Watford vs Sheffield United Prediction & Match Preview

Watford vs Sheffield United
England – Premier League
Date: Saturday, 5 October 2019
Kick-off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: Vicarage Road (Watford).

Given that Watford are the worst team in the cluster at the moment with just one measly point under their belt, Sheffield United will be eying the prospect of walking away with all three points and quite a few goals to go with it as they lock horns with each other after nearly a decade.

Watford vs Sheffield United Prediction

The Hornets can slump on further down the ladder as they have hit rock bottom with zero wins from seven games. Quique Sanchez Flores’s men have just not been able to live up to the expectations so far, even with home advantage intact, and have admitted defeat in two out of their last three Premier League games here.

Furthermore, the hosts are sporting a dismal two-match losing streak under their belt at the moment, which alone, has seen them concede ten unanswered goals in the back of their net.

Sheffield United are unbeaten in their last three outings, one of which was against the 2019 Europa League champions, Chelsea. The visitors also put a halt to Everton’s winning streak at Goodison Park the other week by posting a 2-0 scorecard in their favor at the end of the ninety minutes.

Taking into account Sheffield’s solid form on the road, it goes without saying that a defeat is certainly staring Watford in the face this weekend.

In addition, the visitors have found the back of the net post the restart in each of their last three trips on the road.

Considering that the hosts have also conceded after the break, in two out of their previous three home games, by all means, count on Sheffield United to breach Watford at least once in the latter forty-five minutes of the game.
