Manchester United will be bidding to return to winning ways in the Premier League when they make the trip to Vicarage Road on Saturday afternoon to face Watford.
The Red Devils suffered a 2-0 defeat to Manchester City before the international break, while Watford, who are just outside the relegation zone in England's top flight, lost 1-0 at Arsenal in their last contest.
Manchester United suffered a 2-0 home defeat to Man City in their last match on November 6; the result increased the pressure on head coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, but the Norwegian has kept his job and will lead the team into Saturday's contest at Vicarage Road.
Manchester United is only five points off the top four and would ease the pressure on Solskjaer with a win this weekend, but the treble-winning striker will only ever be one bad result away from another full-blown crisis.
However, Raphael Varane and Edinson Cavani will diss the contest through injury, while Paul Pogba, who would have missed this game regardless through suspension, is recovering from a thigh issue in Dubai.
Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood could provide the support to Cristiano Ronaldo, with Solskjaer unlikely to stick with a 3-5-2 formation for this match.
Manchester United possible starting lineup:
De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw; McTominay, Fred; Greenwood, Fernandes, Rashford; Ronaldo
