West Brom v Watford: Premier League preview
Marco Silva’s Watford side take on West Bromwich Albion at the Hawthorns on Saturday.
West Brom head into the game three points behind Watford, following their 2-0 defeat at Arsenal on Monday night. The Baggies were hugely unlucky to not come away from the Emirates with a result.
Tony Pulis’ side were denied a blatant penalty in the first half after Shkodran Mustafi brought down Jay Rodriguez in the area. Arsenal were then awarded a soft penalty of their own, which was converted by Alexandre Lacazette.
The result leaves West Brom without a win in their last five in all competitions. They did, however, manage to keep a third Premier League clean sheet in their last league match at the Hawthorns.
Watford picked up all three points at Swansea last weekend, although they left it late. Tammy Abraham’s goal cancelled out Andre Gray’s opener before Richarlison scored the winner in second-half stoppage time.
Watford will be looking for a positive result with matches against Arsenal and Chelsea on the horizon.
