In Tuesday’s match between Manchester United and Watford, there was quite the action on the pitch. From a comfortable 3-0 lead for the Red Devils up until the 77th minute to being near equalized in less than 10 minutes later.
With Ashley Young’s two goals, United first came into the lead at a fast 2-0 by the 25th minute. One of Young’s goals came from a beautiful and stunning free-kick that left Mourinho speechless and bewildered. His reaction was quite a hit around social media websites such as Twitter and Facebook.
Just 7 minutes later, Anthony Martial scored a goal of his own, assisted by Romelu Lukaku, and set up the visitors to a 3-0 lead. The game stayed at this scoreline up until the last quarter hour of the match.
As Manchester’s defence failed to do their job properly, it came to a penalty at the 77th minute. Troy Deeney was the shot and he converted it easily, giving Watford a notch on the board. Seven minutes later, Abdoulaye Doucoure scored home from inside the area.
This is when the fire was lit under Manchester’s feet as their huge lead dwindled into a very visible draw scenario. That is when Jesse Lingard took matters into his own hands as he took the ball all the way from his half and drove it all the way until the end to give Manchester United the finishing 4-2 scoreline. Mourinho had another social media craze-worthy reaction to the goal, giving Zlatan Ibrahimovic a giant hug, with both legends obviously extremely happy for their win.
Manchester United shouldn’t be removed as they could potentially still be in the run for the title, with everything depending on the games to come of course. They sure will need Romelu Lukaku’s struggle to end though as even though he assisted during the game versus Watford, he has scored only once in his last 11 games.
