Manchester United 1-0 Watford: Scott McTominay leads FA Cup early winner at Old Trafford

Scott McTominay’s four-minute header was enough for Manchester United to win an unconvincing victory in a draw with Watford in the third round of the FA Cup on Saturday.

The host had a chance to increase the lead, but Juan Mata couldn’t find a great three-man move finish just before half-time, and Daniel James and substitute Marcus Rashford saved the shot after the break. ..

But none of these opportunities were better for Hornets goalkeeper Adam Masinay, who saw United keeper Dean Henderson hamper his efforts shortly after McTominay attacked.

Watford had other opportunities under his fifth manager, Xisco Munoz, for the first time in two years. Joao Pedro’s header went straight to Henderson, and Ken Sema was off his target.

Mason Greenwood and Donny van de Beek rarely claimed the usual starting slot, which was Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s first choice, but Jesse Lingard made his third appearance of the season. And has been the focus of interest from many clubs in the January transfer window-a glimpse of the form, but eventually faded.

United will take part in the fourth and fifth round draws on Monday, and Watford will focus on winning the Premier League promotion in the first attempt.

Bailly has no risk

Given the growing awareness of the effects of concussion, United’s medical staff decides not to risk with defender Eric Bailly when the keeper gets his head hooked on Henderson’s knee when he punches clear. Was welcomed.

The Football Association has so far wanted to introduce a concussion substitute, but it has not yet been introduced because the detailed protocol has not yet been received from Ifab, the world’s game rule maker.

When Bailly was guided towards the tunnel at the very end of the first half, Maguire replaced him with a clean sheet that ensured United would reach the 34th fourth round in the last 36 attempts. Helped to maintain.
