Nemanja Matic has joked that he will discover Jose Mourinho’s reaction to his red card when Manchester United return to training on Monday.

United earned an impressive and hard-earned win over Watford on Saturday, their second away victory in as many games after dispatching Burnley.

The visitors were made to hold on against a side that had won each of their previous four league games however, with Andre Gray halving a lead established through Romelu Lukaku and Chris Smalling.

Watford pushed for an equaliser as United defended for all three points, leading to Matic’s red card for two bookable offences.

When asked what Mourinho’s reaction to his red card was, Matic replied: “We will see on Monday!”

He continued: “I think the first yellow card was a clear yellow card. The second one, I’m not sure. It was a foul but I’m not if it was a yellow card.

“It’s OK. I accept the decision of the referee and I will have one game to rest.”
