Kick Off – 19.45pm Wednesday 11th May 2016

Norwich play Watford at Carrow Road on Wednesday night in the Premier League, as the home side desperately look for a vital win the relegation battle.

The home side suffered a big blow in their bid for Premier League safety after losing 1-0 at home to Manchester United last time out, as Spanish international Juan Mata grabbed the only goal of the game at Carrow Road.

The defeat leaves the Canaries 19th in the Premier League table, four points off safety. Failure to win this clash could see Alex Neil’s side relegated to the Championship after just one season in the English top-flight.

The visitors suffered a 2-0 defeat at Liverpool last time out. Wales midfielder Joe Allen gave Liverpool the lead and Brazilian international Roberto Firmino scored a second goal in the second half to give the side from Merseyside the win.

The Hornets could still finish as high as eight in the Premier League, but could also finish as low as 16th place in the Premier League.

Facts And Figures

These two teams have only met once in the Premier League, which came earlier this season in the reverse fixture that saw Watford win 2-0.

The last four meetings between these two teams at Carrow Road in all competitions have seen each team record two wins. Norwich have scored two or more goals in three of those four meetings.

Watford have scored at least two goals in four of the last five meetings between these two teams in all competitions.

Norwich have lost their last four Premier League games and failed to score in any of those defeats. The Canaries have also won just one of their last eight Premier League games at home, losing five games in the process.

Watford have won just two of the last ten games in the Premier League. The Hornets have also won just two of their last ten away games in the Premier League and suffered seven defeats in the process.

Team Selection And News

The Canaries have a number of injury problems heading into this clash. Defenders Andre Wisdom and Timm Klose have been ruled out through injury alongside central midfielders Jonny Howson and Emmanuel Tettey. Defender Ryan Bennett is also a doubt for the crucial clash.

The visitors are without centre-back Tommie Hoban and central midfielder Valon Behrami and Etienne Capoue through injury, while another defender Joel Ekstrand is a doubt, as he has not featured at all in the top-flight this season.

Possible Norwich Team Selection

Ruddy, Pinto, Martin, Bassong, Olsson, Redmond, Dorrans, O’Neil, Brady, Hoolahan, Jerome

Possible Watford Team Selection

Gomes, Nyom, Cathcart, Prodl, Ake, Abdi, Suarez, Watson, Jurado, Ighalo, Deeney

Match Prediction

This is a vital clash for the Canaries as if they fail to win then they will be relegated to the Championship. Watford have been in poor form of late, but so are Norwich, so I believe these two will cancel each other out and the home side will be relegated.
