Watford vs Southampton Predictions

Watford are teetering above the drop zone at the time of writing.

Southampton are down in 14th place in the table but 10 points above the relegation zone.

Watford are just one point from safety having suffered a narrow defeat at the hands of Burnley on Thursday. Southampton also lost on Thursday, going down to 2-0 to Arsenal.

Watford put up a good fight against Burnley but ultimately did not show enough going forward. Southampton have been unpredictable in recent weeks and Jack Stephen’s suspension may just open the door for Watford to take something.


Watford Form

Watford’s form has tailed off somewhat since Nigel Pearson first took charge but the Hornets are still in a good position given how things stated. Six points from a possible 27 is a little underwhelming and may well need to pick up during the final stretch.

Watford’s defence has suffered in recent games with just one clean sheet from their previous eight league fixtures. Their last three games have all been tight affairs with under 2.5 goals in them.

Ismaila Sarr scored in the reverse fixture but that wasn’t enough to take any points as Southampton won 2-1.

Gerard Deulofeu and Daryl Janmaat are both still out injured.


Southampton Form

Southampton have won just two of their last seven league games but find themselves comfortably in midtable. They have kept clean sheets in each of those wins but conceded two or more in four of their five defeats.

Danny Ings took his Premier League goal tally up to 16 for the season will a goal in the 3-0 win over Norwich after the restart. He is just three goals behind current top goalscorer Jamie Vardy.

The Saints have mixed record against relegation-threatened sides this campaign. Ralph Hassenhuttl’s side have won five and lost three of their eight games against the current bottom five.

Jack Stephens is suspended following a red card against Arsenal. Moussa Djenepo is also still serving a suspension.
