The Newcastle United vs Watford live stream is set to be one of the most important fixtures of the weekend. The North London Derby might grab the headlines — and Man City vs Chelsea is another huge game — but this is a massive match at the bottom of the table. The result could have a serious impact on which teams get relegated at the end of the season.
Remarkably, a win here would see Newcastle United move out of the relegation zone. Despite only winning a single game this season, and losing three of their last four matches, safety is still within touching distance for the Magpies.
Newcastle will be boosted by the debut of new striker signing Chris Wood, while Kieran Trippier will also play his first EPL match in a black and white shirt. Both players fill significant holes in the club’s squad and are expected to be the first two of around five signings Newcastle’s new Saudi-Arabian owners will make during the January transfer window.
These new recruits haven't come a moment too soon; Newcastle United are badly in need of quality reinforcements if they are to avoid playing Championship football next season. Manager Eddie Howe hasn’t had the transformative impact on results some expected when he took the job in November 2021, but a win here would give the entire club a massive boost in its survival efforts.
Watford are also looking to enjoy the fruits of their transfer efforts in this match. Left-back Hassane Kamara, central defender Samir and midfielder Edo Kayembe have all joined the club in the last two weeks, and all feature against Newcastle.
These new signings will be especially important as Watford are currently in horrendous form. The team have lost their last six matches in a row, and have not picked up a single EPL point since beating Manchester United 4-1 on November 20. A win here is vital and would put some daylight between them and the drop zone.
The Hornets will be further boosted by goalkeeper, and YouTube star, Ben Foster and talisman striker Emmanuel Dennis returning to full training this week. Both start against Newcastle.
Here's how they line up:
Newcastle United: Dubravka, Trippier, Lascelles, Schar, Dummett, Fraser, Longstaff, Shelvey, Joelinton, Saint-Maximin, Wood.
Watford: Foster, Ngakia, Cathcart, Kamara, Kukca, Kayembe, Sissoko, Samir, Dennis, King, Joao Pedro
