"If you don't mind to lose a couple of minutes, I'm going to do something not for you but the United fans and I think I hold myself to the United fans and for them I am going to spend two minutes with you".

Jose Mourinho has made only one change for the game against Watford, with Ashley Young coming into the Manchester United starting eleven to replace Luke Shaw.

The hosts had won all four of their league outings before encountering United, who ended that 100 per cent start thanks to goals from Romelu Lukaku and Chris Smalling.

Some might say that Sanchez has not been successful because Mourinho has played him on the left wing and that he might do better if he is played as a centre-forward or as a second striker behind Lukaku.

"With this win we keep the same points as Spurs and Arsenal", he told the BBC.

Paul came back after the World Cup in the week before we started the Premier League, so we are together for about two months or so. He doesn't look out of place at this level, and I think he should go on loan.

Pogba is set to start against Watford at Vicarage Road on Saturday evening as United look to dent the host's flawless start to the season.

Manchester United travel to Vicarage Road in Saturday's late kick-off for what is sure to be a thrilling encounter with both sides having strong incentives to secure maximum points.




Sanchez next forced a great save out of Foster after a great run down the right flank saw the Chilean lash a shot towards the top of the net, but Foster managed to fling a hand up to tip the ball over.

United, backed by their vocal travelling fans, who regularly chanted the name of Mourinho, were establishing a foothold in the game and made their pressure count in the 35th minute.

Rashford will definitely be missing when Mourinho's men travel to Watford for their match on Sunday morning (Singapore time), though, as he begins a three-match ban.

This time Young's corner was sent deep into the box, with Marouane Fellaini's knock-down skilfully controlled on the chest by Smalling, with the defender then arrowing the ball past Foster from six yards.

Buoyant United then almost grabbed a third but Foster saved well from Pogba as Watford kept the score at 2-0 at the break.

While Fellaini missed the majority of the worldwide break with Belgium owing to a back problem, he had worked his way back to full fitness in time for United's meeting with a Watford side with four wins from four in the Premier League.

What is the team news?

Nemanja Matic was shown a second yellow card in the third minute of stoppage time.
