Marcus Rashford scored his second goal for England in the space of a week on Tuesday night
But two goals in three first-half minutes from in-form Romelu Lukaku and Chris Smalling gave them valuable breathing space at half-time and ultimately paved the way to a victory that ended Watford's ideal record.
Even when Watford finally got the goal their performance deserved, with Andre Gray firing home as United stood off midway through the second period, the visitors' response was that of a convincing unit as they saw off a late onslaught from Javi Gracia's men and even absorbed the injury-time sending-off of Nemanja Matic. "We were too sloppy but it's another win and we have to keep going".
"We know what is a goalkeeper from a big team, some matches you don't touch the ball, in some matches you are just somebody that is watching the game but in the right moment you have to be there and his moment was in the last minute".
Romelu Lukaku is in front of Rashford and I don't see Rashford displacing him as long as he is there. "So, with me, in two s-easons, he had 105 appearances, 5,744 minutes, 63.7 matches of 90 minutes, including five finals, so the people speaking about these minutes, I think they are a bit confused".
With the first worldwide break of the season behind them, United had to do some tinkering for Saturday's clash with the Hornets, who enjoyed a ideal start to their Premier League campaign going into this weekend's game.
Mourinho made one change to the victory at Burnley, with Luke Shaw not featuring in the matchday squad after suffering concussion while playing for England last weekend.
The first half an hour was even as the two sides tested each other out - United probed but the home side looked risky on the break, confidence coursing through the players on the back of four straight wins.
The lead could have been doubled nearly immediately with Foster again called into action, this time pushing a Paul Pogba strike over. We had some counter attacks to finish the game but we didn't score.
After a free-kick had finally been cleared by the hosts, Young collected the ball and crossed for Lukaku who was free to guide the ball home from close range.
This time Young's corner was sent deep into the box, with Marouane Fellaini's knock-down skillfully controlled on the chest by Smalling, with the defender on the turn then sending the ball past Foster.
38' - GOAL! Watford 0-2 Man United.
What is the team news?
But United's defensive organization coupled with some David de Gea heroics ensured the Red Devils won their second consecutive away game.
