Match Preview

  • Unbeaten when scoring first at home this Premier League (PL) season (W5, D2), Manchester United haven’t actually lost here in the league since March 2009 when netting first. Five of those seven matches this season saw United ahead at half-time and now form part of an incredible run since 1984 of 286 games without defeat (W268, D18) at Old Trafford after leading at the break.
  • Though a home win is widely expected, the hosts’ win-rate from PL home games entered as betting favourites is just 50.00%. If they do win, United may convert a penalty en-route, having done so in four of their six PL home wins this term. Overall, United have averaged exactly 3.00 goals across their home league wins in 2019/20.
  • Painfully for them, Watford have thrown away eight of nine possible points after scoring first in each of their last three league matches. Across those three matches, Watford also dropped a net average of exactly 2.00 points beyond the hour mark.
  • Watford are lamenting a league win-rate of just 9.09% this term as an away outsider, and their league record on the road since the start of December certainly reads badly: W1, D2, L3. Each of those losses saw the ‘Hornets’ concede last beyond the 89th minute.
  • Players to watch: United are unbeaten with newcomer Bruno Fernandes in a PL XI (W1, D1). After an assist in the win, Fernandes is currently averaging 0.42 PL / Primeira Liga assists per-game this term.
  • Watford midfielder Abdoulaye Doucouré netted in last season’s corresponding fixture and opened the scoring in the Hornets’ last road trip.
  • Stat attack: Three of United’s four penalty goals converted during a PL home win so far this term have proven decisive.
  • Five of United’s six PL home wins have seen them score exactly once inside the opening half-hour.
  • Watford’s last four PL away draws (all ‘1-1’) have each come after they opened the scoring inside the first half-hour of play.
