Watford v Southampton

On Tuesday I posted the below tweet, so it’s no surprise that this is the most interesting Premier League game of the day for me, especially having now backed Watford for the drop at 15.0

The Hornets look absolutely primed for relegation. They started the season well by overachieving on their expect returns, but have now only won three of their last fourteen matches since their victory over Arsenal. Watford are currently scoring from 47.69% of their shots on target, they will not keep that up. They are taking 65% of their shots from within the penalty area which will help their cause, but it’s very unlikely that they will end the season with a higher SOT:Goal % than they have now. Another worrying factor for Watford is the number of injuries and suspensions that they have picked up, this has now left them on the verge of a relegation scrap despite currently being tenth.
