Troy Deeney believes Watford can play without pressure when they take on Manchester United at Vicarage Road on Saturday.

The Hornets head into the evening kick-off with a perfect record of four wins from four Premier League outings this term.

United, meanwhile, sit 10th in the table having won two and lost two of their games so far - a run of form which has seen the Old Trafford club suffer heavy scrutiny.

Deeney is hopeful the Hornets can play on any insecurities in the United dressing room and head into the match in a relaxed mood.

“They are one of those teams we enjoy playing against and it is a free hit,” Deeney told BBC 5 Live. “Everyone will write us off and if we win the headlines are all about Jose [Mourinho] and how the Man United team is not as good as all the greats.”

Watford have previous against United at Vicarage Road, having beaten the Red Devils 3-1 in 2016.

Deeney feels playing at home will aid Watford in their quest to claim another big Premier League scalp, and says the Hornets know their strengths heading into the game.

“It will be a good game for the neutral. On our tight pitch, it is a bit like a theatre because it is a late kick-off and the floodlights will be on,” he said.

“We can make it uncomfortable for them but we are not naive enough to think we are going to outplay them. We will play our game, implement our style and hopefully it will be enough on the day.”

Watford’s start to the season has seen them overcome Brighton, Burnley, Crystal Palace and perhaps most impressively Tottenham.

For Deeney the comeback 2-1 success over Spurs will provide the biggest confidence boost to the Watford camp as they look to carry on their unbeaten start to the campaign.

“We are going to take it game by game and I know that is said a lot, but it is the truth,” the 30-year-old said.

“The biggest win for us is the Spurs game, because it gave us the belief this could really be something good. Going a goal down against a so-called bigger team, we showed a lot of fight.”
