Our match prediction:
Just ten days ago, everybody wanted to see the back of Louis van Gaal, but three impressive victories later and people are no longer sure that Jose Mourinho is the best choice. It is not all about results though as the Dutch manager has shown incredible courage and respect towards club’s youth academy to field a plethora of talented youngsters in the past few weeks, with Marcus Rashford, Guillermo Varela and Timothy Fosu-Mensah all impressing in an unlikely victory over Arsenal. A morale-boosting win over Premier League title contenders was just what the Red Devils needed at the difficult time for the club and they will definitely have something to build on when they face Watford, a team that appear to have suffered a dip in form of late. The Hornets have scored just three goals in last five games and it is not too difficult to predict they will take the fall at Old Trafford.

Schweinsteiger was born on 1 August, 1984 and he scored 45 goals in 342 appearances for Bayern Munich.
