Watford Destroy Manchester United! Solskjær Shown the Door!

King, Sarr, Pedro, and Dennis all find the net for the hosts, as Solskjær loses his job!

Manchester United limped to a 4-1 loss against Watford on Saturday. This was the Red Devils’ fourth defeat in their last five English Premier League (EPL) games.

Harry Maguire saw red in the second half, with David De Gea also saving two penalties in a frenetic encounter at Vicarage Road.

Midfielder Scott McTominay handed Watford an early chance to take the lead as he fouled opposing striker, Joshua King, in the 18-yard box.

Ismaïla Sarr missed the resulting spot-kick, but defender Kiko Femenía was quickest off the mark to fire home the rebound. However, the goal was ruled out by VAR, for encroaching in the penalty area.

Watford, who dominated for much of the first half, got a well-deserved lead on 28 minutes, as King slotted home after clever play from striker Emmanuel Dennis.

The hosts then doubled their lead just before half-time with a deflected strike from Sarr.

Midfielder Donny Van de Beek came off the bench at the break and got his side back in the game, nodding the ball into an empty net, after good link-up play with Cristiano Ronaldo.

Things then went from bad to worse for United, as captain Maguire was sent off on 69 minutes after picking up a second yellow card for a mistimed challenge on former United midfielder, Tom Cleverley.

Watford striker, João Pedro, removed any doubt in the final moments of the game, with a stoppage-time goal before Dennis added a fourth just after.

The result means that Manchester United move down to 7th place in the EPL table, on 17 points. Watford are in 16th, on 13.

The latest news is that Solskjær has been sacked from his role as United manager. Michael Carrick will take charge until the club appoint an interim manager.
