Even though they didn’t give De Gea much to think about on the other end of the pitch, Watford looked far more solid.

Ronaldo thought he has scored for United in 30th minute, but his strike hit the right side of the post, while Fernandes got the closest to scoring for United, missing two one-on-one opportunities.

In the first half, the Red Devils United had 67% possession and ten shots, seven of which were within the box but just one of which was on target.
