4.30pm Man Utd news LIVE: Watford defeat, ‘Ole Out’ trends, De Gea howler gifts goal, Pogba returns, Haaland LATEST – The Sun

MAN UTD were dismal as bottom club Watford picked up their first home win of the season at Vicarage Road.

A howler from David De Gea was the low point of the afternoon and gifted the Premier League's basement side a second-half lead in the 2-0 defeat.

Paul Pogba returned to action as a substitute but was unable to inspire a fightback.

Meanwhile, a January move for Erling Haaland appears to be edging ever closer with discussions between the club and his agent Mino Raiola reportedly already underway.

  • MANCHESTER UNITED fans have got “oleout” trending on Twitter after an abysmal 2-0 defeat at Watford.

    Goals from Ismaila Sarr and a Troy Deeney penalty saw the Hornets win only their second game of the season – but they remain bottom.

    It means United have the lowest points total, 25, ever at this stage of the season.

    They are also four points worse off from last season where Jose Mourinho was sacked.

    So it is not surprising that fans vented their fury on social media, and most of the criticism was levelled at the boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

    The hash tag “OleOut” was trending, with many demanding a change of management.

    One fan wrote how the Norwegian is “very useless”, with another writing that his body language is “characteristic of a loser”.

  • IT'S OVER!

    Watford have picked up their first home win of the season at the hands of Man Utd.

    The Red Devils were second best throughout and the result will only further intensify the pressure surrounding Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's future.

  • FANS of Manchester United and Arsenal will be excited by Napoli star Dries Mertens' latest Instagram post.

    The forward hinted at a goodbye to the Italian city on social media, and is expected to leave as early as January after a dressing room rift.

    Napoli fans flooded the comments fearing an exit, with one saying “Dries please stay” and another telling him “Dries you are Neopolitan, don't go away.”

    Mertens is likely to leave Napoli, possibly as early as January, after being fined £145,000 for his part in a revolt against Napoli owner Aurelio De Laurentiis.

    Players at the club refused to take part in a special training camp organised by the owner in an attempt to improve recent poor results.

    If Arsenal manage to land Mertens in the summer, he would become new boss Mikel Arteta's first signing.

    Former Arsenal captain Arteta was confirmed on Friday as the new head coach at the Emirates, signing a three-and-a-half-year deal.

    Mertens has played over 200 times for Napoli since joining in 2013, but it is thought that he may be available in January for as little as £8.5 million.
