Jamaal Lascelles missed Newcastle's defeat at Manchester United with an ankle injury

Ashley Young grabbed his first league goals of the season to give Manchester United a commanding lead over Watford in their Premier League clash this evening - and it seems no one was more surprised than United boss Jose Mourinho.

The England global celebrated with vigour in front of the home fans who had given him a warm reception before kick-off and he was soon getting their backs up once more.

Watford got second-half goals from Troy Deeney and Abdoulaye Doucoure to make it interesting, but Jesse Lingard completed his brace to seal it.

The severity of the injury is unknown, but there appeared to be little reason to take any chances with the midfielder as a first-half double by Ashley Young put United up early against Watford, with Anthony Martial adding a third before the half.

And against his former club, the 32-year-old delivered a masterclass of a performance in the first half.

Gomes was nearly rooted to the spot as Young's shot curled into the top corner.

There might even be a chance for his Jumanji co-stars Dwayne Johnson, Jack Black, and Karen Gillan to make an appearance. His musical guest will be platinum-selling artist SZA , who will likely be belting out songs from her debut album Ctrl .

On the receiving end this time was Watford, which had already been pummeled 6-0 by Manchester City — the team second-place United is striving to reel in.

United continued their onslaught as Martial latched on to a Lukaku through-ball following a poor attempted clearance from Christian Kabasele to finish low past Gomes.

United suffered an apparent injury blow as Nemanja Matic limped off the pitch in the 55th minute and was replaced by Ander Herrera.

Marco Silva's Watford hit the bar through Richarlison, but never looked like recording a second successive home win over the Red Devils.

Doucoure made it 3-2 with six minutes remaining, neatly stabbing in Carrillo's cross, but Lingard killed off Watford's comeback hopes with a brilliant 70-yard run and an assured low finish past Gomes.
