Watford vs Brighton Preview

Watford started last season in fine form with four straight wins. Their opening match sees them welcome Brighton to Vicarage Road once again. On that occasion, a Roberto Pereyra brace sealed a comfortable opening weekend win for the Hornets. The campaign fizzled out once again for Watford, beating only already-relegated Fulham and Huddersfield in their final nine games.

Watford are used to making a fast start in recent years, having gone undefeated in their opening four games for the last two seasons. Remarkably, you’d have to go as far back as the 2006/07 campaign for the last time Watford lost their opening league fixture.

Brighton did reasonably well in their first year in the Premier League but struggled last season. Despite a tough year, culminating in the departure of former manager, Chris Houghton, Brighton did not find themselves in the relegation zone at any point. No wins in their final nine league games saw them limp over the line, just two points from the drop.

 

Watford vs Brighton Betting Tips

The appointment of Graham Potter brings renewed hope for the Seagulls. A more attacking approach is favoured by the new manager, with Chris Houghton’s negative tactics frustrating fans towards the end of his tenure.

Brighton were far from solid at the back, amassing just seven clean sheets last time around. With a more attacking style, their defensive prospects are unlikely to improve. Watford were equally unspectacular in the clean sheet department, equalling Brighton’s tally. With an expected upturn in goals for the Seagulls, both teams to score looks a smart investment at 19/20 and could be a pick for this weekend’s BTTS tips.

Watford should have enough to see them past a side settling into a new system. Their record of fast starts to a campaign and superior squad will likely be enough to grab all three points at home.
