Man Utd back to normal for Watford encounter - Mourinho

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho will revert to the line-up he has used in the opening few Premier League matches against Watford this weekend.

United copped a 1-0 defeat to Feyenoord in the Europa League on Thursday night after the Portuguese tactician made a few alterations to his personnel.

Antonio Valencia and Luke Shaw were replaced by Matteo Darmian and Marcos Rojo but Mourinho suggests he will deploy a more settled XI against the Hornets at Vicarage Road on Sunday.

"It is obvious that we left players like [Antonio] Valencia and [Luke] Shaw at home to play and to rest so we go back to a normal team without so many changes," he said when asked of his early team news for the weekend.

United disappointingly went down to Giovanni van Bronckhorst's Eredivisie outfit at De Kuip in their opening Group A fixture after Tonny Vilhena scored in the 79th minute.
