Betting prediction: Watford 0-2 Aston Villa

Aston Villa head into the new season with a great sense of optimism following a strong transfer window.

Despite losing star man Jack Grealish, Villa have managed to recruit the likes of Emi Buendia, Leon Bailey and Danny Ings.

Dean Smith will also be looking to make a big improvement on their 13th place finish in the 2020/21 season.

Watford are back in the Premier League following just a one-year absence from the top flight.

The Hornets secured second place in the Championship last season, as Xisco Munoz guided his side back to the Premier League at the first time of asking.

Danny Ings to score first. Aston Villa shocked everyone last week as they announced the signing of Danny Ings.

The striker is set to lead the line for Villa on Saturday, with Ollie Watkins unlikely to feature due to injury.

Ings signed for Villa having netted 12 league goals last season, and he is 5/1 to find the back of the net first on Saturday.

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.
