Watford vs Manchester United - No fresh fitness concerns for in-form Watford

Watford have no fresh injuries ahead of their bid for five wins from five Premier League games, against Manchester United on Saturday.

Winger Gerard Deulofeu has been out with a groin problem in recent weeks and suffered a minor injury on his return to training, but should be back soon.

Midfielder Tom Cleverley (Achilles) is the Hornets’ only long-term absentee.

Marcus Rashford starts a three-match domestic ban, while Luke Shaw could feature despite sustaining concussion last weekend.

Rashford will be unable to build on his two England goals after being sent off against Burnley but Jose Mourinho says Shaw could feature as “by the protocol point of view and according to our doctor, he will be free to play”.

Ander Herrera (ankle) and Marouane Fellaini (back) are doubts, while Marcos Rojo and Diogo Dalot will step up their return from injury when the under-23s face Reading on Friday.

Mourinho provided no pre-match update on Phil Jones, who came off with a hamstring complaint in the defeat to Tottenham.
