Ismaili Sarr made it two Watford just few minutes to the break with a superb finish, seeing United go into break 2 gaols behind Watford.

Early into the second half, however, Donny van de Beek, who came in as a substitute, rekindled hope for United, scoring in the 50th minute.

But United were reduced to 10-men as Harry Maguire was sent of the pitch after picking a second yellow card in the 69th minute.

Joao Pedro sealed Watford’s win in 90+2 minutes, while Denis buried the Red Devils in the 90+6 minute of the game.
