Manchester United will be looking to get back to winning ways when they face Watford on Saturday. As all eyes will be on how Manchester United perform, they cannot afford to slip up against Claudio Ranieri's rejuvenated Hornets. Perhaps, results from the past could tell us how this one will go.
Recall that Watford themselves are not in good form this season as they hope to avoid relegation at the end of the season. In the same vein, Manchester United have only one win from their last 5 Premier League games. This has seen the call for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's sacking get louder.
Hence, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Ronaldo and his teammates should be heading into the fixture with the aim of securing all three points on offer. In fact, if the results of the last five meetings are considered, victory should go Manchester United's way.
As we all preparing for this Premier League game, let us take a look at the results of the last 5 meetings between these two clubs.
