Watford finally put an end to their win-less streak but they had n even worse opponent against them. They will now remain at home for their next task, where they will play host to Newcastle on Saturday. Newcastle are coming off a really bad loss on the road against Manchester City and literally have nothing to play for.
Watford (7-17-10) conceded a really early goal in their home match against Norwich but they did manage to overturn the lead in their favor to eventually win by 1-2. That was their first win after a five-match win-less streak (0-4-1). Watford are sitting at the 17th spot of the league table with 31 points, as many as West Ham above them, while both teams are four ahead of the relegation zone. Watford have been mediocre at home so far (5-6-6), winning just two of their last seven (2-2-3).
Newcastle (11-13-10) are coming off a really tough match on the road, where they were blasted with a harsh 0-5 in the hands of Manchester City. Oddly enough, they have only lost two of their last nine matches in all competitions, and they lost both to Manchester City (4-2-3). They are sitting at the 13th spot of the league table with 43 points, scoring 35 and conceding 50 goals so far. Newcastle have a 5-10-2 record on the road, having scored 17 goals so far, against 35 conceded.
The two teams split the points in a 1-1 draw in the reverse fixture, which was the third draw between the two in the last five H2H (1-1-3). Watford have been solid as hosts against Newcastle in recent years, having lost just one of the last ten here (4-1-5).
