Jose Mourinho's Incredible Reaction To Ashley Young's Free-Kick

Ashley Young is expecting a hard night when Manchester United face his former club Watford on Tuesday night.

As is often the case with Jose Mourinho and short turnarounds, there could be a number of changes from the side which saw off Brighton, with Zlatan Ibrahimovic primed for a first start since April.

They have a tough away trip to Arsenal next weekend, but Dublin believes facing Watford at Vicarage Road tonight will be equally problematic, if not more so because of the way Marco Silva's team have been playing.

After starting the season in fine form, regularly scoring four goals past their opponents, the goals have seemingly dried up over the last few months, with only Newcastle United being out to the sword in recent times.

Mourinho recently spoke of Watford: "They have an unusual squad for a mid-table team". The Younes Kaboul (hamstring), Craig Cathcart (knee), Tommie Hoban (ACL), Isaac Success and Nathaniel Chalobah (both knee) are all on the sidelines and set to miss the tie.

Manchester United have lost their last two Premier League away games; 1-2 at Huddersfield Town and 0-1 at Chelsea.

United slowly grew into the game, although they struggled to link up with Romelu Lukaku.

Drawing one back, the home side went looking for more and managed a second after 84 minutes.

The hosts come into this match having made their joint best-ever start to a top-flight season with 21 points from 13 games, leaving them eighth in the standings and with the prospect of climbing up to sixth should they win tonight.

With City not in action until Wednesday evening, Jose Mourinho's side had a chance to put some pressure on the title favourites and did so as they eventually ran out 4-2 winners in Hertfordshire.

Richarlison has been on fire for Watford with five goals and three assists What is the team news?

Romelu Lukaku could make his 200th Premier League appearance in this match - he now has 93 goals.

After seeing his victor against Brighton on Saturday go down as an own goal, the opener was Young's first league strike since May 2016. In his six league apps since then, he's scored only once for the club and converted 6% of shots.

England worldwide Young netted twice in six first-half minutes at a freezing Vicarage Road on Tuesday, with Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard also on target.
