FA CUP: Six times Watford thrashed Man Utd, the third was a 5-1 win

Manchester United commence the 2020/21 Emirates FA Cup campaign with a home tie towards Championship side Watford on Saturday. Here are six occasions where Watford trashed Manchester united

Relegated from the Premier League last season, Watford currently take a seat sixth in the Championship, having played 22 games. The Hornets have been helped with the resources of their strong record at home, winning eight of 11 games, however their poor form away – the Watford side have won only twice away – coupled with struggles in front of goals contibuted to the departure of manager Vladimir Ivic a week earlier than Christmas, after actually 4 months at the helm. He has been replaced via former Dinamo Tbilisi manager Xisco Munoz, who masterminded a 1-0 win over pacesetters Norwich City in his first match in charge, even though that was accompanied up via a 2-1 reverse at fellow promotion chasers Swansea City.

The Hornets, boosted with the experience of Ben Foster, Craig Cathcart and Tom Cleverley, have the second-best defence in the Championship this season, whilst Ismaila Sarr (four goals in 18 games) and Pedro (five in 16) grant plenty of chance going forward.
