The Red devils survived late bombardment from Watford midway through the second half after the home team reduced the deficits by 1 goal. Manchester United who were leading 2-0 before the half time break conceded a silly goal and the scoreline became 2-1.
Watford who came from behind to beat Tottenham at the same stadium, threw everything at Manutd in order to get back into the game but the resolute Red devils defence held on.
There was however a moment of drama when defensive midfielder, Nemanja Matic, was shown his second yellow card of the night and subsequently sent off.
The Red devils however held on and saw the game off. As a result of this, their fans have been reacting to the win on social media.
What they said:
Crazy moment from Matic but David De Gea simply the best goal keeper in the world. Once again saving the team in the dying seconds #WATMUN
