Watford News and Form
Watford claimed a win out at Huddersfield on the weekend which will have been a relief for them as it snapped some poor away form that they had been in. Three of their final four games of the season are on home soil so that is a positive for them as they look to secure a top-seven finish. Watford have won three of their last four games played at Vicarage Road, but they suffered a loss in their last home fixture which was against Arsenal. Watford were reduced to 10 men early in the game though but still produced more than Arsenal did in the game (aside from a goal). The overall home form of Watford this season reads W8 D2 L6.
The Hornets have scored 23 goals during their home campaign while they have taken a clean sheet in exactly a quarter of their home fixtures. 69% of all games at Vicarage Road this season have gone over 2.5 goals. Of the eight home wins that Watford have taken this season five of them have been by just the one-goal margin. Home and away combined Watford are struggling in defence as they have not taken a clean sheet in any of their last eight played. The Hornets have scored 70% of their home goals this season in the second period of fixtures. They have only opened the scoring in seven of their home games this term. Both teams have scored in five of Watford’s last six league games.

Southampton News and Form
Southampton had a disappointing day at the office on the weekend as they suffered a 3-1 loss at Newcastle. That leaves them on just the four away wins all season, which is part of a W4 D3 L10 road record. Southampton have lost three of their last four games out on the road the one exception in that sequence being a victory at Brighton. So that is just the one victory in their last five out on the road (D1 L3). They likely have done enough to get themselves safe for the season but mathematically they still have some work to do to ensure that.
Southampton have averaged exactly one goal per away game this season, while they have conceded at an average of 1.8 goals against them in their away games. Southampton have only the one clean sheet in their last six away games in the top flight, and overall this season they have managed a clean sheet in 24% of all league games. Six of Southampton’s 10 away defeats this season have been by a margin of at least two goals. As a positive Southampton have hit the back of the net in each of their last seven Premier League fixtures.

Who will win – Watford v Southampton Predictions
Watford have been a pretty reliable side on home soil this season aside from meeting big six teams. Southampton’s away form is still a bit questionable so it has to be the home win for us in this one, but it is worth backing both teams to score.
