Watford vs Southampton Match Preview
Watford have the chance to move three points clear of all their rivals for what could be an important seventh-place finish in the Premier League table if they win this game in hand.
The Hornets would qualify for next season’s Europa League by beating Manchester City in the FA Cup Final, but with that being a 5/1 chance with bookmaker bet365 then it is probable that the club finishing seventh will claim England’s final berth in the continental competition.
None of the contenders for that status have been completely convincing of late – although Everton did themselves a big favour with their 4-0 thrashing of Manchester United – and so Watford can establish themselves as clear favourites for seventh place with victory here.
Javi Gracia’s side won 2-1 at Huddersfield on Saturday whereas Southampton lost 3-1 at Newcastle despite having more of the game against a team who have built their recent good run on a counter-attacking style.
Ralph Hasenhuttl should not have been too dispirited by the performance on Tyneside and his team had won three of their previous four games to pull away from relegation trouble.
Southampton have a strong head-to-head record against Watford, who still have Troy Deeney suspended, and they look capable of claiming a point.
