- Norwich’s 1-0 defeat away at Arsenal last time out means that the Canaries are now the only side remaining in the Premier League not to have picked up a single point after four league fixtures.
- Head coach Daniel Farke will be hoping to have full-back Bali Mumba and forward Josh Sargent available for this one and could also switch up his starting line-up with the likes of Todd Cantwell, Billy Gilmour and Ozan Kabak all pushing for a place in the first XI.
- Watford’s losing run in the Premier League extended to three games after their 0-2 loss at home to Wolves last weekend, meaning that they have yet to add to their three points accrued since beating Aston Villa on the opening weekend of the season.
- Ben Foster is available again while defender Kiko Femenia and midfielder Dan Gosling will all undergo late fitness tests ahead of the trip to Carrow Road, although Joao Pedro is out of contention with a knee injury.

Whilst still very early on the season, this does feel like a crucial encounter for both Norwich and Watford, with the two newly promoted sides having lost seven of the eight Premier League matches featuring one of the two teams so far in this campaign. Norwich especially, will be eying this match up as a huge opportunity to gain three points having been dealt a particularly tough opening run of fixtures leading up to this one. Against a Watford side who have failed to score in each of their last three league games, with all of those ending in defeat, Norwich are expected to push bodies forward and take the game to their opponents at every opportunity. Crucially for the Canaries is that they have a proven Premier League goalscorer in striker Teemu Pukki and with home advantage also in their favour, this may well prove the difference between the two teams. With that in mind, back Norwich to win here, using the draw no bet market for extra insurance.
Tip: NORWICH DRAW NO BET
