Watford go into the weekend languishing in the bottom three, three points behind 17th placed Everton, who face Manchester United. A win for the Hornets would give their hopes of survival a huge boost.

Leeds are a couple of places, and six points, clear of the drop zone. A win would likely see them guaranteed Premier League football next season. Their form has slowly picked up under new boss Jesse Marsch; they beat Norwich and Wolves, before a James Ward-Prowse free-kick meant they had to share the points with Southampton last time out. 

Watford put in a stubborn performance against Liverpool last weekend but eventually lost 0-2 to the title-chasers. Their only victory in their last six matches was a 1-2 win away at Southampton, with Cucho Hernández claiming both their goals. They will need more of his ruthlessness in front of goal on Saturday and beyond. 

Worryingly, Watford have lost their last eight games at Vicarage Road. Despite this poor run, Roy Hodgson sees the game as an “opportunity” for his team.

The injury picture is still mixed for Leeds, as it has been for much of the season. Kalvin Phillips has returned to the bench for the Whites, but Patrick Bamford is among those still out. Here's how they line up:

Watford: Foster, Femenia, Kabasele, Samir, Kamara, Louza, Sarr, Sissoko, Kucka, Hernandez, Joao Pedro.

Leeds: Meslier, Ayling, Llorente, Cooper, Dallas, Klich, Koch, Raphinha, Rodrigo, Harrison, James.

Can Watford claim a win and keep their survival hopes alive, or will Leeds deal them a near-fatal blow and likely cement their place in next season’s Premier League? Find out by watching the Watford vs Leeds live stream, and we will show you how below.
