  • Paul Merson states his prediction for Man United v Watford

Faria, who leaves United after two years, was also at Mourinho's side during his two spells at Chelsea in the Premier League, and also assisted him at Porto, Inter Milan and Real Madrid.

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has backed Rui Faria to carve out a "successful career as a manager" following his long-serving assistant's decision to go it alone.

However, a draw was enough to ensure a second-place finish for United, and now they will aim to finish their league season with a win over Watford on Sunday.

United have a chance to send Faria out on a high when they face Chelsea in the FA Cup final next Saturday.

Watford have been a mixed bag this campaign.

United are favourites to win, and they are available at their best odds of 2/5 at Bet365.

The Red Devils won the League Cup and the Europa League last term.

Richarlison and Gerard Deulofeu will hope for recalls after being left out of the starting XI for their last match. So far the identity of the player leaving Old Trafford has not been revealed but it could be Anthony Martial.


United have won ten of their last eleven meetings with Watford in all competitions.

For the visitors, Troy Deeney is available at 9/2 odds at Betfred. Only Steven Gerrard, with four, has scored more spot-kicks against the Red Devils in the competition.

He needs no introduction.

United have now gone five years without a Premier League title, with Liverpool's wait for a domestic championship stretching back to 1990.

According to news outlet Don Balon, the Red side of Manchester is preparing a massive bid of £88 million (€100 million) plus one Manchester United player in order to negotiate a deal with Atletico Madrid for Griezmann. The midfielder has made 18 starts (23 apps) in the Premier League - with a solitary goal to his name.

Mourinho paid tribute to his long-time partner.

Carrick to score perhaps?
