Watford Predictions: Predicted Watford FC Starting XI to face Man United

Watford’s last two matches in the Premier League have been terrible endorsements of their football that they’re capable of producing as they resulted in the Hornets conceding 8 goals in 2 fixtures.

On the back of a 5-0 thrashing at the hands of Liverpool, Watford went on to lose 3-1 to City the next weekend as well.

They now face the even more challenging task of travelling to Old Trafford to face off against an up-beat Manchester United side bound to be in good spirits considering that new manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was recent announced permanently, making this his first game in charge.

Team News

Andre Grey and Jose Holebas we’re both doubts during the run-in to this crucial fixture but they’ve both been cleared for action by the manager having recovered completely from their respective injuries.

The only real injury concern for Javi Gracia at this point in time is former Manchester United midfielder Tom Cleverly. His calf problem is currently being assessed by the Hornets staff but with less than 48 hours left to the fixture, his involvement will be a huge doubt.

Predicted Watford XI

Formation: 4-2-2-2

Manager: Javi Gracia

GK – Ben Foster

The Englishman has been in fine form all campaign and has successfully managed to reignite his fleeting career.

Kiko Femenia Watford

RB – Kiko Femenia

Femenia’s return from injury will come as a massive boost to the Hornets as despite Janmaat’s experience, they’ve missed his pace.

RCB – Christian Kabasele

The 28-year-old has turned into a fan-favourite at Vicarage Road and has performed up to mark so far this season.

LCB – Craig Cathcart

Very much the leader of this Hornets backline, Cathcart has even chipped in with 3 goals this season and is expected to start.

LB – Jose Holebas 

The Greek international has proven his worth time and again this season and his return from injury is bound to come as good news. 


RDM – Abdoulaye Doucoure

The Frenchman is supremely highly-rated and is touted to be capable of playing at one of Europe’s biggest clubs. 

LDM – Etienne Capoue 

The 30-year-old is a veteran of the English game now and has been an excellent servant to the Hornets over the years. 

RAM – Ken Sema

The 25-year-old has really come into the fore at Watford and his performances during Roberto Pereyra’s injury were crucial. 

LAM – Roberto Pereyra

The Argentine hasn’t enjoyed a free-flowing season of consistent football because of injuries and he will be looking to bounce back.


RF – Gerard Deulofeu

The former Barcelona man has to do with a place on the bench in their last tie against City and is expected to start.

LF – Troy Deeney

Another key player for Watford, without Deeney’s goals, they wouldn’t have a shout of being anywhere near the top half of the table.
