Thanks to a mainly available group, there is only a single fitness problem for the Huddersfield boss Carlos Corberán to contend with. Carel Eiting (Knee Injury) misses out for this game.
Looking at these two teams, we feel that Watford look likely to fashion enough chances to find the net more than once while possibly not conceding when they come up against Huddersfield, who may well struggle scoring a goal of their own.
