FT: Man Utd 1-0 Watford!! All over at Old Trafford and United are through. OGS' side started well and took the lead with a 5th minute McTominay header. The hosts were dominant in the first 20 minutes, but after that, Watford picked up. They had several promising attacks and some good chances to score, but good goalkeeping and some solid United defending kept the Hornets at the bay. That said, United were the better team and deserved the win.
