Michael Owen is tipping Watford to frustrate Manchester United and hold the Red Devils to a draw in their Premier League clash on Saturday evening.

The Red Devils have made something of a mixed start to the new season under Jose Mourinho, with Manchester United having already slipped to two defeats in their opening four games.

Manchester United lost to both Tottenham and Brighton and Hove Albion, before bouncing back to winning ways with a 2-0 victory at Burnley before the international break.

Mourinho’s men will now be looking to make it back to back wins in the top flight when the Red Devils take on Watford at Vicarage Road this weekend.

However, former Liverpool FC star Owen is tipping Manchester United to struggle, and he feels that Watford will take at least a point from the game.

Writing in his column for Bet Victor, Owen said: “Watford couldn’t have wished for a better start to the season and manager Javi Gracia, who had been favourite to be the first Premier League manager to lose/leave his post, was a worthy winner of the Manager of the Month for August.

“Watford fans will be hoping that is not the kiss of death, but there looks no reason to desert the Hornets just yet.

“United got a valuable win at Turf Moor last time but they won’t relish a trip to Vicarage Road and I expect the resurgent hosts to get at least a point from the game.”

Manchester United will be looking to challenge for the Premier League title this season after the Red Devils finished in second place in the table last term and without a trophy.

The Red Devils have not won the Premier League title since their famous final triumph under Sir Alex Ferguson back in 2013.
