Enhanced Odds: 33/1 on Watford or 7/1 on Man Utd

Premier League Ashley Young’s superb brace lifts Man Utd to a 4-2 win over Watford

The in-demand Watford boss is close friends with Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho and knows it would be another sizeable feather his cap if he can topple his country's greatest managerial export.

Nonetheless, with Silva and his men preparing to welcome Manchester United to Vicarage Road on Tuesday night, speculation continues to surround the Watford manager's future.

Only a Lewis Dunk own goal managed to slash the gap to five points with a narrow 1-0 win over Brighton & Hove Albion, which was put back up to eight on Sunday as City just managed to grind out a2-1 victory over Huddersfield Town. But Young, who got the victor against Brighton on Saturday, is hoping that will change against his former club at Vicarage Road.

"In the Champions League (against Basel), we played some of the best football away from home in the first half and could have been 6-0, but it was 0-0", he said. Marco Silva's side underwent a slump in late October and early November, losing three successive league games.

Mourinho does not have happy memories of Vicarage Road, where he saw United succumb to a 3-1 defeat on their last visit to Watford in September past year. They haven't lost three successive league away games since January 1996.

Ashley Young, who scored Man United's victor on Saturday, spent 12 years at Watford.

'Of course I love going back there. With the Manchester derby at Old Trafford looming on December 10, Mourinho says he will be happy to pick up points however they are obtained.

The 3-0 win will have Hornets fans buzzing as the team climbed to eighth and within three points of Tottenham - establishing Marco Silva's men, alongside Burnley, as this season's surprise contenders to break the top six hegemony.

Everton continue to pursue Silva, and it is not too hard to understand why the Toffees are so keen on a manager that has introduced an exciting brand of football to the Watford supporters.

You have to go back to September for United's last away Premier League win, and Watford's recent victories over West Ham and Newcastle suggest taking maximum points from Vicarage Road will be no easy task for Mourinho.

"I still do know a few [there] and I've still got friends who work there". I think they have a squad full of very good players, that are not normal to be a mid-table team.
