Deeney bullish ahead of United test

Troy Deeney says he respects Manchester United ahead of their trip to Vicarage Road but he is confident Watford can get a result.

The Hornets striker opened his account for the season in the 4-2 win at West Ham last time out and now he is gunning for Jose Mourinho's United.

Deeney is well aware of the threat Sunday's opponents possess but is convinced Watford can get a result.

"When is there a good time to play Man United? There is never a good time to play against [Wayne] Rooney, [Paul] Pogba, there are a lot of players," Deeney said, as reported by the Hertfordshire Mercury.

He added: "They are massive players and it is a massive team. The challenge that we have this year is not to be fazed or be in awe of these people.

"They have gone on to have great careers and they're great professionals, you can have respect for them.

"But we are Watford and we are in the Premier League for a reason.

"I go into every game thinking I'm Troy Deeney, I'm the man I am going to show you what's what. I just want everyone else to think like that."
