Etienne Capoue gave Watford the lead in the first half before Rashford levelled the odds in the second half.

However, an 83rd minute goal from full-back Zuniga gave Watford the lead again before captain Troy Deeney slotted home a penalty deep into extra-time.

Having suffered a demoralising loss at home to Manchester City and losing away to Feyenoord in the Europa league, United were hoping to bring back their winning ways at Vicarage road.

Nobody saw me running around the pitch when we won a couple of matches and nobody sees me now really depressed. I'm sad obviously"

30 years later

This defeat adds to a miserable eight days for United and it is the first time since August 2006 that Jose Mourinho has lost three consecutive matches as a manager, which was during his first spell at Chelsea. This game held another significant moment as it is the first time Watford have beaten United in 30 years.

Regarding the attitude of the players, Mourinho told MUTV "I think they now have to show themselves with a certain attitude to these negative moments."

"I show them, as an example, Ashley Young who was, in my opinion, phenomenal with his attitude, positivity and determination. We need positive people to give positive feelings because, the next time they are on the pitch, they are going to feel the weight of the defeat"

Following this defeat, there has been mixed views from fans, with some backing Mourinho while others not happy with the defeat.
