Ahead of their 3pm clash against Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side, the former United goalkeeper, who spent five years at Old Trafford between 2005 and 2010, gave his honest thoughts on today's opponents.
In the pre-match interview with Sky reporter Geoff Shreeves, the 38-year-old was asked whether it was a good time to face their struggling opponents. His confident response brought plenty of reactions from those on social media.
:speaking_head: "There's a couple of teams you would genuinely worry about but the other 17, 18 I honestly think we can get points from and that includes Man United."

As you can see in the footage above, Foster said when you have quality players like Manchester United do, then a team like Solskjaer's are "never far away from it clicking."
That being said, the confident shot-stopper said he believes 16th placed Watford can pick up points at Vicarage Road.
"For me, there's a couple of teams you would genuinely worry about," Foster said. "But the other 17, 18 I honestly think we can get points from and that includes Manchester United."
Here's how social media reacted to those comments.
Don't really care if we win (it's the bare minimum) but is is everything that's wrong with Ole's United in a nutshell. The fear factor is completely gone. It's not even just Watford. You'd find some Championship teams that would like their chances against us. https://t.co/cuMSmR9dbw

Getting mocked by a YouTuber is a very low point for this club

100% true. Every team in the league will be disappointed is they didn't pick up points against us!
