<div><h2 style="text-align:center">Watford vs Man Utd</h2><p style="text-align:center"><strong>Sunday 22nd December at Vicarage road</strong></p><p style="text-align:center"><a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/football/eng/premier-league/watford-fc-vs-manchester-united-3841501/?mtid=1" target="_blank"><strong>Live Odds</strong></a></p><p style="text-align:center"> </p><h2 style="text-align:center">TEAM PREVIEWS</h2><h2 style="text-align:center"> </h2><h2>Watford:</h2><p>Nigel Pearson is all about organization and team connections. He will set out a game plan that everyone one of his troops must adhere to. No one will be asked anything other than just do your job and as a collective they will be very hard to break done and beat. Individual flair will be encouraged in the opponents final third. Troy Deeney will enjoy the ball coming into the box early making him favorite to get across his markers. Midfielders will press and keep the game infront of them allowing for quick passing to the widemen creating 1v1 matchups. Defenders will be required to defend first and be within touching distance of their defensive partner so not to be pulled into positions that are not favorable. Gerard Deulofeu has the ability to win his side a football match with his great speed and balance matched by coming inside on either foot. .</p><p><strong>KEY Strengths: </strong>Organization, High Tempo, Compact</p><p><strong>KEY Weakness:</strong> Isolated, over commit, passive in press.</p><p> </p><p> </p><h2>Man Utd</h2><p>This is a very tough game for Ole Gunner Solskjaer’s men. The Red Devils are unbeaten in their last six games and have risen up the table to 6th place. This side is a lot better when Anthony Martial is at the head of affairs. He has movement both ways and a footballing brain that allows players to move into the space he has vacated.</p><p>Fred is enjoying a settled run in the starting line up and that has coincided with some outstanding displays. The pace of the front four in Daniel James Marcus Rashford Jesse Lingard and Martial would scare any top-level defence. The jury is most definitely out on the whole defence and I would not trust them if put under immediate pressure. The biggest question is How big is the fight in one of the biggest Premier League Dogs?</p><p> </p><p><strong>KEY Strengths:</strong> Pace of forwards, Brain of Martial, Fred marshalling</p><p><strong>KEY Weakness:</strong> Lack of fight, defence not connected, Midfield gaps</p><p> </p><h2>Betting Analysis:</h2><p>I think this will be a dog fight from very early on. Watford must get amongst the superstars from Old Trafford and question how much they really want it. Deulofeu will be instrumental in providing the ammunition for Deeney and at least one other midfielder arriving late. Set pieces will also be key to test the United resolve. Man utd have goals from a variety of sources. This could well be the day Watford get back to the way they have had so much joy at Vicarage Road and why visiting teams hate it so much.</p><p><strong>TIPS:</strong> Both team to score and over 2.5 goals @2.2 – Watford D/C @ 2.05 at</p></div>
