Watford v Norwich City team news.

Gerard Deulofeu, Daryl Janmaat and Isaac Success are still missing for the Hornets, but Watford manager Nigel Pearson doesn’t have any fresh injury concerns.

Norwich City have been decimated with injuries of late. Todd Cantwell will sit out this evening due to a hamstring injury, joining long-term absentees Christoph Zimmermann, Sam Byram, Grant Hanley and Moritz Leitner in the treatment room. Alex Tettey and Kenny McLean are also unlikely to feature for the Canaries.

Watford v Norwich City head-to-head.

Norwich have had a lot of joy at Vicarage Road in recent times, having only lost one of their last four games away at Watford. However, Watford won the reverse fixture 2-0 back in November, which was their first league victory of the season after 12 games.

Watford v Norwich City current form.

Norwich are on a run of six consecutive defeats in all competitions – the worst such run under the management of Daniel Farke. To compound the Canaries’ misery, they have failed to score in each of their last five Premier League matches.

Watford have only lost twice at home since December, but they have won just six of the last 33 points available to them in the Premier League, scoring just two games in four matches since the restart.

Watford v Norwich City match prediction.

Despite Watford’s downturn in form, it’s very hard to stake any claim for Norwich here. Daniel Farke’s side seem resigned to relegation, whereas Watford have it all to play for. A win for the Hornets would create a four-point buffer over the bottom three, and with upcoming games against the likes of Arsenal and Manchester City they’ll realise they won’t have a better chance of winning three points again this season. A comfortable 2-0 Watford win should put a smile on Nigel Pearson’s face.

Best bet for Watford v Norwich City.

Norwich have scored just six goals from 173 shots away from Carrow Road this season. Watford to win to zero is our pick.
