Watford v Manchester United

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is preparing his troops for Tuesday's Premier League clash at Watford and considering his options.

"In the Champions League (against Basel), we played some of the best football away from home in the first half and could have been 6-0, but it was 0-0", he said.

Ashley Young, who scored Man United's victor on Saturday, spent 12 years at Watford.

Marcos Rojo, Paul Pogba and Zlatan Ibrahimovic are all back in the frame, of course, and Michael Carrick has revealed he is close to a return following a heart procedure. "I was there from when I was 10 to 21, it is where I plied my trade as a kid and I learned the game in my early years so it is always nice to go back there - but it will be even better if we go back there and get three points".

'It's going to be a tough game.

Everton lost against Southampton this weekend, while Watford won against Newcastle United in the Premier League.

Everton continue to pursue Silva, and it is not too hard to understand why the Toffees are so keen on a manager that has introduced an exciting brand of football to the Watford supporters. The 20-year old is dynamic - with pace and strength in the air (4.2 aerial duels won per game) - and his performance will be really key to the home side who could potentially exploit United's recent shaky displays at the back - particularly in the full-back areas where they tend to get caught high up.

Justin Trudeau calls on men to help end violence against women
Gord Friesen of the Winnipeg police said gender-based violence accounts for the largest volume of calls to the police service. Yet despite its pervasiveness, violence against women is not inevitable - and it is preventable.

Following victories versus West Ham and Newcastle in the last two matchdays, the Hornets will be looking to win three successive Premier League games for the first time since December 2015 (four in a row).

He added: "I still do know a few there". I think they have a squad full of very good players, that are not normal to be a mid-table team.

Besides being good friends, Silva also admitted he looks up to Mourinho and hopes to one day emulate his fellow countryman's managerial successes.

Silva certainly doing something right at Watford, certainly has them playing well!

"He was on the pitch and I think Paul played very well but even with Paul on the pitch I don't think we managed to be fully in control".

Manchester United will face a tough test if they are to reduce the gap on Manchester City to five points for at least 24 hours, as they travel to the English capital to take on the in-form Watford.
