Manchester United triumph over Watford at Vicarage Road as they left with a 2-1 win.
Romelu Lukaku, 35th-minute goal and Chris Smalling’s 38th-minute goal were able to stop Watford from winning five games out of five as they suffer their first defeat.
A defeat for United would have seen them suffer three losses in their opening five Premier League games for the first time, but they picked up where they left off against Burnley prior to the international break, professionally dealing with an in-form Watford side.
Although the hosts initially looked bright, United finished the first half utterly dominant and 2-0 up thanks to Romelu Lukaku and Chris Smalling, whose goals were three minutes and 11 seconds apart.
Watford at least made things interesting with a 65th-minute Andre Gray strike, but United dug deep and fended off the home side’s late advances to seal the points despite Nemanja Matic’s red card deep into stoppage time.
