THE PREDICTION

Watford picked up a massive three points in midweek thanks to Danny Welbeck’s stunner against Norwich and they will look to follow up on that win here. That will not be an easy task against this relaxed Newcastle side although it depends which version of Steve Bruce’s team turns up. They have understandably struggled in their two games against Man City but have produced some good performances elsewhere since the restart. With Bruce likely to revert to a more attacking line-up and Watford struggling to keep things tight at the back, this has all the hallmarks of a high-scoring affair making over 2.5 goals appealing.
