Marouane Fellaini & Watford
According to the Manchester Evening News, the latest player to pull out of the Watford game is Marouane Fellaini.
M.E.N report that Fellaini wasn’t on the train ferrying Man United’s squad to London on Monday night.
It’s unclear why Fellaini wasn’t with the travelling party.
Last weekend the Belgian came off the bench during the 1-0 win over Brighton.
My theory about which of Jose's Giants will turn out for Utd tonight at Watford immediately blown out of the water: Fellaini hasn't travelled I'm told…

Three other Man United stars are out
Aside from Fellaini, three other players were nowhere to be seen with the Red Devils squad.
They were Eric Bailly and Phil Jones, who have been missing through injury, and Henrikh Mkhitaryan.
Mkhitaryan’s absence is worrying for the Armenian captain. He started the season on top form at Old Trafford, but Jose Mourinho has axed the playmaker in recent weeks.
That’s lead to speculation Mkhitaryan could return to Borussia Dortmund in the near future.
The Mkhitaryan situation is reminiscent of Shinji Kagawa’s spell at Old Trafford.
Mesut Ozil update
One transfer rumour which has been receiving plenty of air time recently is the claim Mesut Ozil could join Man United from Arsenal.
Ian Wirght even suggested the transfer was a “shoo-in” on BBC radio on Monday.
Yet, the M.E.N have wade in on that topic too to dash hopes the German World Cup winner will reconnect with Mourinho. They’ve announced:
MEN Sport understands United have not shown an interest and, contrary to reports, Ozil has not told his team-mates he is leaving for Old Trafford.
