Manchester United’s Premier League game against Watford on Saturday at Old Trafford ended in a goalless draw.

The Red Devils were unable to find a breakthrough against Watford despite having 22 shots on the Watford goal.

Watford goalkeeper Ben Foster set a record after keeping a clean sheet against Manchester United.

According to Opta, Foster is the oldest goalkeeper to keep a clean sheet against Manchester United in a Premier League game, beating a record held by former Arsenal goalkeeper David Seaman.

Opta wrote: “Ben Foster (38y 329d) becomes the oldest visiting goalkeeper to keep a clean sheet against Manchester United at Old Trafford in the Premier League. Indeed, the previous oldest visiting keeper to achieve this feat was David Seaman (38y 231d) for Arsenal in May 2002. Shutout.”
