Watford v Manchester United

Ashley Young scores twice as Man Utd survive late rally to beat Watford 4-2 and reduce Man City's PL lead to five points

Ashley Young ended an 18-month goal drought by scoring twice against his former club as Manchester United beat Watford 4-2 at Vicarage Road.

Young scored his opener with a low shot from Jesse Lingard's pass before curling in a superb free-kick to double the lead.

Anthony Martial struck a third and Watford goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes made a double save to deny Romelu Lukaku and Lingard before Richarlison headed on to the bar.

Watford produced two quickfire goals by Troy Deeney, from the penalty spot, and Abdoulaye Doucoure, from Andre Carrillo's pass.

But a Lingard solo effort sealed the win which puts United five points behind leaders Manchester City.
