Watford will start the match at 9th position in the table, but are just 5 points behind the fifth placed Manchester United. They Hornets are in with a good chance to qualify for Europa League next season, but they must better their performance after managing just 2 wins in the last 9 matches.

Bournemouth are 15th in the table and are just 4 points above the relegation zone. With 12 more matches to go into the season, there is much to play for if the Cherries are to stay in the Premier League this season.

Watford are in the slight risk of undoing their good work in the early half of the season after losing 5 of their last 9 matches. They managed only 2 wins in the process.

The Hornets have failed to score in 4 of their last 6 matches Premier League matches. Only 2 of their last 6 matches have seen over 2.5 goals.

Watford have won 3 of their last 6 home matches, with 1 draw and 2 defeats. Their last home match in Premier League ended in a 0-0 stalemate against Chelsea and four matches before this saw over 2.5 goals.

Bournemouth have only won 2 out of their last 9 Premier League matches, a stats pretty similar to Watford’s.

While playing away from home, Bournemouth have only lost in 1 out of their last 7 matches, with 3 wins and 3 draws.

Watford: Team News

Jurado is a doubt for Bournemouth, while Tommie Hoban and Joel Ekstrand are out with injuries. Quique Sanchez Flores used a 4-3-3 system against Crystal Palace in the last league outing and also against Leeds in the weekend FA Cup tie. He is expected to use the same formation against Bournemouth.

Watford : Predicted Lineup (4-4-3)

Gomes – Ake, Britos, Cathcart, Nyom – Behrami, Watson, Capoue – Ighalo, Deeney, Amrabat.

Bournemouth: Team News

Callum Wilson, Max Gradel and Tyrone Mings are long term absentees for Bournemouth and manager Eddie Howe has no other injury concers. No surprises are expected in the usual team that has done the job for the Cherries for majority of the season.

Watford Predicted Lineup (4-1-4-1)

Boruc- Smith, Francis, Cook, Daniels – Surman – Ritchie, Gosling, Arter, Stanislas – Afobe.

Watford vs Bournemouth: Prediction

It is hard to separate the teams looking at their recent form. Moreover 3 of their last 4 meetings have ended in a 1-1 draw, with the latest one coming in this season clash at Dean Court.

Bournemouth perform better in away matches that at their home and could make things difficult for Watford on Saturday. My Pediction for this match is another scored draw.
