BBC Sport Manchester United “should have been smoking cigars” in their Premier League victory over Watford, manager Jose Mourinho said.

sky Ashley Young scored two superb goals before Manchester United held off a second-half Watford fightback to win 4-2 at Vicarage Road in the Premier League.

guardian United had looked like running away from Watford as Ashley Young enjoyed an early festive return to Vicarage Road, scoring two lovely goals. The home team never gave up though, dragging it back to 3-2 before Jesse Lingard took the game away with a sublime late fourth goal, weaving his way from his own half to finish in front of a delirious away end.

TelegraphIt was already a strange night’s football by the time that Mourinho came in post-match to analyse a game in which his team had taken a three-goal lead within 31 minutes only almost to throw it all away in the second half when Watford claimed two of their own. This briefly looked like the worst nightmare for a manager whose speciality was once that his teams knew how to shut the door as well as any other, and it took Jesse Lingard to score a brilliant fourth to seal it.

FranIt all started so well.  The Hornets had an early chance as Femenía hit a cross that Richarlison was just unable to reach.  The Brazilian was the next to try a cross, but it was caught by De Gea.  A corner from Cleverley was met by the head of Zeegelaar, but the effort was blocked.  Somewhat against the run of play, the visitors took the lead in the 19th minute with a gorgeous shot from Young that curled in at the near post.  He celebrated in front of the Watford fans, which incurred the wrath of many in the Rookery meaning that his every touch was booed from that moment on. 

The Hornets Nest X-Factor finalists Rak-Su performed at half time and after asking “Watford how we feeling?!”, which one can only assume was rhetorical (no one is that dumb, right?), the question got the response (or rather lack of) that it deserved.

Guardian report:Watford caught them cold and started superbly.

BHappy image report:I should perhaps preface this piece with a warning; specifically, surprisingly and somewhat contrary to the popular line I’m not going to concentrate on the visitors.

Fran’s report: It feels like the 80s all over again and I never thought I would be able to say that.

FTRE image podcast:Watford fans could have been forgiven for thinking things couldn’t get much better after last week’s extraordinary comeback at West Ham. Well, they just did.

9th August 2003

The 9th of August 2003 should have seen Watford play Coventry City on the opening day of the new season.  However the game was postponed after the club learned that our new loanee Jimmy Davis had tragically died in an accident on the M40 motorway.

Jimmy signed professionally for Manchester United in 1999 having been a trainee there.  He was loaned out to Royal Antwerp in 2001, Swindon Town in 2002 and joined Watford on a season long loan in July 2003.  He appeared 5 times for the Hornets in friendlies, scoring in a 4-2 win on his Watford debut at Finnish side JJK Jyvaskyla and also in a 3-0 victory at Aldershot Town.  His final appearance came in a 2-1 win over QPR at Loftus Road when he was substituted after suffering a groin injury.

This injury meant he was not part of the matchday squad for our opening game.  The evening before he had dinner with his friend Danny Webber before deciding to travel home to Manchester for a night out.  He was driving back to Watford in the early hours of Saturday morning when his car hit a truck.  He died at the scene of the accident.  At the inquest into his death it was revealed he was more than twice over the legal drink-drive limit.

Watford announced that the game against Coventry had been postponed ‘due to tragic circumstances beyond their control’ before confirming shortly before the scheduled kick off time that Jimmy had died.

All Jimmy’s former clubs paid tribute to him in the days after his death.  Manchester United also remembered him following their 2004 FA Cup Final win against Millwall when all their players changed into shirts bearing Davis’ name and squad number for the trophy presentation.
