With their spot in the top four of the Premier League table far from secure as Arsenal, West Ham United and Wolverhampton Wanderers bear down on them, Man United made a positive step towards trying to claim Champions League glory on Wednesday night.
Taking on Atletico Madrid in the first leg of their last-16 showdown, Ralf Rangnick‘s side fell behind through Joao Felix‘s header and could not break down the Diego Simeone-marshalled defence before the introduction of a certain teenager helped to restore parity.
Developing a reputation as a cool, calm and collected finisher, Anthony Elanga slotted past Jan Oblak to rescue a 1-1 draw and leave it all to play for in the second leg after producing a similar effort in an entertaining 4-2 victory over Leeds United a few days before.
The Elland Road victory has allowed Man United to maintain their fourth-placed ranking in the table, but Arsenal have cut the gap to just one point with victory over Wolves on Thursday evening, and it is now five games unbeaten for the Red Devils in all tournaments.
Furthermore, Man United have lost just one of their last 14 in the top flight and are aiming to make it three league wins on the bounce for the first time since the turn of the year, so not many will be placing bets on Watford springing any more surprises.
Man United are once again expected to make do without Edinson Cavani due to his groin issue, and Scott McTominay will also miss out after contracting an illness.
Paul Pogba and Fred ought to continue in the midfield as McTominay recovers, while Elanga is certainly threatening to displace Marcus Rashford or Jadon Sancho on the flanks.
Victor Lindelof was a surprise starter at right-back at the Wanda Metropolitano, but Diogo Dalot ought to return here as Alex Telles battles Luke Shaw for a start on the left-hand side.
As for Watford, Peter Etebo and Nicolas Nkoulou remain absent while they build up their match fitness, while Joao Pedro and Juraj Kucka are set to be back from their knocks.
Ex-Man United starlets Joshua King and Tom Cleverley will both look to make an impact at their old home, but the duo were hauled off in the Palace loss and could be at risk of losing their places here, although King should be fine to go despite a minor injury scare.
