Dublin is also aware that Manchester United can not afford mistakes in the title race because of the way Manchester City have been playing this season.

United slowly grew into the game, although they struggled to link up with Romelu Lukaku.

He wrote on Twitter: "My theory about which of Jose's Giants will turn out for Utd tonight at Watford immediately blown out of the water: Fellaini hasn't travelled I'm told".

Ashley Young struck twice against former club Watford as Manchester United won a thrilling contest at Vicarage Road to close to within five points of leaders Manchester City.

Mourinho is expecting a tough test tonight.

Watford made it a nervy finish for the Red Devils at the death after second-half goals from Troy Deeney and Abdoulaye Doucoure.

GETTY Jose Mourinho's Man Utd got a bloody nose at Watford last season

That period remains the lowest ebb of Mourinho's Old Trafford reign and the United boss is aware just how hard it will be to exact revenge on Tuesday evening.

The last Watford goalkeeper to keep a clean sheet against Manchester United in a competitive fixture was Tony Coton; in a 1-0 win back in September 1986 at Vicarage Road. They have a squad full of very good players who are not normal to be in these mid-table teams.

The severity of the injury is unknown, but there appeared to be little reason to take any chances with the midfielder as a first-half double by Ashley Young put United up early against Watford, with Anthony Martial adding a third before the half.

It should have been even worse for Watford at the break, but Gomes saved well from Lukaku before jumping to his feet to make an even better stop from Lingard's follow-up effort.

They're one of the worst defensive teams in the league and haven't shown much of an inclination or ability to stop teams. They have a good coach.

After starting the season in fine form, regularly scoring four goals past their opponents, the goals have seemingly dried up over the last few months, with only Newcastle United being out to the sword in recent times.
