Mason Greenwood is fit to start while David de Gea and Bruno Fernandes return as well, as Manchester United get set to take on Watford at Old Trafford.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has made six changes to the side that started in the 1-1 draw with Club Brugge in the UEFA Europa League as Manchester United prepare to lock horns with Watford at Old Trafford. The shuffles begin right at the back, with David de Gea coming in for Sergio Romero in goal.

One of the key changes comes in the form of a formation shift, with Solskjaer reverting to the 4-2-3-1. As a result, Brandon Williams drops out of the side, with Luke Shaw starting as the left-back. Victor Lindelof and Harry Maguire partner up at the heart of the Manchester United defence while Aaron Wan-Bissaka completes the back four that will provide cover to de Gea.

In the midfield double pivot, Nemanja Matic and Fred accompany each other, with Scott McTominay fit enough to make the matchday squad against Watford. Bruno Fernandes is deployed in an advanced midfield role and will reprise the no. 10 role.

Another key change sees Mason Greenwood return to the starting lineup after recovering from illness. Greenwood starts on the right side of the Manchester United attack, with Daniel James starting on the left. Fernandes will play off central striker Anthony Martial, meaning ex-Watford star Odion Ighalo still waits for his full Manchester United debut.
