📏 Form Guide

Watford DLWLDL

Watford will be looking to improve on their last outing here following a 1-0 Premier League defeat last time out to Burnley. In that game, Watford managed 46% possession and 10 attempts on goal with 4 on target. Burnley got 9 attempts on goal with 5 on target. Jay Rodriguez (73') was the scorer for Burnley.

It has been all too rare in recent times where Watford have managed to hold out for a full 90 minutes. The facts show that The Hornets have been scored against in 5 of their previous 6 games, leaking 7 goals in the process. We will find out whether or not that trend will be continued on in this game.

Their past results show that Watford:

  • have not beaten Southampton in their last 4 league matches.
  • are unbeaten in their last 2 league matches at home.

Southampton LWLLWL

After tasting defeat last time out to Arsenal in Premier League action, Southampton and their travelling fans will hope for a better result here. In that match, Southampton had 52% possession and 12 shots on goal with 3 on target. On the other side, Arsenal got 10 attempts on goal with 5 on target. Eddie Nketiah (20') and Joe Willock (87') scored for Arsenal.

Ralph Hasenhüttl's Southampton have managed to stick the ball in the net a total of 7 times throughout their latest 6 matches. The number of goals that they have conceded during those matches comes to 8.

Looking at the pre-match facts, Southampton:

  • haven't won against Watford when having played them away from home in the previous 2 league matches.
  • haven't been beaten by Watford in games played away from home for the previous 6 league matches. A very decent away record against them.

🤜🤛 Head to head

A look at their prior head-to-head clashes dating back to 09/09/2017 tells us that Watford have won 1 of these games & Southampton 2, with the number of draws standing at 3.

An aggregate of 14 goals were scored between them in these games, with 7 of them for The Hornets and 7 created by The Saints. This gives an average number of goals per game equal to 2.33.

The previous league encounter between these sides was Premier League match day 14 on 30/11/2019 when it ended Southampton 2-1 Watford. On that day, Southampton had 63% possession and 11 attempts on goal with 6 of them on target. The goals were scored by Danny Ings (78') and James Ward-Prowse (83'). Watford had 6 shots at goal with 3 of them on target. Ismaïla Sarr (24') scored. The match was refereed by Michael Oliver.

📋 Team News: Watford

Daryl Janmaat (Knee Injury) and Gerard Deulofeu (Ruptured cruciate ligament) won’t be playing for Watford manager Nigel Pearson.

It looks as if The Hornets should make use of the 4-2-3-1 formation for this game and select Heurelho Gomes, Adam Masina, Craig Dawson, Kiko Femenia, Craig Cathcart, Etienne Capoue, Will Hughes, Tom Cleverley, Abdoulaye Doucoure, Ismaïla Sarr and Troy Deeney.

📋 Team News: Southampton

From a largely healthy group, there is just the lone fitness problem for the Southampton gaffer Ralph Hasenhüttl to contend with. Sam McQueen (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) won’t be in action.

We’re of the thinking that The Saints might make use of a 4-4-2 lineup, giving starts to Alex McCarthy, Kyle Walker-Peters, Jannik Vestergaard, Jan Bednarek, Ryan Bertrand, Stuart Armstrong, Jamie Ward-Prowse, Pierre Emil Højbjerg, Nathan Redmond, Danny Ings and Shane Long.

🔮 Prediction

We envisage that Southampton and Watford should both be able to find the back of the net here although it’s difficult to select a clear winner. Let’s see how this one goes, but it looks this could be a draw. We’re therefore tipping a very even match with a 1-1 scoreline when all is said and done.
