Manchester United return to Premier League action after the international break against Watford this weekend.

United need a response after the humbling defeat in the Manchester City as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer faces increasing scrutiny over his position.

What time does Watford v Man Utd kick-off?

Watford v United will kick off at 3pm on Saturday 20th November.

The Hornets recently appointed Claudio Ranieri as their manager to replace Xisco Munoz.

Is Watford v Man Utd on TV?

No, as it is a 3pm kick-off, the game cannot be shown. Neither Sky Sports nor BT Sport are showing the game live.

Why isn’t Watford v Man Utd on TV?

The game has not been selected for live broadcast, which is a rarity for a United match.

There is an agreed blackout which means 3pm kick-offs on a Saturday cannot be shown live.

How to watch Watford vs Man Utd

United fans will need to wait until Match of the Day on BBC1 at 10:30pm for extended highlights of the game.

Sky Sports’ YouTube channel does tend to upload Premier League highlights earlier than that too.


Our prediction

United need a big performance and a big result against a side struggling at the wrong end of the table.

After a period of really tough fixtures, Solskjaer will be looking at this game as a real opportunity to make a statement.

That does not mean that Watford can be taken lightly and Ranieri is trying to make his mark at the club.

But United simply have to win and put in a convincing performance to show the right response to the recent awful run.

Even a win here would not answer all the criticism of Solskjaer and the players but it is the minimum which is to be expected.

Our prediction: Watford 0-2 United
