MANCHESTER UNITED suffered their third defeat in eight days as Watford handed Jose Mourinho his worst run as a manager since 2002.
Goals from Etienne Capoue, Juan Zuniga and a late penalty from Troy Deeney overwhelmed the visitors, who had levelled with a solitary strike from Marcus Rashford.
It brought back memories of last season’s disappointing campaign under Louis van Gaal, who lost four consecutive matches in December.
