Watford News and Form – Can Watford get three points at Bournemouth?

What a surge Watford have put together since Nigel Pearson took over. It has been a W3 D1 record in their last four league games, which started with success over Manchester United. This would be an absolutely massive three points for the Hornets if they could stick them. Away from home this season it has been a rough ride for Watford with just a W1 D3 L6 record. They picked up a point at Sheffield United in their last away game. The notable difference between Watford under Pearson is their goal-scoring output.

They have scored a total of eight goals in their last four games. They had managed only five in their previous twelve. Gerard Deulofeu has scored the opening goal in two of Watford’s last three league games. Their goal scoring improvement on the road has a long way to go because the Hornets have only scored six away from Vicarage Road. They have managed just one clean sheet on their travels, conceding at an average of two goals per away game. 7 of Watford’s 10 league losses this season have been by a margin of at least two goals.
