Enhanced Odds: 33/1 on Watford or 7/1 on Man Utd

Shaka Hislop suggests something doesn't add up with the FA's decision not to suspend Man United forward Romelu Lukaku.

Manchester United were humbled at Watford last season - and Jose Mourinho is expecting an even tougher test at Vicarage Road this time around.

Watford have lost 12 of their last 13 games against Manchester United in all competitions, winning the other in the Premier League in this exact fixture last season (3-1).

Defender DeAndre Yedlin calls on Newcastle United to "stick together" after suffering four consecutive defeats in the Premier League. But Young, who got the victor against Brighton on Saturday, is hoping that will change against his former club at Vicarage Road.

'It's going to be a tough game.

Now Jose Mourinho's men face a trip to Watford that is considered more daunting than it perhaps has been in previous years.

While United were relying on an unfortunate Lewis Dunk own goal to see off their newly promoted opposition on Saturday, Watford were sweeping aside last season's Championship winners Newcastle at St James's Park.

"Against Watford I was very upset with Watford's first goal after some guy sent (Anthony) Martial to the hospital and the referee let it go", Mourinho said.

"When I wanted to know something about the Premier League when I was in Portugal or when I was in Greece the best person to talk to was Jose".

Inspired by the sensational talent of Richarlison, Watford sit eighth in the table on 21 points, and could move as high as sixth with a win against United.

According to The Sun, Watford want to appoint Silva as their manager, and it seems that some Everton fans want the Portuguese as well.

"I still do know a few [there] and I've still got friends who work there". I talk to them now and again and see how things are going.

Besides being good friends, Silva also admitted he looks up to Mourinho and hopes to one day emulate his fellow countryman's managerial successes.

Zlatan Ibrahimović could be in contention for his first start since April, the Swede has played three substitute games since his return in the 4-1 win over Newcastle but will be itching to start from the beginning.

"He was on the pitch and I think Paul played very well but even with Paul on the pitch I don't think we managed to be fully in control".
