Manchester United picked up a 1-0 win over Watford in the FA Cup earlier tonight.

Scott McTominay scored the only goal of the game on the 5th minute and Manchester United managed to defend their advantage for the remainder of the game.

The Red Devils have now managed to book their place in the fourth round of the competition and they will be hoping to go all the way this season.

The home side were without Paul Pogba, Luke Shaw and Victor Lindelof due to injury issues here.  Furthermore, Eric Bailly had to be taken off with a head injury during the game. 

The FA Cup is probably Manchester United’s best chance of winning a trophy this season and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will demand a big performance from his players in the next round.

The  home side started the game brightly and they played some impressive football. Manchester United managed to create quite a few chances at the start of the game and they managed to take the lead as well.

However, Watford got back into the game soon after and managed to make things difficult for the Manchester United attack.

The championship outfit defended well after conceding the first goal and they could have easily ground out a result here.

Watford have not won at Old Trafford since 1978 and they will be disappointed to come away with the defeat once again. They had the chances to get on the score sheet and Watford will be disappointed with their finishing.

Manchester United take on Liverpool in the Premier League next time out and they will have to improve their performance if they want to pick up all three points against the Premier League champions.
