The second match in the Premier League tonight sees Watford take on Southampton at Vicarage Road.
Watford can retake 7th place in the Premier League if they avoid defeat tonight – a spot that could yet be enough to qualify for next season’s Europa League. Meanwhile Southampton need a result to banish any lingering worries of relegation.
The match kicks off at 7.45pm, but it is not being shown live on TV in the UK. Here are the factz you need to know:
- Watford don’t have a good recent record against Southampton – winning just one of their last 11 meetings against them in all competitions. Saints have won 5 of those encounters.
- Saints have won 3 and lost 3 of their last 6 matches. Oddly, the past three matches have all ended 3-1.
- Watford have also won 3 and lost 3 of their last 6 matches. In among that run, they have also won two matches in the FA Cup.
- Gerard Deulofeu is Watford’s form man with 8 goals in his last 9 appearances in all competitions.
