Manchester United vs Watford live stream: How to watch FA Cup tie online and on TV tonight

Manchester United welcome Watford to Old Trafford in the FA Cup looking to bounce back after a midweek Carabao Cup semi-final defeat to rivals Manchester City.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will hope to advance to the fourth round of the cup as he chases silverware, though there has already been a boost since the defeat to City after signing Ivorian wonderkid Amad Diallo from Atalanta.

It’s been a painful run of semi-final defeats for the Norwegian since taking charge at Old Trafford, and this competition could represent the best opportunity to break his duck.

United may still look to rotate their squad, given the need for the likes of Donny Van de Beek to gain minutes as United contend in Europe and in a potential title challenge, with the opportunity to go clear of champions Liverpool with their game in hand.

Solskjaer confirmed United’s intent for the game and the competition in genera: “We entered this competition wanting to win. That’s what we want to. There are a few players who had a few knocks and there will be a few changes, but we’ll still field a team that I feel confident in.”
