Manchester United had now won the last ten meetings in all competitions, with Watford's last win coming in September 1986. As a mark of respect for the victims of the terrorist attacks on Paris the previous weekend, La Marseillaise, the French national anthem, was played before the start of this match. Premier League chief Richard Scudamore called it an act of “solidarity and remembrance” after the Paris attacks. Kick-off: 12.45pm

Comments:

League position: 13th Memphis Depay's goal was the first Watford had conceded in a first-half at Vicarage Road in all competitions since 24 January 2015. 12 of the 14 Premier League goals they had now conceded in this season had come in the second-half. This was the first time that the Hornets had suffered back-to-back league defeats since November 2014.

Comments:

League position: 2nd Manchester United now had the best defensive record in the Premier League in 2015-16, having conceded nine goals in 13 games. Troy Deeney's penalty was the first goal United had conceded in 642 playing minutes in all competitions. They had now lost only one of their last nine Premier League games (won six).
