A Watford vs Southampton live stream will give you front row seats when two Championship rivals lock horns on Sunday, with a place in the fifth round of the FA Cup awaiting the winner. You can watch the match from anywhere with a VPN.
Watford XI: Bachmann, Andrews, Sierralta, Hoedt, Lewis, Pollock, Asprilla, Kone, Chakvetadze, Martins, Bayo.
Southampton XI: Lumley, Stephens, Harwood-Bellis, Holgate, Meghoma, Rothwell, Charles, Dibling, Alcaraz, Adams, Mara.
Watford and Southampton share a common objective this season: winning promotion. Both sets of supporters would also enjoy an FA Cup run, though, and a place in the fifth round is the prize awaiting the victors at Vicarage Road.
Watford edged out Chesterfield in the third round. They are scoring plenty of goals under Valérien Ismaël — the Hornets have found the back of the net in each of their last 11 encounters — so Southampton's defense will be severely tested on Sunday.
At the same time, the Saints will be buoyed by Watford's relatively poor home record, which has seen them go four games without a win against Championship opposition in front of their own fans. Southampton beat Walsall 4-0 in the third round of this competition and are on a 21-match unbeaten run in all competitions.
The Saints have had more possession than any other team in the division this season, so we can expect them to control the ball against Watford. Tune in to find out which team will advance as we explain all the ways to watch a Watford vs Southampton live stream wherever you are.
