Subject: WATFORD CRUSHED BY UNITED Manchester United crushed Watford with four goals inside 11 minutes either side of half-time at Old Trafford. United scored through Dwight Yorke, Andy Cole and a Denis Irwin penalty in the last six minutes of the first half before Cole netted again five minutes after the interval. Richard Johnson netted a consolation goal for the Hornets, who had defender Mark Williams sent off two minutes from time for chopping down United substitute Jonathan Greening.

Subject: Man Utd 4-1 Watford United scored four goals in 11 minutes either side of half time, as Watford's brave challenge was dismissed by a ruthless home side. Watford competed for the first 39 minutes of the match, and also for the final 40 of the game, scoring a 68th-minute consolation through Richard Johnson. But Dwight Yorke, Andy Cole (two goals) and a Denis Irwin penalty in the game's middle portion meant they went home with no reward. They also ended with 10 men after Mark Williams was sent off for a high challenge on substitute Jonathan Greening in the 88th minute. Watford manager Graham Taylor reacted in the sort of angry manner familiar to anyone with a video copy of the former England boss's infamous Channel 4 documentary. Bosnich back in first team Mark Bosnich, who played in Wednesday's Worthington Cup defeat at Villa Park, kept his place in the United side with Massimo Taibi not even on the bench. But the rest of Wednesday night's line up was predictably replaced by first team regulars. Cole and Yorke both went close in the first two minutes, but Watford were not overawed, with Williams and Nordin Wooter having first half chances. But the roof fell in on the visitors with three quick goals, underneath Old Trafford's stand without a roof, which is being redeveloped. It all started when Nick Butt lifted a cross from the right into the six yard box, and Yorke smartly scissor-kicked it into the net. Chamberlain got a hand to it, but was unable to stop the ball trickling over the line. The Watford keeper had no chance with Cole's goal, with the striker heading home unmarked from close range after Giggs had crossed from the left. Penalty The third was a Denis Irwin penalty, smashed home after Peter Kennedy had bundled over David Beckham in the right-hand corner of the area. United made it four five minutes after half time, with Cole scoring the goal of the game. After Yorke's acrobatics for his goal, his strike partner was not to be outdone and produced an even better finish from Beckham's deflected right wing cross. Despite the challenge of a defender, Cole met the looping ball at the far post with a scissor kick of his own and gave Chamberlain no chance. There were further cheers around Old Trafford a few minutes later, but it was not for a fifth goal, merely substitute Roy Keane making a return from his latest injury in place of Jaap Stam. Subs and sending off With the game all but won, Alex Ferguson was happy to give other players a run out, with Ole Gunnar Solksjaer and Greening introduced either side of Watford's consolation. Australian striker Johnson thrashed a far post volley past compatriot Bosnich. The Watford man was left completely unmarked, to provide a reminder of some of United's recent defensive frailties. The game appeared to be drifting to its inevitable conclusion, but Williams went flying in on Greening by the touchline, and referee Peter Jones produced a red card which was met with an angry reaction from the visitors. Teams: Man Utd: Bosnich, Irwin, Stam, Silvestre, Neville, Beckham, Butt, Scholes, Giggs, Cole, Yorke. Subs: Van Der Gouw, Solskjaer, Wallwork, Greening, Keane. Watford: Chamberlain, Gibbs, Page, Palmer, Robinson, Kennedy, Hyde, Johnson, Williams, Ngonge, Wooter. Subs: Wright, Day, Smith, Easton, Miller. Referee: P Jones (Loughborough)

Subject: YORKE AND COLE WINS THE PLAUDITS Sir Alex Ferguson and Graham Taylor joined together to praise Dwight Yorke and Andy Cole after the Manchester United strikers shot down Watford at Old Trafford. The pair were outstanding in United's 4-1 win as Cole scored twice to take his tally for the season to 10 and Yorke netted once for his ninth of the campaign. Denis Irwin scored United's other goal from the penalty spot as the treble winners netted four times in 11 minutes either side of half-time before Richard Johnson pulled a goal back for the visitors. United boss Ferguson was delighted with Yorke and Cole and he said: "They were looking good today - very sharp "Their first move in the first minute produced a marvellous save from the goalkeeper. "They can produce electricity in moments in a game which can catch the best defenders." Watford manager Taylor was even more lavish in his praise and he said: "They're the best in the country by a mile. "At club level this is the best twosome in the country and these boys can finish. "Cole has now got 10 goals, Yorke has got nine that's 19 between them. "What did they get last year? Goodness knows how many."

Subject: Ferguson salutes returning hero Keane By Peter Fitton Roy Keane's menacing intent and muscular presence could well secure Manchester United's qualification for the next phase of the Champions League in France on Tuesday night. When Sir Alex Ferguson analyses the considerable contribution of his Old Trafford skipper there is little room for understatement. Only the reality that the Irishman is a team catalyst in the mould of Eric Cantona. The United manager embarks on the journey to Marseille tomorrow morning convinced that Keane's comeback from the threat of another knee operation could not have been more usefully timed. He said: 'Roy's a fantastic footballer. Yes, the best in Britain - we all know that. You can't ignore the fact, but sometimes we just have to cope when he's out. 'It's always handy, though, to get your best players back. He has an immense effect on the other play-ers, no matter how he himself performs. I believe he has a huge influence very much in the way Bryan Robson had. 'Keano has that captain's impact and a particular individual trait within him that makes him a winner. That spreads right through the United team and, obviously, it was one of the major reasons I made him skipper.' Ferguson's testimony would suggest the boardroom paymasters might wisely consider such footballing qualities as they delay further contract talks to keep Keane at United next summer. His absence in recent weeks has underlined the combative strength he brings to a team that cannot be questioned on technical ability. Ferguson added: 'We have been strained a bit with player availability lately. Certain players have had little niggles and been forced to get by. It doesn't do you any good in the long term. 'Eventually, that sort of thing catches up with you and it caught us in the five-goal defeat at Chelsea.' The return of Keane and Ryan Giggs, barring any reaction after yesterday's game with Watford, will afford Ferguson valuable options. 'A win over there would put us very close to qualification,' he agreed. 'Whichever team wins will be in the comfort zone.'

Subject: Under-fire Beckham gets Sir Bobby's backing Sir Bobby Charlton reacted angrily yesterday to the FA's disciplinary clampdown on David Beckham. Beckham's summons to discuss his conduct with FA compliance officer Graham Bean enraged Manchester United director Charlton, who said: 'I didn't think that the FA had any cause to speak to David. 'We talk to him on a regular basis, he's aware of what's right and what's wrong. I don't think David needs someone from the FA to get a message over. I thought the meeting was totally unnecessary.'
