Troy Deeney’s last-gasp own goal handed Manchester United a dramatic 2-1 win over Watford in Saturday’s Premier League clash at Vicarage Road.
Deeney, attempting to keep the ball out on the goal line, went from hero to villain as he turned in Bastian Schweinsteiger’s effort from an angle after the striker had equalised for Watford from the spot just three minutes before.
Memphis Depay scored United’s opener in the 11th minute, turning home Ander Herrera’s cross, before David de Gea pulled off a world-class save to deny Almen Abdi an equaliser in the second half.
Watford equalised with three minutes remaining through Deeney’s penalty after Odion Ighalo was brought down by Marcos Rojo, the first goal United had conceded in nearly 11 hours of football in all competitions, but United earned all three points in the 90th minute.
The result leaves Louis van Gaal’s side firmly in the title race with a third of the season gone, and extends their unbeaten run to five in the Premier League.
