Troy Deeney own goal hands points to Manchester United

first_img Watford looked to have snatched a point when Deeney’s 87th-minute spot-kick cancelled out Memphis Depay’s early opener, but the Hornets captain bundled in Bastian Schweinsteiger’s cross moments later to give Louis van Gaal’s side a valuable three points. The win means United are now unbeaten in eight in all competitions. United remained largely in control, however, and Morgan Schneiderlin twice went close to doubling their advantage, first volleying over from an acute angle and then sliding in for a tap-in before Deeney’s crucial touch diverted the ball to safety. The last notable action of the first period saw Heurelho Gomes skew his kick straight to the feet of Depay but the forward delayed his pass to an offside Juan Mata, with Watford going into the break relieved to be only one down. The Hornets were under the cosh again soon after the restart as the lively Jesse Lingard saw his shot palmed wide by Gomes and it was not until the hour mark that Quique Sanchez Flores’ side began to enjoy their first spell of pressure. Deeney’s thundering half-volley had to be pushed away by David de Gea, then Ighalo’s close-range finish was blocked by Schneiderlin, before United’s keeper was again called into action to deny Almen Abdi’s dipping shot. Suddenly, United’s previous dominance had diminished and in the 75th minute Van Gaal leapt out of his seat to lambast Chris Smalling, after the otherwise impressive defender had allowed Deeney another drive at De Gea. Lingard should have put the result beyond doubt when he latched on to Daley Blind’s lofted ball down the middle, but his attempted lob dropped harmlessly into the hands of Gomes. It almost proved costly as three minutes from time Marcos Rojo swiped through the back of Ighalo and referee Bobby Madley pointed to the spot. Deeney slammed the penalty down the middle to the ecstasy of the home supporters, but they had barely retaken their seats when, a minute into injury time, he then bundled in Schweinsteiger’s pull-back to gift the Red Devils the narrowest of victories. TWEET OF THE MATCH Yeah my Man i’m happy for you @Memphis Come on @ManUtd – Anthony Martial (@AnthonyMartial) may have been missing for Manchester United but the striker was more than pleased to see Memphis Depay score in his absence PLAYER RATINGS Watford Heurelho Gomes: 6 (out of 10) Allan Nyom: 6 Miguel Britos: 6 Craig Cathcart: 7 Ikechi Anya: 7 Almen Abdi: 7 Ben Watson: 6 Etienne Capoue: 8 Jose Manuel Jurado: 5 Odion Ighalo: 7 Troy Deeney: 6 Subs Nathan Ake (for Jurado, 45): 7 Juan Carlos Paredes (for Nyom, 69): 5 Manchester United David de Gea: 8 Ashley Young: 7 Phil Jones: 6 Chris Smalling: 7 Daley Blind: 7 Morgan Schneiderlin: 7 Bastian Schweinsteiger: 7 Jesse Lingard: 7 Ander Herrera: 6 Juan Mata: 6 Memphis Depay: 8 Subs Marcos Rojo (for Herrera, 25): 6 Paddy McNair (for Jones, 69): 5 Andreas Pereira (for Mata, 79): 5 STAR PLAYER Memphis Depay: Manchester United could hardly find a striker to play at Vicarage Road given their number of absentees but Depay more than filled the void, capping a lively display with an excellent first-half finish. MOMENT OF THE MATCH Troy Deeney’s own-goal: Deeney thought he was the hero of the piece when his 86th-minute penalty made it 1-1, but five minutes later it was his own-goal that gifted United victory in the cruellest of turnarounds. VIEW FROM THE BENCH Louis van Gaal will be relieved his side managed, eventually, to come away with the three points but the Dutchman will not have been happy with his side’s wastefulness in front of goal, which almost cost them dear. For Quique Sanchez Flores, he will know Watford’s survival will not depend on beating the likes of Manchester United but this was a draw they should have held on to. MOAN OF THE MATCH Manchester United fans will have been groaning at the sight of Ander Herrera hobbling off in the first half. They can hardly afford any more attacking absentees. WHO’S UP NEXT Aston Villa v Watford, November 28 (Premier League) Manchester United v PSV Eindhoven, November 25 (Champions League) Depay started 12 of Manchester United’s opening 13 games but his appearance at Vicarage Road was his first in the Premier League since October 4 against Arsenal. The last time the Holland international completed a full 90 minutes for United came against Southampton on September 20 but he was delighted to finish the game – and score a goal. “We started well, we made it easy to score,” Depay told BT Sport. “I’m happy that I finished the 90 minutes, (the last time) was a long time ago, and I’m happy that the team gave everything. It was a little bit hard, but I’m fine.” Manchester United midfielder Schweinsteiger, whose attempt was deflected in off Deeney in the final minute, said: “The angle was not so easy, but of course (Deeney) touched the ball. In football you always have to believe. “I thought we were unlucky to concede the penalty, but you always have to do your best until the final whistle. We’re happy with the three points.” Watford manager Quique Sanchez Flores refused to be downbeat despite the nature of the defeat. He said: “We are still fighting. At half-time the feeling was really bad, Manchester United played very well, we were not comfortable on the pitch but we are happy with the reaction. “In the second half we played in the way we played in the other 12 games. We changed a lot, we had a lot of chances, four or five, and we would have been happy with the draw.” Troy Deeney went from hero to villain in the space of five minutes as the Watford striker scored a late penalty and then an own goal to give Manchester United a 2-1 victory at Vicarage Road. Deeney had invited six former inmates from his three-month spell in prison in 2012 to watch the contest but despite his third goal in four matches, he failed to get Watford out of jail as they sank to their fifth defeat of the season. Vicarage Road was the first Premier League ground of the weekend to play La Marseillaise before kick-off, in tribute to victims of the Paris terrorist attacks eight days ago. United fans added their own personal touch, chanting ‘Ooh ah Cantona’ with the music, before the anthem’s end was greeted with a warm round of applause from both sets of supporters. United’s primary failing this season has been in the final third and their attacking prospects at Vicarage Road were not helped by a shortage of strikers, with Wayne Rooney ill, James Wilson lacking fitness and Anthony Martial out with a foot injury. It meant a first league start for Depay since United’s 3-0 defeat to Arsenal on October 4 while youngsters Marcus Rashford and Sean Goss were named on the bench. Depay’s United career has been one of fits and starts since his £31million move in the summer but Van Gaal may have stumbled upon a temporary solution to his side’s attacking woes, with the striker offering the kind of movement and speed in behind that has been so lacking in recent weeks. It took only 11 minutes for the 21-year-old to break the deadlock as Ander Herrera whipped in a superb cross from the right, and Depay applied a sweet side-foot volley into the top corner. The goal knocked the stuffing out of Watford but the hosts could have equalised when Etienne Capoue nicked the ball off Ashley Young near the halfway line and, with United caught upfield, he set Odion Ighalo free but the forward took too long before blazing over.
