Watford halted a disastrous run of seven defeats in a row with a draw against Newcastle United last weekend. The Hornets broke hearts on Tyneside with an 87th-minute equalizer to ensure they didn’t slip into the relegation zone. It was hardly a vintage performance by the away side, but it was an important result for Claudio Ranieri’s men nevertheless.
The side will know that victory here is essential, but that might be easier said than done for a team that has found claiming three points extremely challenging ever since their remarkable 4-1 victory over Manchester United in November. Fans can at least feel some optimism that results will quickly improve, as Watford have been pretty active in the January transfer window.
Edo Kayembe, Samir and Hassan Kamara have all signed this month, and each improves clear weaknesses in the squad. All three started against Newcastle and Kamara in particular put in a fantastic performance which suggested that his £3.6m transfer fee may prove to be a bargain. All three feature again today.
Speaking of the Canaries, it’s quite remarkable that a win here would lift them out of the relegation zone. Less than a month ago the side had been written off as relegation fodder by fans and pundits alike, but under manager Dean Smith they have pulled themselves off the bottom of the table and now sit 18th.
The Norwich faithful are still giddy after an impressive 2-1 defeat of Everton at the weekend, and the goal will be to build on that with another result in Hertfordshire. And a Norwich win could well happen: the side's previous two Premier League wins this season came back-to-back, so perhaps the pattern will repeat.
Norwich may not have the deep pockets of relegation rival Newcastle United or even be able to compete with Watford in the spending department, but the plucky side is proving far more capable of producing results than many predicted. Smith will demand the same level of performance that his player gave him against Everton here.
Here's how they line up:
Watford: Bachmann, King, Cleverley, Pedro, Kamara, Sissoko, Femenia, Samir, Dennis, Kabasele, Kayembe.
Norwich City: Gunn, Aarons, Hanley, Gibson, Williams, Sorensen, Lees-Melou, Sargent, Idah, Pukki, Rashica.
