Watford confounded their critics with some excellent early-season form, however that appears to have come to an end and any faint hopes that they harboured of clinching a European berth at the end of the campaign have now all-but-vanished. Marco Silva is clearly an excellent manager but the interest shown by Everton has perhaps unsettled him and with just one win from their last nine outings in the Premier League, his Hornets side will be desperate to return to winning ways in front of their home fans on Saturday afternoon.

Watford now sit tenth in the Premier League as a result of this drop in form, however the squad is clearly capable of pulling some decent results out of the bag as demonstrated by their excellent recent win over Leicester City. They were unable to build on this however and subsequent defeats to Swansea City and Manchester City have left confidence at a low ebb, something which a win this weekend would go some way to putting right.

Southampton haven't exactly been setting the Premier League alight this term and following the sacking of Claude Puel, his replacement - Mauricio Pellegrino - has thus far found the going pretty tough. The Saints sit 17th in the league table after 22 matches with their last league win being against Everton in November. They managed an FA Cup third-round win over Championship side Fulham last time out, however it is league points that they desperately need and they will be in for a tough time when they travel to Vicarage Road for what looks set to be a closely-fought affair.

Both of these sides possess plenty in the way of top-class attacking talent but confidence is low in both camps despite their respective weekend FA Cup wins. The visiting Saints have managed a point from four of their away games this term however and while they struggle going forward, we believe that they are good value at 5/2 with BlackType Free Bet to head home with another point for their troubles on Saturday afternoon.
