Video: Axel Tuanzebe gamble pays off with important clearance off the line v Watford

Axel Tuanzebe was alert enough to spot an area of danger as Manchester United hang on to their 1 goal lead against Watford in the third-round of the FA Cup.

The 23-year-old defender comes back into the side, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer urging his fringe players to take their opportunity against Watford.

And — so far, so good!

Manchester United are certainly up for it and have had some decent spells in the first-half.

Scott McTominay opened the scoring thanks to a perfect corner from Alex Telles.

But there was a moment of danger when the ball deflected off Dean Henderson and had to be cleared by Axel Tuanzebe. Otherwise, Watford would’ve equalised.
