Norwich vs Watford Betting Tips and Predictions
The bottom two face off against each other this Friday night to get the weekend’s Premier League action off to a start. Norwich had started off the season so well, the highlight being the 3-2 win over Champions Manchester City. They’ve gone six games since then without a victory and have only collected one point. It’s an even worse story for Watford who haven’t won a Premier League match since beating Huddersfield 1-2 last April. Can either team take the three points here? Read on to find our value tip.
Norwich vs Watford Betting Tips and Predictions: Norwich
It’s all gone horribly wrong for Norwich, what had looked like a promising return to the Premier League has turned to dross and they desperately need to start getting points on the board if they’re going to survive in the Premier League. The only good thing to say is that their home form is at least better than their overall form. They’ve beaten Newcastle and Man City at home, gave Chelsea a good test and in the other two matches (defeats to Aston Villa and Man United) they have at least gotten on the scoresheet in 1-5 and 1-3 losses.
The Canaries have only faced off against the Hornets on 10 occasions at Carrow Road and have won 6, losing the other four so history is on their side here, just. In team news Norwich have a few long term injury worries but nothing new to report since their last match against Brighton & Hove Albion.
Norwich vs Watford Betting Tips and Predictions: Watford
As said above, Watford’s last win in the PL came in April. Of their 11 matches so far this season, they’ve drawn five and lost six. Of course the worst of those matches was the 8-0 loss away to Man City, since then things have slightly improved with three draws and two losses, but in those draws they only scored one goal.
Former manager Quique Sanchez Flores was brought back in to steady the ship but so far he’s obviously winless and on form it looks like Watford could go down this season, they certainly have enough talent in the squad to stay up they just need a win or two that would give them a confidence boost, against a Norwich side that are also desperate for a win though they might just cancel each other out here though.
In team news, Craig Cathcart and Tom Cleverely may return to the start XI, strikers Danny Webeck and Troy Deeney will remain absent though.
