  • Watford head into this one full of confidence following a crucial 1-3 triumph away at fellow newly promoted side Norwich last weekend with winger Ismaila Sarr playing a starring role by bagging a brace against the Canaries.
  • Joao Pedro could be named in the matchday squad after a long period of time out due to a knee injury while Bachmann is struggling with a minor knee issue and that could see Ben Foster din the gloves once more.


  • Newcastle remain without a Premier League victory this season following their 1-1 draw with Leeds Utd last time out with Magpies continuing to verbally show their displeasure at manager Steve Bruce.
  • Callum Wilson has not recovered in time to feature here while Jamaal Lascelles and Joe Willock are absent in what is a double injury blow so Bruce will need to find alternatives in several areas of the pitch.



PREDICTED XI (4-2-3-1): Foster; Ngakia, Troost-Ekong, Cathcart, Rose; Kucka, Sissoko; Sarr, Cleverley, Bonaventure; King


QUESTIONABLE: Bachmann (Injured), Kiko Femenia (Fitness), Joao Pedro (Injured)


PREDICTED XI (5-4-1): Darlow; Manquillo, Hayden, Schar, Clark, Ritchie; Almiron, Hendrick, S. Longstaff, Joelinton; Saint-Maximin

UNAVAILABLE: Dummett (Injured), Lascelles (Injured), Willock (Injured), Shelvey (Injured), Wilson (Injured)

QUESTIONABLE: Dubravka (Injured), Woodman (Injured)


Watford will be riding the crest of a wave after their win at Norwich and will fancy piling the misery onto Newcastle, who have been blighted by poor results amid recent reports of training ground bust-ups between players and coaching staff. Such an environment will hardly contribute to a successful team and Newcastle have shown no signs of ending their terrible run, which has seen them accrue just two Premier League points so far this season. When taking this into account, the Hornets may be able to capitalise particularly when considering that they boast a gamechanger like Sarr in their side, so backing Watford via the draw no bet market looks to be a smart play.
