Two injuries & Diogo Dalot’s debut: Man United team news vs Watford

Watford vs Manchester United

Manchester United take on high-flying Watford in the late Premier League on Saturday.

No-one predicted Watford’s amazing start to the season.

Along with Liverpool and Chelsea, Javi Gracia’s Hornets are joint-top of the league. They have four wins from four games.

As for Man United, they have two wins and two defeats from their opening matches.

Last time out Man United beat Burnley 2-0 at Turf Moor.

Diogo Dalot’s Man United debut vs Watford

Could the teenager make his Man United bow this weekend?

Diogo Dalot has attracted attention this week after he posted the following positive update on social media.

Dalot moved to Old Trafford in the summer from FC Porto.

The youngster has been tipped to be Antonio Valencia’s long term replacement at right-back.

However Dalot also has the reputation of being able to play anywhere along the backline.

Luke Shaw & Marouane Fellaini

Luke Shaw will miss the Watford match.

Shaw suffered a scary head injury during England’s defeat to Spain in the UEFA Nations League.

Under the concussion protocol, Shaw will now be sidelined for a week.

Marouane Fellaini is a doubt for the Watford match after he sustained a knock playing for Belgium. As reported on Man United’s website:

Marouane Fellaini sustained a minor back problem while training with the Belgium squad and returned to the Aon Training Complex after being ruled out of his side’s matches against Scotland and Iceland.

It is a setback for the towering midfielder who starred in United’s victory against Burnley before the international break. Phil Jones had to miss that game through injury.
