Watford’s excellent start to the season continued when they defeated Spurs 2-1 in their last outing before the international break. That run will be tested to the maximum again today, when they host Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United side.
Unluckily for the Hornets, they will be facing United at a time where striker Romelu Lukaku is bang in form. The Belgian hit man has all of a sudden hit his straps.
Pre international break he scored a brace in the 2-0 away win at Burnley. He then followed this up with a goal away at Scotland in the friendly (only playing 45 mins), before firing another brace away at Iceland in the UEFA Nations League, last Tuesday. The big man is now in exceptional form.
Recommended Bet – 10 Points Bet on 6/4 Lukaku to score anytime with Ladbrokes, Coral or Betvictor. – Tipping Results so far this Season.
It’s been a funny start to the season for United. They were poor away at Brighton in the 3-2 defeat. They then played well against Spurs in the first half at Old Trafford, but ended up getting trounced 3-0, and their most recent result was the 2-0 win away at Burnley.
As for Watford, what can we say. Yes, 3 of their 4 wins have come at home, but they were against Brighton (2-0), Crystal Palace (2-1), and Tottenham (2-1), all pretty decent opposition. Their away win was a 3-1 victory at Turf Moor, over Burnley.
I don’t like making predictions on United given the up and down nature of their season to date, one minute all is going well, the next, it’s all doom and gloom and talk of the end of Mourinho. Given Lukaku’s form though, I think this bet represent’s good value today.
