Watford Thrash Man United to Pile Misery on Solskjaer

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer suffered more misery as the Devils were humiliated 4-1 by Watford.

The Hornets should have gone ahead when Scott McTominay bundled over forward Joshua King inside the box, but goalkeeper David de Gea saved Ismaila Sarr’s penalty – then kept out his retake, ordered by the referee for encroachment..

Joshua King opened the scoring thanks to Emmanuel Dennis’ assist, before Sarr atoned for his penalty failures by sending a right-footed shot across Man United goalkeeper David De Gea to make it 2-0.

In the second half, United’s forgotten man Donny van de Beek – on as a substitute for the booked McTominay – pulled one back from Cristiano Ronaldo’s knock down following England winger Jadon Sancho’s searching cross.

But the nightmare continued for Solskjaer as Maguire was booked twice in seven minutes and sent off.

United looked to have a sliver of hope with 13 minutes left when the lively Van de Beek found Ronaldo with a through ball, but the Portugal captain’s goal was ruled out for offside.

In the closing moments, to the delight of the loud Watford faithful, Joao Pedro added a third goal before Dennis made it 4-1.
