Manchester United moved top of the Premier League table with a hard fought 2-1 victory over Watford at Vicarage Road this afternoon.
United opened the scoring early on as Memphis Depay volleyed home from close range following an Ander Herrera cross in the 11th minute.
Both sides had chances to add to the scoreline but it was Watford who eventually found a way through after the hosts were awarded a penalty when Odion Ighalo was hauled down by Marcos Rojo in the area.
Troy Deeney stepped up to make no mistake from the spot and level things up at 1-1 in the 86th minute, ending United’s record of not conceding a goal in 640 minutes of football.
However, United snatched a winner in injury time after Bastian Schweinsteiger’s cross-come-shot found it’s way into the net off the back of Troy Deeney following a 90th minute corner.
The victory sees United climb above Arsenal and Manchester City to the top of the Premier League table ahead of their rivals games this afternoon.
