Manchester United 2-1 Watford
Manchester United gave Ole Gunnar Solskjaer a winning start as their permanent manager as they won 2-1 at home to Watford.
The hosts showed four changes to the side who lost 2-0 at Arsenal, with Anthony Martial, Ander Herrera, Juan Mata and Phil Jones replacing Romelu Lukaku, Fred, Diogo Dalot and Victor Lindelof.
Watford also made four alterations, with Kiko Femenia, Tom Cleverley, Isaac Success and Andre Gray replaced by Gerard Deulofeu, Will Hughes, Roberto Pereyra and Troy Deeney.
The visitors made a positive start at Old Trafford, with Abdoulaye Doucoure shooting wide from eight yards out with six minutes on the clock.
Six minutes later David de Gea had to push away a Deeney header after a patient Watford attack culminated in Daryl Janmaat lifting over a fine cross from the right side of the area.
United finally threatened soon after but Luke Shaw was unable to direct his cross to the unmarked Marcus Rashford a couple of yards out.
And 28 minutes in the Red Devils hit the front as Shaw more than made amends by threading a superb throughball in to Rashford, who calmly lifted his finish over the advancing Ben Foster.
Foster then denied Martial with a superb reaction save as the hosts began to dominate before Rashford rounded the keeper, only to find the angle too tight to get in a shot.
Early in the second half Janmaat lashed a shot high over the crossbar from just inside the area before De Gea got down smartly to push away a low drive from Pereyra.
The Hornets continued to enjoy plenty of possession but were unable to carve out any further clear chances. And with just under 20 minutes to play the hosts made the score 2-0 with a scruffy effort eventually bundled home by Martial, whose initial effort was blocked by Foster before the French forward netted from the rebound.
In the final minute of normal time Doucoure pulled a goal back, finishing coolly after playing the ball into the area himself and collecting a flick from sub Isaac Success, but the home side held on to claim the three points and move up to fourth place.
