Comments:

League position: 8th Watford failed in their attempt to win three consecutive games in the Premier League for the second time (previously in December 2015). They had now conceded 39 goals in their 12 games in the Premier League in 2017 against last season's top six teams. Troy Deeney had now scored 11 of the 12 penalties he had taken in the Premier League, including all three against Manchester United.

Comments:

League position: 2nd This was the first time that Manchester United had scored three goals in the first-half of a Premier League game since 6 November 2016 in a 3-1 win at Swansea City. This was the first time that Ashley Young had scored two goals in a Premier League game at Vicarage Road since playing for Watford against Fulham on 2 October 2006. United had now scored 32 goals and conceded eight after 14 games of this Premier League season. The goal difference of +24 was their best at this stage of a season since 2000-01 (+26).
