The Watford vs Newcastle United live stream will see Watford look to build upon their impressive 3-1 victory over Norwich City last weekend, and put the pain of a midweek Carabao Cup exit behind them. 

Facing a Newcastle side that hasn't won all season looks like the perfect fixture for the newly promoted Hornets to continue proving they belong in the Premier League.

Watford were tipped by many pundits for an immediate return to the Championship, but are giving the Premier League a real go. An opening day victory against Aston Villa was followed by a string of disappointing results, but a 1-3 victory over Norwich during the last game week has the Hornets once again looking deadly

The midweek Carabao Cup defeat to Championship side Stoke was disappointing, but fans are aware that the focus this season is on preserving the club's EPL status. Practically the entire first team was given a rest during the Stoke game, so the likes of Ismaila Sarr, Josh King, and Tom Cleverly will all come back into the fold here.

Watford really couldn't ask for a better opposition to face next. Newcastle United are a team that looks in serious trouble at the moment. Not only have The Magpies failed to register a victory yet this season, but they've also conceded 13 goals in just five matches. That's the second worst defensive record in the entire league, behind only Norwich. 

Winger Allan Saint-Maximin has been the team's sole bright spark. He scored a fantastic goal in the side's 1-1 draw with Leeds, but otherwise, there hasn't been much for the Newcastle faithful to feel optimistic about. Furthermore, the tension between the fanbase and manager Steve Bruce is still bubbling away; a defeat here could see things really boil over. 

With both sides very much in need of a result, this match could be quite cagey. The winner could be decided based on who manages to score first, although a draw does seem the most probable result. 

Here's how they line up:

Watford: Foster, Rose, Cathcart, Femenia, Dennis, Sissoko, Kucka, Sarr, Cleverley, King

Newcastle United: Darlow, Ritchie, Clark, Fernandez, Hayden, Manquillo, Joelinton, Longstaff, Willock, Almiron, Saint-Maximin
