United 3-0 Watford: 5 Things We Learnt As Watford Fell At Old Trafford.

Manchester United followed up the win against Chelsea with another emphatic win over Watford at Old Trafford. The game also saw Naija's own Odion Ighalo make his Old Trafford debut against his former club.

Here's what #ManUtdNaijaFM learnt from the clash:

Our 'tear-rubber-new-chasis' signing sat down 'gidigba' in the game today. He was given a free role behind Martial, Mason and James and he  delivered.

He was involved in every goal United scored today, winning and scoring the penalty and set up Martial and Greenwood for the second and third goals. More 'ororo oil' to your knees Bruno!!

Shaw has been in brilliant form in the past few weeks playing as a center back in Olè's back three formation. He returned to his traditional left back role today and continued.

One aspect that has certainly improved in his game is his positioning. He has really got this right and has thus made so many vital interceptions in defence.

Anthony 'Ikechukwu' Martial continued his goal scoring resurgence with his third consecutive goal in three games. Today's goal was however special.

It was described as Fanta-stic, but #ManUtdNaijaFM thinks that goal was 'Palmwine-stic'. He made a total mockery of Watford's defence and United's former goalkeeper, Ben Foster.

Fred has been one of United's best performers in recent months which earned him player of the month of January. He has consistently nothing short of a warrior in midfield, winning balls, driving the team forward and covering every corner of the pitch.

Watford recognised that and were on him today, but as we say in Naija "Husai!! E no work". Man Utd Naija FM has therefore decided to name him Fred 'Akinbode'.

Mason Greenwood loves to fire bullets (shaka-bula) into the net. His goals have become typical. They leave his foot all of a sudden, travel at 180km/hr, hit the crossbar and the next thing the keeper realizes is that the ball is dancing 'shakiti-bobo' inside the net!

The RVP junior has now scored 11 goals this season. Kudos!!

IN THE END, it was three goals, three points and a three Permier clean sheets in a row served as 'Sunday rice' to Manchester United fans. Kudos to Harry 'Okute' Maguire and his boys for keeping a clean sheet.
