Watford look like they are getting in good shape lately and now have a chance to create an undefeated streak. They will play host to Aston Villa on Saturday, who are also coming off a nice result at home.
Aston Villa (5-11-3) should be feeling thankful about the outcome of their last match, where they managed to beat Norwich by 0-1 at home. They really needed that win, as they were win-less in their previous five league matches (0-4-1). Aston Villa are now sitting at the 18th spot of the league table with 18 points, just one below the red line. They have the worst away record in the league (1-7-1), but have only failed to score in three of those matches.
Watford (2-10-7) fought really hard in their away match against Sheffield United and managed to hold out for a 1-1 draw. They have now grabbed five points from their last four matches (1-1-2) and could be in for some more points here. Watford are unstuck from the bottom spot and are now sitting at the 19th with 13 points, still six points below the red line. They have a 1-4-4 record at home but have scored just six goals there.
The last time these two met was back in 2015/16, where Watford won both matches by 2-3 and 3-2 respectively. But those were their only wins against Aston Villa over the years (2-3-1). Call me crazy but I am going with Watford to take the three points here.
