Our match prediction:
Manchester United will be aiming to make amends for back-to-back defeats to the likes of Manchester City and Feyenoord when they square off against Watford on Sunday afternoon. The Red Devils are eager to return to winning ways and, no doubt, Jose Mourinho is going to field the best possible side this time out. Zlatan Ibrahimovic came as a substitute in the 1-0 loss to Feyenoord in the Europa League, but the Swedish ace is likely to lead the line for the Red Devils against Watford. The Hornets proved their worth in a 4-2 win over West Ham United and it has to be noted that they came from behind to beat the Hammers in London. However, Watford often struggle against top-table sides and they are unlikely to make life difficult for Jose Mourinho’s troops in Sunday’s football match. Watford suit Man Utd and we predict that the Red Devils are going to record their 11th consecutive win over the Hornets in all competitions.
Highligted Player (Pantilimon):
Born in Bacau on 1st February 1987, Costel Fane Pantilimon became famous as the tallest Premier League footballer at six foot, eight inches. The towering shot-stopper made a name for himself at Politehnica Timisoara, where he spent ten years, albeit only making 93 league outings. In 2011, he signed for Manchester City to act as an understudy to England number one Joe Hart, but eventually grew frustrated by the lack of first team football after featuring in just seven Premier League fixtures during the four years at Etihad Stadium. Pantilimon was able to kick-start his career at Sunderland, becoming their first choice goalkeeper, but he ultimately lost his place in the side and decided to join Watford in the summer of 2015. The Hornets keeper has been a member of the Romania national team since 2008 and he amassed over 20 appearances for Tricolorii despite never quite being able to establish himself as an undisputed starter.
Highlighted Team (Manchester United):
Over the years Manchester United have established themselves as one of the greatest clubs in world football. The Red Devils have won three European Cup (Champions League) trophies and they have clinched no less than 20 Premier League titles. A number of top-class players were part of Manchester United in the past, but, no doubt, the club’s biggest legend is coach Sir Alex Ferguson, who was in charge of the team for 26 years. During Alex Ferguson’s spell at Old Trafford the club won a number of trophies, but the Red Devils have been struggling in all competitions ever since he retired. Louis van Gaal helped Manchester United win the FA Cup trophy in the 2015/2016 season, with Jese Lingard scoring the winner in the 2-1 triumph over Crystal Palace at Wembley Stadium. The likes of Bobby Charlton, Paul Scholes, Roy Keane, Ruud van Nistelrooy, Wayne Rooney, Cristiano Ronaldo, George Best and Eric Cantona are the football stars that graced Old Trafford for Manchester United.
