Hornets star plots United downfall

Watford defender Adrian Mariappa says Manchester United are "there for the taking" ahead of Sunday's clash at Vicarage Road.

The Hornets host United on Sunday seeking to back up their impressive win at West Ham last time out.

The Old Trafford side suffered Manchester derby disappointment last weekend and also play in midweek at Feyenoord on Thursday.

Mariappa expects a stern test on Sunday but he feels Watford are more than capable of taking points from any opposition on home soil, and is confident his side can get a result.

He told the Watford Observer: “We can definitely cause them [Manchester United] some problems.

"They will be coming to our ground as well. Every team in the Premier League nowadays is there for the taking.

"It’s all about just performing your game plan well on the day. In the last game, to score four goals away from home is testament to the firepower we have.

"I’m sure they’ll be doing their homework on us and taking the game very seriously which they should be."
