When is Watford v Man United and is it on TV? Kick off time, how to watch and prediction

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.

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
