Watford play hosts to relegated Aston Villa at Vicarage Road on Saturday in the Premier League, as the visitors attempt to rescue some pride from an awful campaign.

Last time out in the Premier League the Hornets suffered a 3-1 defeat at West Ham, with their only consolation a Sebastian Prodl effort. Winger Nordin Amrabat was also dismissed late on in the clash.

The Hornets poor form continued into the FA Cup semi-final on Sunday, as the side from Herefordshire suffered a 2-1 defeat against Crystal Palace. Troy Deeney equalised for Watford, after Yannick Bolasie had opened the scoring early on.

However, Eagles striker Connor Wickham scored the winner just after the hour mark to take Palace into the final and eliminate the Hornets. Despite being midtable, there is now speculation over boss Quique Sanchez Flores position at the club.

Unsurprisingly Aston Villa suffered defeat last time out, as the Villans were beaten 4-2 at Villa Park against Southampton. The highlight of the game was a brace from midfielder Ashley Westwood, who had only previously scored three times in his whole Villa career.

The Villans are rock-bottom and are already relegated from the top-flight. In fact the Villans are 15 points away from safety. Villa fans will now be looking forward to the appointment of a new boss this summer and an end to a disastrous season.

Facts And Figures

These two teams have met just five times in the Premier League, with Aston Villa recording three wins, Watford winning just once and one game also finishing in a draw.

The two Premier League meetings at Vicarage Road have seen one Villa win and one draw.

Watford have won just two of the last ten meetings between these two teams in all competitions, although one of those wins came in the reverse fixture earlier this season.

Aston Villa have lost 11 of their last 12 games in the Premier League and have won just three times this season in the top-flight. Villa have also won just once on their travels this season, which came on the opening day at Bournemouth.

Watford have lost four of their last six Premier League games, claiming one draw and one win in that period.

Team Selection And News

Watford remain without third choice ‘keeper Rene Gilmartin and centre-back Tommie Hoban through injury, while centre-back Joel Ekstrand still lacks match fitness. Winger Nordin Amrabat will be available again after suspension.

For Villa young full-back Jordan Amavi is unlikely to play again this season, while Ciaran Clark and Kieran Richardson are doubts. Forward Gabriel Agbonlahor has been suspended by the club for off-the-field activities and may continue to miss out on the squad for this clash.

Possible Watford Team Selection

Gomes, Nyom, Cathcart, Britos, Ake, Jurado, Capoue, Watson, Abdi, Deeney, Ighalo

Possible Aston Villa Team Selection

Guzan, Hutton, Richards, Lescott, Cissokho, Sanchez, Gueye, Westwood, Sinclair, Gil, Ayew

Match Prediction

Watford’s form may have been poor of late and confidence may be low, but they face an Aston Villa team that is completely bereft of quality and organisation. I am going for a home win in this clash.
