A 3-1 win for Watford meant Manchester United suffered their third defeat in a week. Here is how the players rated

Troy Deeney

The Watford captain was superb as he led the line, bullying the United defence, as well as doing the dirty work in defence.

While his United counterpart Wayne Rooney endured a miserable afternoon, Deeney showed that with plenty of fight he can enjoy as good a season as last year and the injury-time penalty was just reward for an afternoon of toil.
