Young’s double leads Man United over Watford
Manchester United thrashed Watford at Vicarage Road thanks to an Ashley Young brace and a strike from Anthony Martial inside the opening half an hour of the contest.
Watford scored two late goals to put Jose Mourinho's side under some late pressure, but a Jesse Lingard wonder goal sealed the victory and points for the Red Devils.
The gap between Manchester United and Manchester City has now reduced to five points but Pep Guardiola's team can restore their eight-point lead against Southampton on Wednesday evening. Following a sluggish opening quarter of an hour from both sides the contest burst into life in the 19th minute when Ashley Young lashed a loose ball into the bottom left corner to give.
