Watford vs Southampton Predictions


Watford have had some poor recent results at Vicarage Road and Southampton look strong after a 21-match unbeaten run. Goals come frequently for the two sides and an away win and BTTS are solid selections.

Head-to-Head


Southampton have a 38-27 advantage against Watford in 88 meetings with 23 draws.

Watford Form


Watford are in inconsistent form after failing to win four of their last six matches. One of the Hornets’ only recent wins was a 2-1 FA Cup triumph over non-league Chesterfield.

After the Chesterfield win, Watford defeated Championship strugglers QPR (2-1). A 1-1 draw at Bristol City followed on Saturday.

Tom Dele-Bashiru’s 13th-minute penalty gave Watford the lead. The Hornets conceded 10 minutes later and couldn’t find a winner. 

Watford Injuries and Team News


Midfielders Ken Sema and Edo Kayembe are out.

Defender Jeremy Ngakia is also out. 

Southampton Form


Southampton broke their club record for consecutive matches without defeat after failing to lose in their last 21 matches. The Saints have won 15 fixtures during this run.

Russel Martin’s side are also on a three-match winning streak. Victories came against Walsall, Sheffield Wednesday (4-0) and Swansea (3-1).

Che Adams and William Smallbone struck in the opening 20 minutes against Swansea. Southampton conceded soon after before Flynn Downes scored a third to seal the points. 

Southampton Injuries and Team News


Forwards Samuel Edozie, Ross Stewart and Kamaldeen Sulemana are out.

Defender James Bree and midfielder Juan Larios are also ruled out.

Verdict

Watford’s form has been patchy and it’s hard to ignore Southampton’s recent strength. The Saints are playing with confidence, scoring goals and can keep their unbeaten run rolling with a cup win.
