Picking the Best Potential Watford Lineup to Face Manchester United on Saturday

Watford return to Premier League action following their surprise 2-1 win over Tottenham with another tricky fixture, this time against Manchester United.


Not many changes are expected from Javi Gracia, who has led his side to four consecutive league victories during the early stages of the campaign.


Here's how they could look on Saturday evening against the Red Devils.

1. Goalkeeper & Defenders

Ben Foster (GK) - The veteran shot stopper will need to be at his best to keep out Romelu Lukaku, who scored another bucketload of goals for Belgium during the international break.


Daryl Janmaat (RB) - The Netherlands international has one assist so far this season and should feature here.


Craig Cathcart (CB) - The Northern Irishman scored the winner against Tottenham and should keep his place.


Christian Kabasele (CB) - The Begian has earned some admirers for his early season performances and will most likely start against United.


Jose Holebas (LB) - The 34-year-old has a staggering four assists already this season, along with a goal, and will feature again here.

2. Midfielders

Etienne Capoue (CM) - The Frenchman netted seven league goals for the Hornets during the 2016/17 season and will want to get back to that goalscoring form this term.


Abdoulaye Doucoure (CM) - Considered one of the best central midfielders in the Premier League outside of the top six, Doucoure needs a big game on Saturday.


Roberto Pereyra (AM) - The Argentina international already has three league goals this season and is Watford's most prominent creative threat.


Will Hughes (AM) - The former Derby midfielder will like drift in from the right and look to cause United problems with his neat interplay.

3. Forwards

Andre Gray (ST) - The former Burnley forward has one league goal in his first four games and will look to improve that record on Saturday.


Troy Deeney (ST) - The Watford legend netted the equaliser against Spurs and loves a match against the Premier League's bigger teams.
