Marlon King is hoping Watford can 'get in the face' of Manchester United on Saturday.
The Red Devils visit Vicarage Road on the back of convincing wins over Fulham and Charlton Athletic.
But the early Premiership leaders will encounter a Watford side who have performed creditably in their opening two games.
The top-flight new boys were unlucky to lose 2-1 at Everton last weekend and ground out a 1-1 draw with West Ham United in midweek.
King, who scored a stunning goal against The Hammers, is confident he can help to pose a stern test to the Red Devils defence.
The powerful striker is aiming to make the visitors work for any points and believes Vicarage Road can be turned into a fortress.
"Sometimes big clubs don't like it when you are in their faces," said King.
"United have big-name players, but we will aim to match them, work hard and keep grafting.
"We believe in ourselves. We will make this place a fortress against anyone."
