Southampton welcome Watford to Saint Mary’s as they look to continue their unbeaten run to the season. The Saints have drawn two games and won one in their opening three games, a record that is similar to their visitors.
After draws against the impressive Huddersfield Town and Swansea City and a win over West Ham, it is safe to say they have started the season well but that could change against the Hornets.
Watford has become a well-drilled side under Marcos Silva and their 3-3 draw with Liverpool shows just how resilient they have become. They are yet to taste defeat in the league this season, although they were lucky in their game against Brighton the last time. We expect them to perform better in this game and that could see this game becoming an entertaining affair.
We expect Watford to come into this game intent on beating Southampton for the first time since 2008 but the Saints will also be determined to win in front of their home fans.
Best bet in this game is for both sides to find the back of the net at least once.
