022. The Premier League match at Old Trafford is scheduled to kick-off.

Manchester United’s position in fourth place is now threatened by Arsenal. MU is only one point ahead of Arsenal, but the Gunners still have two games to spare. While still able, MU need to run as fast as possible to avoid their pursuit.

In the middle of last week, MU drew 1-1 with hosts Atletico Madrid in the first leg of the Champions League last 16. Young player Anthony Elanga came off the bench and saved United from defeat.

In that match, MU difficulty building attacks. Their midfield, which was inhabited by Paul Pogba, Fred, and Bruno Fernandes, did not work optimally. Ralf Rangnick’s attack line was automatically sluggish, but fortunately they avoided defeat.

Against Watford, who is now managed by Roy Hodgson, United’s creative players need to perform better. It was one of their keys to securing the three points.

At the first meeting of the season, Watford, still managed by Claudio Ranieri, overthrew Manchester United, which is still being managed by Ole Gunnar Solksjaer, with a landslide score of 4-1. It also marked the end of Solksjaer’s coaching era at United.

United have never failed to win their home games against Watford in the Premier League. Can they continue that positive record at Old Trafford later?
