- Match Analysis
Despite Manchester United’s underwhelming start to the season Watford boss Javi Gracia has rubbished suggestions the Red Devils are in crisis. Watford are scheduled to take on United in a mouth watering clash at Vicarage Road.
Jose Mourinho has a tough task to cut out against an in form Watford who have been the surprise package this season. Despite keeping the cheque book in the drawer the Hornets have been flying in the Premier League registering four wins out of four.
The departure of Richarlison seemed to be a major setback but Gracia has dealt with the matter as he has used his limited resources quite beautifully.
On the contrary Jose Mourinho has struggled following back to back defeats against Brighton & Hove Albion and Tottenham Hotspur although United appeared to have shown glimpses of their form by getting back to winning ways against Burnley in the last match.
Gracia said, “I don’t understand that word “crisis”. I don’t know if they are in crisis.
“I only know they have a very good squad and they can choose different players, most of them internationals.
“I’m sure they play with 11 very good players and it will be very hard for us.
“But at this moment, playing at home, we feel we have the confidence to compete and to try to get points.
‘The results help us to feel we can do it, but I know it’s only the feeling, because you have to do many things to win.”
