Comments:

League position: 5th Manchester United had now been awarded ten penalties so far in this Premier League season (scored from six); more than any other team. The Red Devils avoided completing a run of three consecutive home games in the Premier League without scoring for the first time since May 2002. 18 year-old Mason Greenwood had now scored 11 goals in all competitions so far in this season.

Comments:

League position: 19th Following a run of winning three consecutive games in the Premier League, Watford were now without a win in their last five games in the division (lost three). The Hornets had now failed to score in two of their last ten games in the Premier League. They had now conceded three or more goals in two of their last 14 games in the Premier League. Troy Deeney scored after 52 minutes but the goal was disallowed after a VAR review due to a handball decision.
