Watford host Manchester United at Vicarage Road on Sunday (Watch live, 9 a.m. ET on NBCSN and online via NBCSports.com) with both teams desperate for the points for very different reasons.

In team news Watford are unchanged from last week as Mesina and Pereyra are back on the bench.
Man United are unchanged but Paul Pogba returns to the bench after his lengthy spell out with injury.
