Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is likely glad to have had an interruption to the domestic game thanks to the international break, after receiving heavy criticism for some painful defeats to rivals earlier this month.

They are back on the pitch this weekend though, away to Watford, and nothing other than a comfortable win will avoid the same comments and questions coming back his way, with United sixth in the Premier League table.

Watford linger just outside the relegation zone after four defeats in five games, though Claudio Ranieri did pick up his first victory as boss in the hammering of Everton three games ago - he’s yet to win on home soil, though.

Four of the league’s bottom five have now appointed new managers this season - three of them across the course of the international break, so Ranieri has to find results fast.

Here’s everything you need to know ahead of the match.

When is the match?

The game kicks off at 3pm on Saturday 20 November at Vicarage Road.
