A fine solo strike from Jesse Lingard assured United of victory and three points which could prove vital come the end of the season.

Given Ashley Young's not scored two goals in a Premier League game since 2012, there will have been more than a few people who raised their eyebrows at the makeshift Manchester United left wing-back finding the back of the net twice in spectacular fashion against Watford, tonight.

Watford made it a nervy finish for the Red Devils at the death after second-half goals from Troy Deeney and Abdoulaye Doucoure.

After seeing his victor against Brighton on Saturday go down as an own goal, the opener was Young's first league strike since May 2016.

Watford head coach Marco Silva also sent on midfielder Andre Carrillo, shifting to a back four, and his side began to look more risky, Richarlison heading wide from another Femenia cross.

The first time they successfully fed the Belgian, he played in Lingard, whose pass to Young was thrashed home by the former Watford man to give the visitors the lead. "I was there from when I was 10 to 21", the England global said.

Doucoure was booked for fouling Paul Pogba and Young clinically dispatched a 25-yard free-kick with unerring accuracy.

Christian Kabasele did not get enough purchase on a clearing header and Lukaku intelligently volleyed the ball into the path of Martial, who adroitly steered a low shot past Heurelho Gomes.

Manchester United midfielder Nemanja Matic was forced off early in the second half with what appeared to be a leg injury.

The hosts' reduced their deficit to one with six minutes to play as Doucoure turned in Andre Carrillo's cross with a first-timed shot to put the pressure on United.
