Jose Mourinho expects another tough test from Watford

"We always play with the same confidence and try to score and win matches".

Everton suffered yet another heavy defeat at the weekend, going down 4-1 to Southampton away from home at St. Mary's Stadium in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon. Many PayPal accepted sites would give you some great odds for this game as both sides are in good form.

Luckless ex-Sunderland loanee Yedlin was credited with an own goal as the Tynesiders succumbed again, following losses to Manchester United, Bournemouth and Burnley. They can not afford to lose any more ground at least until they face the league-leaders themselves at home in two weeks' time.

"Of course I'd like to emulate him", the 40-year-old said of Mourinho.

"I think (United will improve as he improves)", Mourinho said of Pogba after Saturday's 1-0 win. "Marcus [Rashford] and [Anthony] Martial, [are] without the tactical knowledge that another player has to close the spaces in between the full-back and winger so, even with Paul, we were a little bit in trouble".

Defenders Craig Cathcart (knee) and Younes Kaboul (hamstring), midfielder Nathaniel Chalobah (knee) and forward Isaac Success (knee) are likely to miss out once more. We are not thinking about the next two or three games, we are thinking about the next. Centre-halves Eric Bailly and Phil Jones are still recovering and Michael Carrick who has recently had a minor cardiac procedure will miss out on the trip down South to Watford.

"I wanted to take him out but I felt the points were still there to fight for".

Man United have won 9 of their last 10 matches against Watford in all competitions.

That status was hard to imagine back in September when Manchester City hit six at Vicarage Road without reply.

Richarlison has been involved in seven goals in his last eight Premier League appearances for Watford (four goals, three assists).

The Magpies slumped to a fourth successive Premier League defeat when they were humbled 3-0 by Watford at St James' Park on Saturday, and the fact that they have scored just one goal in the process is a major concern for manager Rafael Benitez.

The Frenchman has made an assured comeback to the side, dominating games in midfield and affecting the way United approach a football match. And I've still got friends who work there.
