​David de Gea has been in fine form this season and will be hoping for a shut out come Tuesday night. United have received many plaudits this season in defence, mostly due to the Spaniard's heroics.

As one of the best defences in the league, this back four will be hoping to keep yet another clean sheet this season come kick off. Swedish international Victor Lindelof was impressive last time out against Brighton, after a shaky first few months at the club raised question marks over the defender.​

​In midfield, Jesse Lingard is set to come in to the fold, with United looking to attack Watford from the wings. Armenian Henrikh Mkhitaryan is still out of favor under Mourinho and after a positive display against Brighton, Juan Mata is set to continue is his best position. 


The return of Paul Pogba has already proved to be important for United, with the midfielder rekindling his impressive relationship with Serbian Nemanja Matic.

​With the return of Swedish icon Zlatan Ibrahimovic it is time for Belgian forward Romelu Lukaku to show that he is the main man up top and that his early season form was no fluke.


A goal against Newcastle will give the big man confidence that he can net against the Hornets come Tuesday.
