It was very much the same old story for Manchester United this afternoon against Watford - it wasn't pretty but they got it done in the end - and at least they provided a dramatic finish.

Memphis Depay gave the Red Devils the lead after just 11 minutes and although Louis van Gaal's side had more chances to double their lead later on, Watford came storming back into the game and forced one spectacular save from David de Gea in particular.

The Manchester United faithful were out in force after the Spaniard displayed his athleticism with a superb near-post save from a deflected shot to preserve his side's lead mid-way through the second half.

However, it was up to Bastian Schweinsteiger to save the day late on in a dramatic end to the game, although the German's strike would seemingly go down as an own-goal against Deeney.

The win means Manchester United are now top of the table until the 3pm games kick off, although there was a lot more to discuss afterwards than just the three points in the bag.

After Deeney's equaliser there were more than a few fans ready to lay into Van Gaal's side - but the late winner changed everything and Twitter was lit up:
