Manchester United fans will feel like Sunday’s fixture with Watford is an eternity away following their disappointment in losing the Manchester Derby 1-2.

But the Red Devils’ stars will have to ensure they’re on their best behaviour at Vicarage Road on Sunday with Michael Oliver having been selected to referee the fixture.

Having produced the most amount of cards so far this season (15 yellow cards) in the three games he has officiated, the likes of Marouane Fellaini will have to battle carefully to stay on the right side of Oliver.

Criticising referee Mark Clattenburg‘s decision not to award the Red Devils a penalty while sending off Claudio Bravo in the 1-2 loss to Manchester City, Mourinho is a manager who has particularly been incensed by refereeing decisions down the years.

Nevertheless, perhaps it is Watford who should be watching their step in Sunday’s fixture in Hertfordshire with the Hertfordshire Mercury revealing that it is the Hornets who boast the worst disciplinary record in the Premier League so far this season.

Walter Mazzarri’s side have racked up as many as 14 yellow cards and one red in their first four games of the 2016/17 Premier League campaign.
