Premier League | Vicarage Road | Attendance: 21,118 | Scorers: Capoue 34, Zuniga 83, Deeney 90+5 (pen) | Rashford 62
At the English Premier League matchup between Watford and the star-studded Manchester United on Sunday September 18, 2016 at Vicarage Road! Warford pummeled their host – most disgracefully! Watford substitute Juan Camilo Zuniga made a decisive impact when he came in at the near-tail end of the clash. Watford earned a 3-1 triumph against Manchester United at Vicarage Road when the South American struck and put Watford 2-1 in front..
The Red Devils had no answer and as I watched the match I saw another goal coming just before it came because of the lack of momentum, zeal, determination and loyalty from the United side. United battled back through Marcus Rashford’s leveler after falling behind to a controversial opener by Etienne Capoue in the first half – and finally, the third goal which I had seen before it happened, happened as a result of my reasons of lack of so and so above.
Jose Mourinho who looked very sad and ordinary made five changes to the United side with Chris Smalling and Marcus Rashford selected for their first Premier League starts. Paul Pogba was again a pathetic spectacle as he fumbled in the midfield, his £89 million price tag notwithstanding.

Jose Mourinho is steadily looking like he is going to fail at Old Trafford – just as he failed at Stamford Bridge.
I’m lost for words.
However, I’m still a Red Devil!
