Luke Shaw

Jose Mourinho has made only one change for the game against Watford, with Ashley Young coming into the Manchester United starting eleven to replace Luke Shaw.

Romelu Lukaku and Chris Smalling scored within three minutes of each other in the opening period, with Andre Gray netting in the second half for the Hornets, but they could not maintain their 100 per cent start to the season.

The Red Devils are back to winning ways after following up their victory over Burnley before the global break with another against Watford at Vicarage Road yesterday.

With Deeney's bruising, punishing style more than capable of pulverising United's vulnerable centre, Fellaini dropped deep to shield the central defenders to the point where he was nearly indistinguishable from them.

The Manchester United forward was given two starts due to Raheem Sterling withdrawing from the squad with a back problem, and took full advantage of his chance to impress Southgate, who is full of praise for the player. But De Gea had lots of time as he watched it into his hands comfortably. The Watford goalkeeper would stop Paul Pogba on the doorstep in stoppage time to limit the deficit to two heading into halftime.

Though United were less solid in the second half and Watford had much more luck in attack, Fellaini was still the man roaring out of the box to clear loose balls and hooking away Jose Holebas' lethal in-swinging corners.

That is what United centre backs Chris Smalling and Victor Lindelof had on Saturday.
