Watford Prediction – Can Watford lift themselves out of slump?

Saturday’s hosts, Watford, sit three points adrift at the bottom of the Premier League table and four points behind Norwich City and safety prior to this important fixture at home against Sheffield United at their Vicarage Road ground.

The hosts have still yet to record their first win of the season as The Hornets have gained just 2 points out of the first possible 21 on offer thanks to back-to-back draws with Newcastle United and Arsenal, but just when you thought Watford might be staging a recovery, disaster struck.

An 8-0 humiliation at the hands of Manchester City was followed by a 2-0 defeat away at Wolves which means Watford have not only suffered back-to-back defeats but they’ve also conceded 10 goals in their last 2 matches in the Premier League.

It’s now 7 matches without a league win at Vicarage Road and confidence seems to have escaped the hosts who have been left floundering at the bottom of the table. Perhaps most important is the fact that Watford have failed to keep a single clean sheet from these last 7 home matches too.

Sheffield United Prediction – Can Aston Villa jump out of bottom three?

Sitting in 12th place are newly-promoted Sheffield United and their early performances certainly warrant their current league position as they’ve been the brightest starters out of the three promoted teams from the Championship so far this season.

The visitors started their return to the top flight with a well earned point in a 1-1 draw away at Bournemouth and then followed that up with a 1-0 home win against Crystal Palace which handed Sheffield United, Chris Wilder, a great start to life in the Premier League.

However, results have dropped off since despite Sheffield United’s efforts as The Blades have slipped to defeats against Leicester City, Southampton and Liverpool, although the latter result saw Sheffield United give Liverpool a run for their money.

On the positive side of things, United still remain unbeaten away from home in the Premier League this season as they’ve also taken a point off Chelsea with a 2-2 draw and registered a much needed 2-0 win at Everton.

  • Watford have failed to win any of their last 7 matches at home in the EPL
  • Watford have failed to keep a clean sheet in their last 7 matches at home

Betting Tips Verdict
