Manchester United 2-0 Watford: Mata and Martial seal win for hosts

  |   Ghana News / World News

Anthony Martial marked his first Premier League start in almost a month with a goal and an assist as Manchester United beat Watford 2-0 on Saturday.

The 21-year-old set up Juan Mata's opener in the first half before doubling the lead following a slick counter-attack to give the home side only a fourth win in 10 league games at Old Trafford.

Starting on the left of an attacking 4-2-3-1 system, he provided the low cross to allow Mata to open the scoring after 32 minutes, just as the home fans began to grow frustrated, with United dominating but failing to convert chances.

Martial then capped a clever move with a stylish finish to make the points safe with half an hour left, as Mourinho's side preserved a record of having never lost to Watford at home in a league match.
