📊 Form Guide

Watford LWWLLL 📉

Watford won’t want a repeat of their last result here following a 3-2 Premier League defeat in their last game at the hands of Arsenal.

Arsenal got 13 attempts on goal with 5 of them on target. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (5', 33') and Kieran Tierney (24') scored for Arsenal.

It’s not been often in recent games that Watford haven’t conceded. The facts show that The Hornets have seen their defence breached in 6 of their previous 6 clashes, giving up 15 goals during that time.

📰 Team News: Watford

Daryl Janmaat (Knee Injury) and Nathaniel Chalobah (Corona virus) won’t be available for Watford boss Vladimir Ivić.

In all likelihood, The Hornets will probably use a 3-4-2-1 formation for this game featuring Ben Foster, Ben Wilmot, Christian Kabasele, Craig Dawson, Pervis Estupiñán, Tom Cleverley, Nathaniel Chalobah, Jeremy Ngakia, Domingos Quina, Tom Dele-Bashiru and Glenn Murray.

📋 Team News: Middlesbrough

Owing to a completely healthy squad ready to go, Middlesbrough manager Neil Warnock has zero fitness concerns at all before this clash.

From our viewpoint, The Boro seem likely to make use of a 3-5-2 lineup, going with Dejan Stojanovic, Anfernee Dijksteel, Grant Hall, Dael Fry, Djed Spence, Jonathan Howson, Lewis Wing, Marcus Tavernier, Marvin Johnson, Ashley Michael Fletcher and Britt Assombalonga.

⚡ Prediction

Looking at these two teams, we feel that Middlesbrough should be able to find the net against this Watford side, although it may not be enough to avoid defeat.

Our selection here is for a tight encounter finishing with a 2-1 win for Watford by the time that the referee blows the final whistle.
