Jose Mourinho has reached his first major hurdle as Manchester United manager.
Two defeats in a week had placed even greater significance on Sunday's match away to Watford with most United fans expecting a much better performance than what they had seen against Manchester City and Feyenoord.
Unfortunately for them, however, that was not the case and the Red Devils looked similarly unconvincing during the first half at Vicarage Road.

And they could count themselves to be extremely fortunate to have not gone behind after just ten minutes into the clash.
Two of their most consistent performers from last season were involved in a horror show you're more likely to see in a schoolboy game rather than the Premier League.
A hopeful ball thrown into box should have been easily dealt with by David de Gea, who was under no pressure by any Watford forward.
However, a breakdown in communication saw Chris Smalling also challenge for the ball, resulting in the Spanish goalkeeper dropping what had initially looked a straight-forward catch.
To make matters worse, the ball fell to Hornets striker Odion Ighalo who seemingly had the simplest of finishes with the goal gaping.
And yet, he produced one of the misses of the season so far as he skewed his shot wide of the empty net.
As you see from the video below, De Gea and Smalling will not want to watch this back again!
