The Leeds United vs Watford live stream will see a sold-out Elland Road crowd attempt to cheer their side onto a first victory of the EPL season. However, Watford will be looking to continue building form after taking four points from their last two league fixtures.

Leeds United exploded back into the Premier League last year after being absent from the English top-flight for nearly a decade and a half. It's fair to say that so far this season the side have struggled to replicate the form that saw them impress so many neutrals. 

Leeds currently sit in 18th, without a victory in their first six matches. Though they'll feel hard done by after falling to defeat against West Ham last week courtesy of an own goal and a 90th-minute winner from the league's joint top scorer Michail Antonio. 

There haven't been many bright sparks for the Leeds faithful to cheer about so far this season, but the form of Raphinha has been welcome. Plus, the signing of Daniel James from Manchester United has given the team plenty of attacking threat down either wing. 

A lengthy injury list hasn't helped the Yorkshire side. Striker Patrick Bamford missed the clash against the Hammers and will be out of this match too, while the likes of Robin Koch and Luke Ayling are also out. However Diego Llorente returns up front and Raphinha is also fit to play, despite hobbling off against West Ham. 

Things are looking much rosier for the visitors. While many pundits had pegged Watford for an immediate return to the Championship after gaining promotion last season, the Hornets are proving they can cut it in this league. A comfortable 3-1 victory over Norwich a fortnight ago was followed up by a somewhat fortunate 1-1 draw against Newcastle United last week. They'll be looking to keep that run going against a Leeds United that looks a shadow of their former selves.

Here's how they line up:

Leeds United: Meslier, Firpo, Cooper, Raphinha, Llorente, Dallas, Rodrigo, James, Phillips, Klich, Shackleton.

Watford: Foster, Rose, Ekong, King, Tufan, Sissoko, Femenia, Sarr, Dennis, Sierralta, Kucka.
