Betting Tip: Watford @ 5/1 with bet365

Whisper it quietly but Manchester United might not just struggle to challenge for the Premier League title this season but also miss out on a top four spot.

While most teams will lose to Manchester City this season and the Red Devils clearly care little about the Europa League, consecutive defeats illustrate that this United team don’t appear that much better than the side who operated under Louis van Gaal.

Jose Mourinho claimed his side should have had two penalties in the derby and then strangely spoke in a negative fashion about the Europa League so it was little surprise that Feyenoord beat a pretty strong team on paper.

United head to Vicarage Road on Sunday and will clearly be well backed to return to winning ways, although it’s questionable whether Mourinho’s men should even be odds-on for the clash, let alone a best price 4/6.

Watford have only got four points from four games, although they’ve faced Chelsea and Arsenal at Vicarage Road already, acquitting themselves well and it was only some smart keeping from Petr Cech which prevented them from getting a result against the Gunners.

Last weekend, they came from 2-0 down to win 4-2 at the Olympic Stadium and it means they now have seven goals this season, with Odion Ighalo and Troy Deeney both getting off the mark for the Hornets.

Walter Mazzarri clearly needs to address defensive issues which has seen Watford concede an average of two goals per game, although this is an attack-minded side who will relish getting stuck into a United defence featuring Daley Blind and Eric Bailly.

That’s unless Mourinho realises that Blind is not really a centre-half and opts for Chris Smalling instead, although this is a manager who buys into the theory that Wayne Rooney is a capable player at this level rather than a complete has-been.

United remain disjointed and we can follow up that winning bet on Feyenoord on Thursday with another successful wager on Watford.
