EPL: Man United beat Watford to ease pressure on Mourinho

Jamie Carragher was speaking on Sky Sports after England's win over Switzerland on Tuesday

Mourinho's side secured their second straight win beating the Hornets at Vicarage Road.

"I am very happy with the spirit", United manager Jose Mourinho said.

Manchester United will be aiming to be one of the main contenders for the Premier League title this season as they bid to try and bounce back from their trophyless campaign last term.

Watford created a goal in the 65th minute with Gray granted plenty of space to hit a cutback cross from Abdoulaye Doucoure past De Gea.

Romelu Lukaku and Chris Smalling scored within a span of three minutes for United, who ended Watford's attempt to win their opening five games for the first time.

"I'm going to do something, not for you but for the United fans, because I think I hold myself to the United fans and, for them, I am going to spend two minutes with you", he began. I feel a bit frustrated because we had everything in the first half.

"So we have got to give Marcus time to develop".

The left-back was a doubt for the game after suffering a head injury on global duty with England and medical staff have decided the clash at Vicarage Road on Saturday evening is too early for his return.

US imposed new sanctions against Russian companies
The U.S. said that the companies targeted are also linked to the organizations involved in North's weapons program. It comes as the USA is redoubling efforts to pressure North Korea to give up its nuclear weapons program.

The Manchester United forward was given two starts due to Raheem Sterling withdrawing from the squad with a back problem, and took full advantage of his chance to impress Southgate, who is full of praise for the player.

Midway through the half Alexis Sanchez had the ball in the net but it was ruled out for offside, and minutes later the Chilean forced a fine save from Watford goalkeeper Ben Foster following a jinking run.

If the Mourinho era at United were a rom-com - which it absolutely is not - Fellaini would be the leading man.

The relationship between manager and his high-profile midfielder has been one of the many testing issues Mourinho has faced this season and dates back to before Pogba scoring in the World Cup final in July.

But like he's done many times previously, David De Gea came to United's rescue with a stunning save in the 94th minute.

That is what United centre backs Chris Smalling and Victor Lindelof had on Saturday.

But from the first whistle United looked like the team in form, dominating possession and territory early on even if they seemed to have little threat in the final third as the home side defended compactly and left the Reds depending largely on crosses from wide positions. If we scored in the last minutes, maybe it would have been a draw and it would have been a very good result for us, but we tried and I think it is a line we need to keep for the next few games.
