Shaw admits Man Utd 'awful' and 'lucky' to beat Watford

Shaw admits Man Utd 'awful' and 'lucky' to beat Watford”

Rashford concluded one of his team's few chances at the end of a rapid counterattack to give the hosts the lead in the 28th minute.

"They made it hard for us and it seemed as though we were still on holiday or the worldwide break". With manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer having just signed on fully with a three-year deal, United hopes to celebrate the signing with three points and continue to push Arsenal for that final Champions League spot.

Mourinho was often criticised for not giving Pogba enough licence to attack from midfield, but Solskjaer has now hinted at replicating the deep role he often plays for France in order to get him on the ball more often. We had 50-50 possession at home, so you are a bit disappointed with that.

'Paul is important for us and we couldn't keep the ball today.

"Watford started off really well and we struggled to get to grips with their tempo, " Solskjaer told Sky Sports.

The Hornets played large periods of the game on the front foot and had 20 shots compared to eight from United. We defended well, we had to because they were dominant, but I thought Chris and Jones especially were fantastic and kept us in it. I don't think you're giving them respect because they're a good side.

Both Sancho and Hudson-Odoi will be in demand though and any move for the latter could be impeded by Chelsea's transfer ban, and it's believed that United have earmarked none other than former winger and current Crystal Palace talisman Wilfried Zaha as a surprise option should they fail to land either of their two top targets. Juan (Mata) got into the game for us. "Some have been away and have come back OK".

Dalot is not a conventional right winger but he's the best option we've got at the moment, as nobody else in the squad can provide the same width and delivery from that side.

Speaking in an interview quoted by Metro, Giggs said: "I'm delighted to see Ole has got the job permanently".

"When I started with the reserves, I thought: 'Yeah I like this, I like this environment.' And of course when I saw what Guardiola did - he went from the reserves and then into Barcelona [top job], I wondered if could I do the same".
