Old boy Young downs Watford to lift Man Utd

"I was there from when I was 10 to 21", the England worldwide said.

Given Ashley Young's not scored two goals in a Premier League game since 2012, there will have been more than a few people who raised their eyebrows at the makeshift Manchester United left wing-back finding the back of the net twice in spectacular fashion against Watford, tonight.

Abdoulaye Doucoure boosted what had seemed an unlikely comeback when he struck six minutes from time, but Lingard capped an impressive display in the number 10 role with a stunning effort moments later.

And against his former club, the 32-year-old delivered a masterclass of a performance in the first half.

The severity of the injury is unknown, but there appeared to be little reason to take any chances with the midfielder as a first-half double by Ashley Young put United up early against Watford, with Anthony Martial adding a third before the half.

After Lukaku spurned numerous chances to add to United's lead, Watford showed signs of improvement and earned a penalty in the 76th minute when Marcos Rojo brought down Roberto Pereyra, and Deeney converted the spot kick to make it 3-1.

Had it not been for Gomes it would have been 4-0 by half-time, the Brazilian getting down to save from Lukaku and then reacting extraordinarily quickly to palm Lingard's follow-up over the bar.

The Hornets ended the half on a high as Femenia burst forward and clipped a cross towards Richarlison, who headed against David De Gea's crossbar.

Marco Silva's Watford hit the bar through Richarlison, but never looked like recording a second successive home win over the Red Devils.

There was a further lift for the home fans when Deeney made his return after a three-game suspension.
