Watford vs Bournemouth: Premier League preview

Watford host Bournemouth at Vicarage Road on Saturday.

Watford head into the weekend one position and two points behind 10th-placed Bournemouth. Javi Gracia’s side suffered a 5-0 defeat at Liverpool prior to the international break and a 3-0 defeat at Arsenal before that.

Watford’s home record makes for much better reading. They have won four and drawn one of their last five matches at Vicarage Road in all competitions.

Watford have a reasonable overall record at home this season, although their defence has been far from impressive. No side has conceded more goals at home than Watford.

Bournemouth were also one of the eight teams to play a fortnight ago. Eddie Howe’s side ended a four-match winless run by beating bottom side West Brom 2-1 at home. Jordon Ibe and Junior Stanislas scored late goals as the Cherries came from behind to win 2-1.

Bournemouth have picked up more points than Arsenal on the road this season.

Watford won the reverse fixture 2-0 at the Vitality Stadium in August. Richarlison and Etienne Capoue scored for the Hornets.
