Reason for Watford vs Norwich Predictions
It is Match Day 23 in the Premier League, and Watford will be playing host to Norwich as the two sides aim to take a big leap in their quest to avoid relegation. There’s just one point between the two sides, Watford, placed 17th with 14 points, and Norwich, 18th with 13 points. Without a number of their players currently at the AFCON tournament, Watford managed to avoid defeat for the first time in eight matches when they drew 1-1 with Newcastle United in their last game. They will wish to build on it here, and one area they can start from is in attack, having failed to score in just two matches of the last 10. Joao Pedro saved the team from imminent defeat with an 87th-minute goal in the previous game, his second goal in as many matches. Sissoko plays well in the middle of the pitch, and he does not allow the opponent much action. Emmanuel Dennis enjoys the field, and when he receives the ball and goes towards the goal, the opponent has problems. He is strong, and it isn’t easy to keep this guy. Kwadwo Baah (Ankle Fracture), Peter Etebo (Knee Injury), and Ismaïla Sarr (Ligament Injury) will not be able to play for Watford manager Claudio Ranieri. Ineligible players who cannot play in this game through suspension are Imrân Louza and Adam Masina.
Norwich City revived their survival hopes with a 2-1 home win over Everton and will be looking to rise from the red zone for the first time this season with a win here. Lately, there has been some positivity in the Norwich camp, with a win over Charlton Athletic in the FA Cup then the victory over Everton. Two wins in three games are the solid ground for them to build on, and the fact that they’ve failed to score in three of their last five matches should come as a big concern. Norwich will, however, look at this as an opponent they can overcome though five straight losses to Watford ahead of this game should worry Dean Smith. Billy Gilmour found the right role in the team, he moves great in the middle of the field, and it isn’t easy to take the ball away from this guy. The bench players are expected to show as much as possible and impose themselves on the coach for the starting lineup. Norwich City boss Dean Smith has a number of players out of action. Mathias Normann (Pelvis Injury) and Billy Gilmour (Ankle Injury) will not be playing here.
It is going to be an exciting clash, as Norwich is not without a chance of remaining undefeated. However, we believe Watford should meet the expectations and deliver a win.
The prediction for this match is over 2.5 goals. We hope that football fans will enjoy this match.
