Lukaku Scores, Matic Sees RED As Manchester United Hold On To Beat Watford

Manchester United battled their way to a 2-1 win at Vicarage Road on Saturday in a game where they displayed much more togetherness than previous matches.

Two first-half goals from Romelu Lukaku and Chris Smalling left the manager Jose Mourinho, his staff and his players elated, even the travelling army of United fans, with the general mood around the camp a far cry from what it was just a few weeks ago.

The second-half was all about the solidity of United’s rearguard action and pressure from Watford.

The pressure became evident as Nemanja Matic was being sent off following a series of fouls. United then needed a wonderful David de Gea’s late save to deny Christian Kabasele but they did  just hold out. 

United remain six points behind joint-leaders Chelsea and Liverpool – now the only teams boasting a 100 per-cent record as a result of United’s win – but the feel-good factor inside Mourinho’s camp is certainly much improved after an excellent win on Saturday.
