- De Gea twice saved Sarr’s punishment endeavours in the main half.
- More wretchedness was stored on overwhelmed Manchester United director Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on Saturday as Watford fixed a merited Premier League triumph before a pressed Vicarage Road.
In a charging first half, United couldn’t manage the high squeezing of an efficient Hornets side and immediately wound up in peril when Scott McTominay packaged forward Joshua King inside the case.
In any case, United goalkeeper David de Gea acted the hero as the Spaniard saved not one, but rather two Ismaila Sarr punishments. Every one of the Senegal winger’s endeavours was agreeable yet Kiko Femenia figured out how to divert in the bounce back from the main spot-kick, just for the objective to be precluded due to player infringement from the two groups.

In the withering snapshots of the game, to the pleasure of the uproarious Watford devoted, Joao Pedro and Dennis added a third and fourth to heap more awfulness on the voyaging United allies.
The loss implies United have tumbled down the table to seventh on 17 focuses, while Claudio Ranieri’s side is just four focuses behind them in sixteenth.

It is not yet clear precisely what the 13-time Premier League support full goals are this mission, however a loss without wanting to just add more fuel to the strain pit Solskjaer ends up in.
After Manchester City travelled to triumph at Old Trafford a fortnight prior, the Norwegian said his group had “dealt with a couple of things” this week to stop t
