Watford went close to breaking the deadlock when Troy Deeney forced David de Gea to tip over just after the quarter-hour mark.

Watford's bubble on Saturday, withstanding late pressure from the surprise early Premier League pacesetters to win 2-1 and relieve the pressure on beleaguered manager Jose Mourinho.

"Getting two wins on the bounce and coming into a month where there are so many games, I think we are building momentum at the right time".

"Well, I feel very loved in this club, from the fans and for all the people who work for this club", de Gea answered.

"It is disappointing but there are positives we can take away from our reaction and it is important how we react to this first defeat of the season and next week we have to show what we are about".

United have endured a miserable start to the season, losing two of their first four matches and slipping well off the pace set by Liverpool, Chelsea and Watford.

David De Gea says he is "really happy" at Manchester United amid speculation he could sign a new contract to extend his stay at Old Trafford, while hitting back at "stupid" critics who blasted his World Cup performances. "I am really happy to play for this club, one of best clubs in the world, so for me it's really good to be part of this club".
