Watford are one point above the relegation zone and looking to get back to winning ways as they host Southampton on Sunday. Southampton are likely to make things tough for Nigel Pearson’s side, with nearly two-thirds of their points this season picked up away from home.

Watford Form


A 1-0 defeat at Burnley in midweek dealt a big blow to Watford's survival hopes. The defeat means Watford have now won just one of their last six Premier League games. 

Nigel Pearson’s side need to start picking up points if they are to avoid relegation, and sit just one point above the bottom three at time of writing. Watford have kept just one clean sheet in their last nine matches in all competitions.

Watford Team News


Daryl Janmaat (knee) remains sidelined, while Gerard Deulofeu is ruled out for the rest of the season.

Manager Nigel Pearson is expected to make changes to his starting line-up following the defeat at Burnley.

Southampton Form


Southampton have won just one of their last four league games, losing the other three. Their form away from home has been impressive however. 

They have won seven times on the road – only Liverpool, Manchester City and Chelsea have won more – and lost six (the same number of away defeats as Man City).

Southampton Team News


Southampton have doubts over Sofiane Boufal and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg. Jack Stephens is suspended along with Moussa Djenepo, who serves the last of a three-match ban.

Watford vs Southampton Head to Head


Watford have won just one of their past 13 matches in all competitions against Southampton. Four games at Vicarage Road have ended in a draw, while the Hornets have lost twice since beating the Saints there in 2007 in the Championship.

Watford vs Southampton Odds


Watford are 29/20 with bet365 at time of writing. Southampton are 2/1 favourites, with the draw available at 23/10.

Watford vs Southampton Match Up


Watford are running out of games if they are to secure their top-flight status and will be keen to pick up all three points this weekend.

The Hornets have plenty of fight about them, but Nigel Pearson’s side will have a tough afternoon against Southampton, who despite losing to Arsenal last time out have generally been hard to beat on the road.

The hosts will have to keep Danny Ings quiet if they are to get anything out of the game, which is easier said than done, and it’s hard to see Watford winning this one.
