In the Premier League on Saturday, Steven Gerrard’s Aston Villa welcome Roy Hodgson’s Watford to Villa Park. After the disappointing defeat at St James’ Park last time out, the Villans will be looking to get back to winning ways in this one. The Hornets are in freefall, failing to win the league since that famous 4-1 home success over Manchester United on 20th November. Aston Villa are the clear favourites here, and we have the latest odds and tips.

Aston Villa Preview – Will the Villans bounce back with a vital victory?

Aston Villa have certainly improved since Steven Gerrard took over. The former England captain has guided the Villans to wins over Brighton & Hove Albion, Crystal Palace, Leicester City, Norwich City and Everton.

Villa had won one and drawn two of three before Sunday’s trip to Newcastle United. It was a tight and tense affair at St James’, with Kieran Trippier’s deflected free-kick earning the Magpies a precious 1-0 victory. That was Villa’s first league loss since a 2-1 reverse at Brentford on 2nd January.

Our betting prediction:
Aston Villa to win to nil

(odds taken 0918 GMT, Friday 18 February)

Only Chelsea and Manchester City have beaten Gerrard’s Villa at Villa Park, and the Midlands club will be looking for a routine victory on home soil this Saturday. The bookies are offering just 3/5 for the home win.

Watford Preview – Hornets to suffer another damaging defeat?

Watford have hit a miserable run of form over the past few months. They have gone on to lose ten and draw two of 12 league and cup games since beating Man United 4-1 at Vicarage Road in the league back in November.

Claudio Ranieri was sacked after Norwich beat the Hornets 3-0 at Vicarage Road in late January. The experienced Roy Hodgson was announced as Ranieri’s successor. Hodgson started with a good 0-0 draw at Burnley, but defeats to West Ham United and Brighton & Hove Albion have followed.

Watford have not won away from home since beating Everton 5-2 at Goodison Park back in October. This will be another tough away test for the struggling Hornets. You can get 5/1 for the Hertfordshire club to pick up a surprise win, however.


Aston Villa vs Watford Betting Advice

Both teams had different managers in the dugouts when they met at Vicarage Road on the opening weekend of the season. That day, Xisco Munoz’s Watford beat Dean Smith’s Aston Villa 3-2 in a five-goal thriller in Hertfordshire.

Villa won 3-2 in the last meeting at Villa Park, but that remains their only victory over the Hornets in five. Three of the last five have ended 3-2.


Key Facts – Aston Villa vs Watford Betting Tip

  • Villa have won five, lost five and drawn two of 12 PL games under Gerrard
  • Watford have failed to win since beating Man United 4-1 in November
  • Aston Villa have won just one of the previous five meetings


Watford edged an entertaining encounter back in August, but we can see them getting retribution on Saturday. This could be a comfortable win for Gerrard’s boys, and there is good value in 8/5 for the hosts to be winning at half time and full time.

Young Jacob Ramsey has caught the eye with several superb performances of late. The 20-year-old has netted three in his last four, including a brace in a recent 3-3 draw with Leeds United. Ramsey is priced at 8/1 to open the scoring in this one.
