Watford News and Form
Watford left it very late but they produced three points at home against Leicester last weekend. That made it three wins in four league games for the Hornets. So they do have a little bit of form running behind them. There Watford have only a taken two defeats in their last 10 Premier League games. Their away form stands at W5 D5 L5 and they have averaged 1.5 goals per road game. They did not have a great time of things out on the road in their last fixture as they were hammered 5-0 at Anfield by Liverpool.
It is worth noting that the last two league defeats that Watford have suffered have both been against sides who are currently in the top three.

To their great credit, they are seven points better off than they were at the same stage of last season’s campaign.
