Manchester United got the weekend of EPL football underway with a tight win over Watford on early Saturday morning.
Despite being on the road, this was a match that United really needed to win, and they came out firing from the first minute.
big performance for the Dutch winger.
Watford are feeling the effects of the increased quality in a major way.
It wasn't all good for United, though, as midfielder Ander Herrera limped off the pitch in the first half with an injury.
Definitely one of the more underrated players in the league, Herrera was just recovering from a different injury and had made his way back into the first team for the first time in a few weeks today so he'll be upset to have another spell on the sidelines.
All in all, a good win for United, as they move to first in the table over their rivals City. City have a game in hand but United can only be thrilled with their performance and especially the result.
They'll be hoping City drop points today against Liverpool to maintain the top spot.
Anyone see the match today?
