Man United Win Against Watford

Manchester United won 2-1 at Watford to start Saturday's Premier League action. The win sent them on top of the Premier League.

Manchester United went top of the Premier League as Troy Deeney's late own goal gave them victory at Watford.

Watford looked to have earned a point with a late penalty, but Bastian Schweinsteiger slid home the winner for United.

Memphis Depay - starting a Premier League match for the first time since 4 October - netted United's opener, volleying home an Ander Herrera cross.

Odion Ighalo and Etienne Capoue fired off target for the home side.

But, with just four minutes left, they made a breakthrough when Deeney smashed home after Marcos Rojo clumsily brought down Odion Ighalo.

The drama in an end-to-end second half was not over, though, as United pushed for a winner.

They got their reward as Jesse Lingard's ball across the box fell to Schweinsteiger, who slid it back across goal and Deeney bundled home.

The win took the Red Devils a point clear of rivals Manchester City, who face Liverpool at 17:30 GMT.
