Betting Tip: No Goal Scorer - Watford vs Manchester Utd @ 13/2 with bet365

Don’t expect goals at Vicarage Road on Saturday lunchtime. The net has bulged just seven times in six matches so far this season, with Watford shedding their previous characteristics of being a team who score plenty and concede nearly as many.

Quique Flores has made this Hornets team difficult to beat and that is why they sit 11th in the table, with the Premier League new boys experiencing just four defeats in twelve matches played.

Manchester United don’t lose too many games either. This pragmatic Red Devils team sit third in the Premier League table, with seven away matches yielding a sum total of fifteen goals.

Louis van Gaal has selection headaches thanks to the injuries to Anthony Martial, Michael Carrick and Marouane Fellaini, although we know that United are going to be rock solid in defence.

The visitors have now kept five consecutive clean sheets in all competitions. This includes shut-outs against Manchester City, Crystal Palace and CSKA Moscow, so you would think that they have enough to stop the home team scoring.

David de Gea is probably the best keeper in the land, with Watford having failed to score in four of their matches at Vicarage Road and they were effectively gifted two goals when beating West Ham recently.

Therefore, we’re expecting the possibility of a goalless draw in this game, with United badly short of attacking options now that Martial has been ruled out. Memphis Depay is yet to deliver in a United shirt and we’re not sure Wayne Rooney is the answer either.

So let’s take a punt on no player scoring on Saturday and we’ll make some money if the own goal is the only goal of the game.
