Since 2003/04 when he originally joined Manchester United, Cristiano Ronaldo has been directly involved in 104 goals in 91 league appearances against promoted teams (83 goals and 21 assists), scoring or assisting every 71 minutes. He has scored 20 goals in his last 14 league meetings with promoted teams, across spells with Real Madrid and Juventus.
Watford have conceded at least once in each of their last 21 Premier League matches. It’s their longest ever run without a clean sheet in the top flight.
Man Utd have won 18 of their 26 top-flight matches against Watford (D4 L4), a win ratio of 69 per cent. Among teams they’ve faced at least 20 times in their top-flight history, they only have a higher win ratio against Luton Town (73 per cent – P30 W22).
Man Utd are winless in three Premier League matches against promoted clubs, drawing with West Bromwich Albion, Leeds United and Fulham last season. They haven’t gone four in a row without a win against such opposition since a run ending in September 1997 where they failed to beat Sunderland, Derby County, Leicester City and Bolton Wanderers.
