For the first time in weeks, Martial looked happy.

Fellaini signed a one-year contract extension at United last month and said he was targeting Champions League football this season and the Premier League title next.

United has spent about 500 million pounds (US$628 million) on new players under David Moyes, Louis van Gaal and current manager Jose Mourinho, although the club hasn't finished in the top three of the English Premier League in the last three seasons.

"We needed to win", he said, as quoted by BBC Sport.

During a disastrous last season of Chelsea, Willian was the only positive ray of hope who was also their player of the season 2015-16. The most significant of United's recent moves involved the sale of midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin to Everton. Some players will leave, some players will come, but in a very natural way.

"Chelsea are very good defensive team", Mourinho told reporters. He is playing with his brain.

"They are a very good team, for sure", the Italian said through an interpreter.

"It is a pity because we started very well". But we lost points, we drew a lot.

GM workers to receive profit-sharing checks of up to $12000
The stock tumbled 4.7 percent in early trading in part because Wall Street fretted over GM's higher US inventories. Stevens said earnings in 2017 would be flat or up slightly from 2016, driven by more big numbers in North America.

And United gave a fitting performance in honour of the players who lost their lives.

Watford have never kept a clean sheet at Old Trafford.

Keeping a calm head, Martial slotted the ball home to make the points safe for United.

Watford, though, threatened on the break and Holebas sent one swerving effort just wide. Martial scored the second goal against Watford to give United an unassailable 2-Nil lead. But referee Bobby Madley ordered the set-piece to be retaken, ruling it had been taken too quickly.

However, The Hornets did much better in the second half, holding United in the middle of the ground and moving forward as well, though occasionally.

Ibrahimovic nearly extended United's lead on 64 minutes only to see his shot deflect off a Watford defender for a corner.

The hosts continued to pile on the pressure throughout the half but Gomes was doing what many goalkeepers had been doing at Old Trafford all season by making two brilliant saves to deny Paul Pogba from opening the scoring.

The contributions of M'Baye Niang, Mauro Zarate and Tom Cleverley - the club's January signings - have helped turn things around and Mazzarri is confident there is more to come from his players.
