THE TEAM NEWS

WATFORD

  • Watford are giving themselves a real chance of survival under Nigel Pearson after picking up seven points from their last three matches.
  • They beat Villa 3-0 last time out despite Mariappa's red card at 1-0 and that will force them into a change with Masina possibly coming in.
  • Hughes is an injury doubt coming into this game after coming off at half-time against Villa and Chalobah is expected to come into midfield.

Predicted line-up (4-3-3): Foster; Kiko Femenia, Dawson, Kabasele, Masina; Chalobah, Capoue, Doucoure; Pereyra, Deeney, Deulofeu

Unavailable: Holebas (Injured), Janmaat (Injured), Welbeck (Injured), Prodl (Injured), Cleverley (Injured), Mariappa (Suspended)

Doubtful: Hughes (Injured), Cathcart (Injured)

WOLVES

  • Wolves narrowly lost out against Liverpool last time out but they were extremely unfortunate that two big VAR decisions went against them.
  • Nuno Espirito Santo decided to leave some key players on the bench for that game but Doherty, Saiss, Traore and Jimenez should return.
  • He may decide to rest one of his central midfielders however so Bennett could retain his place at the back with Dendoncker in midfield.

Predicted line-up (3-4-2-1): Rui Patricio; Dendoncker, Coady, Saiss; Doherty, Joao Moutinho, Ruben Neves, Jonny Castro; Traore, Diogo Jota; Jimenez

Unavailable: Boly (Injured), Gibbs-White (Injured)

Doubtful: Cutrone (Illness)

THE PREDICTION

Nigel Pearson has sparked a revival at Watford who are enjoying a fine mini run of form and giving themselves a real chance of surviving the drop. Wolves have had a tight schedule over Christmas but have rotated their players well and should have too much quality for a makeshift Watford defence.
