Watford vs Manchester United: Line-up: Boss Uses STRONG 4-2-3-1 Formation

Quique Sánchez Flores and his men play host to the Red Devils at Vicarage Road as Manchester United set to tackle Watford in Saturday’s Premier League lunch-time kickoff.

Sanchez Flores will be without Sebastian Prodl for the home clash against Man United, with the Austria international picking up a calf injury against Switzerland on Tuesday night.

He had been out of favour anyway though, with Miguel Britos partnering Craig Cathcart in central defence over recent weeks. Those two should keep their starting berths then, while Nathan Ake and Allan Nyom are likely to start at left-back and right-back respectively.

Nyom didn’t feature for Cameroon over the international break due to some paperwork issues, and could be made unavailable by his national team, although that isn’t a likely scenario. Ben Watson has partnered Etienne Capoue in central midfield in recent weeks, but Valon Behrami offers a strong alternative in the middle of the park.

Jurado looks set to be available having trained for the past ten days, but he may not be rushed straight back into the starting XI, meaning Ikechi Anya and Almen Abdi could continue in the wide positions in the 4-2-3-1 formation, with Troy Deeney playing just behind lone striker Odion Ighalo.

The Nigerian did only return back to the club on Thursday, but is expected to lead the line for the Hornets.

Alessandro Diamanti and Juan Carlos Paredes provide alternative options. Joel Ekstrand (knee) remains out.
