Watford vs Manchester United: Premier League Zlatan Ibrahimovic is pushing to start


Zlatan Ibrahimovic is pushing to start but Manchester United will have Romelu Lukaku available when they travel to Watford on Tuesday.

Lukaku looked to be potentially facing a suspension after appearing to kick out at Gaetan Bong during United's 1-0 win over Brighton at the weekend.

Jose Mourinho knows Manchester United have little room for error as they travel to Watford on Tuesday night.

United were largely unimpressive during Saturday's 1-0 Premier League victory over Brighton, with Mourinho admitting his side are far from their best form of late.

Neighbours and title rivals Man City won late on against Huddersfield on Sunday to restore their eight-point advantage over United at the top of the table, and any more slip-ups from the Red Devils could effectively end their title hopes before the New Year.




A trip to Marco Silva's in-form Watford, therefore, comes at a tricky time for United - especially as the Red Devils were comprehensively beaten 3-1 by the Hornets at Vicarage Road last season.

Start time

Watford host Manchester United at Vicarage Road with kick-off scheduled for 8pm on Tuesday, November 28.

TV and live online coverage

The match will be shown live on BT Sport 1 and BT Sport 4K UHD, with coverage from 7:15pm.

BT Sport subscribers will be able to stream the match online via the video player and the BT Sport app.
