"You tend to find very few of them (technical directors) are willing to take that final decision". The Frenchman was perfectly in line with Jesse Lingard when he received the ball, as he scrambed to the ball and found the back of the net to wrap up the win for United.
Abdoulaye Doucoure pulled one back with a last-minute effort.
Watford brought on Demarai Gray, Deulofeu making way, with Marcos Rojo replacing Martial for United. He's playing bit deeper for them so that is something we may have to think about to get him more involved and make him dictate the game.
Starting XI: de Gea (7); Shaw (7), Jones (6), Smalling (6), Young (7); Pogba (6), Matic (6), Herrera (6); Mata (6); Martial (7), Rashford (8*).
The Red Devils are aiming to reach the last four of Europe's elite club competition as they look to try and win the trophy for the first time since Sir Alex Ferguson was in charge at Old Trafford.

The Englishman has continued his fantastic form under his new manager, grabbing a crucial goal against Watford on Saturday.
Both Sancho and Hudson-Odoi will be in demand though and any move for the latter could be impeded by Chelsea's transfer ban, and it's believed that United have earmarked none other than former winger and current Crystal Palace talisman Wilfried Zaha as a surprise option should they fail to land either of their two top targets. However they couldn't capitalise on their control, and lost their momentum and dominance once Rashford put the hosts ahead.
The Hornets made the better start and had a chance after only two minutes, Gerard Deulofeu taking too long to deliver his cross with Troy Deeney waiting in the middle.
Watford counterpart Javi Gracia was naturally disappointed after his side dominated for large parts of the game only to leave Old Trafford empty-handed. They can not afford to slip up against Watford today.
Substitutes: Femenia (6), Gray (6), Success (N/A).
Paul Pogba returns from worldwide duty in top form so should be keen to impress at Old Trafford.
