Manchester United team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Watford

Sports Mole rounds up Manchester United's latest injury and suspension news ahead of their Premier League clash with Watford on Sunday.

Manchester United will be looking to make it back-to-back Premier League wins when they welcome Watford to Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon.

The Red Devils recorded an impressive 2-0 win over Chelsea on Monday night to move to within three points of the fourth-placed Blues in the table.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side have been in action since then, though, drawing 1-1 with Club Brugge in the first leg of their last-32 Europa League tie on Thursday night.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up United's latest injury and suspension news ahead of the clash with Nigel Pearson's side, who are 19th in the table.

Paul Pogba underwent ankle surgery last month but is believed to be entering the latter stages of his recovery. A timeframe for a potential return has not yet been set by Solskjaer, though, and there are doubts whether the midfielder will play for the club again due to the speculation surrounding his future.
