Before the game, Old Trafford also fell silent to remember the late, great Harry Gregg. This was United’s first home match since the death of former Manchester United and Northern Ireland goalkeeper, a hero of the Munich air disaster, at the age of 87.
“Forever red, forever loved, forever grateful” read a giant banner displayed in the Stretford End during an impeccably-observed minute’s silence.
Watford started strongly and had a good chance in the opening five minutes due to a mix up between Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelof.

Watford thought they were level at Old Trafford only to see the goal ruled out by VAR for handball.
