A cracking clash between two promoted teams both sitting on the same points in the league and both having impressive seasons, Watford will be hosts to Bournemouth in a game that could see one of them move above Liverpool in the League table. Watford have been seriously impressive this year, especially the front two of Deeney and Ighalo. While Ighalo is top scorer in the club Troy Deeney, captain and a leader in the club has been excellent this season and really has led the way for Watford in tough spots this season. Watford manager Sanchez Flores will look for more from Capoue , Anya and the midfied in general as Watford have scored just two goals from midfield this seaon.
Bournemouth made some nice moves in the January transfer window and former Arsenal youth player BenAfobe hasbeen quality since joining. Iturbe hasnt quite settled yet and Eddie Howe must find a way to get the talented attacker into his line up. Bournemouth look to Ritchie and Arter to lead the way for them from midfield. Incredibly Bournemouth have won three and drawn two of their last five away games. Overall though Bournemouth have lost there last three (all at home) and need to bounce back from that on Saturday in a game where they will probably fancy themselves to get something.
Three of the last four meetings between these two has finished 1-1 including the meeting earlier this season. While I like the draw in some spots I actually think there is more value in taking Watford here. Watford are generally very strong at home and while Bournemouth have definitely improved and are in the midst of their best away run of the season I think they struggle here against the Hornets. I am taking Watford to get thewin.
