As we prepare to welcome Watford, to Old Trafford, for a Premier League fixture this Saturday, we`ve delved into the history and form books to bring you a raft of fascinating facts.

? The last meeting between the two clubs was the 7th in the Premier league, after beating Watford in the first 6 games, Manchester United suffered a defeat at the hands of the Hornets for the first time, losing 3-1 at Vicarage Road.

? The defeat, back in September, was also the first in 11 matches in all competitions, ending a run that stretched back to 1986.

? Watford will arrive at Old Trafford having never won a league fixture there. However, they have won there on the one occasion. Back in 1978, Luther Blissett scored both goals as United lost to Watford in a League Cup tie.

? Manchester United enter the fixture on the back of an unbeaten run of 15 Premier League games, comprising of 8 wins and 7 draws, the longest unbeaten run since Sir Alex Ferguson retired.

? When it comes to fixtures at Old Trafford, Manchester United are on an unbeaten run, in all competitions, of 18 games, comprising of 12 wins and 6 draws.

? A win against Watford would see Manchester United become the first Premier League side to amass 2000 points.

? Manchester United`s Zlatan Ibrahimovic has a good record against sides managed by Watford`s current boss, Walter Mazzarri, scoring 6 goals in 10 league appearances whilst playing in Serie A and the Premier League.
