Watford vs Aston Villa: Match preview
Watford made an immediate return to the top flight, as they finished runners up in the Championship.
Xisco Munoz took charge of the team in December, and took them on an impressive run to secure promotion.
However, following a fairly underwhelming transfer window, the Hornets could be a bit short of quality to keep them up.
Emmanuel Dennis was signed for £9M, whilst Danny Rose, Josh King and Ashley Fletcher have been brought in on free transfers.
Ismaïla Sarr will be a player to keep an eye on this season, with the winger having impressed during his previous season in the Premier League.
In contrast, Aston Villa have had an eye-catching transfer window, during which they have had to replace Jack Grealish.
Villa have managed to sign the likes of Emi Buendia, Leon Bailey and Danny Ings, making them a really strong outfit.
Dean Smith’s side produced some impressive performances last season, but ultimately finished in a disappointing 13th place.
This season, they are eyeing a potential European finish, given the quality of additions to this point in the summer.
