Manchester United moved back into the Premier League top four, as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer began his reign as permanent manager with a 2-1 win over Watford at Old Trafford.
Goals from Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial were enough to ensure all three points, as Watford threatened to halt United, and eventually grabbed a late goal from Abdoulaye Doucoure. However, it was a little too late, and United safely held on for all three points.

United may have secured the win, but Luke Shaw very well knows it was a lucky escape, as they could have easily lost the game, having failed to make good use of their chances.
Speaking to BBC Sport, he said: “We made it harder with the way we played. There were times when we weren’t at our best.
“We were awful in the second half, we were lucky with the result. The most important thing is the three points.
“We had a few chances but we didn’t take them. We need to get ourselves together again and focus on Wolves. We want to go there and get the win.
“I’m always confident when Rashford’s in front of goal, he likes to get in behind, it was a great finish and great composure.
“We need to forget about the game today because we were not at our best at all.
“We feel really good and confident, and fully trust Ole, and we’re looking forward to working with him for the years to come.”
