Kick Off – 15.00pm Saturday 23rd January 2016

Watford host Newcastle at Vicarage Road on Saturday in the Premier League, as the visitors attempt to build on victory last time out.
Watford’s form has taken a turn for the worse in the last month, as the Hornets have now suffered four consecutive defeats in the Premier League. Last time out Quique Sanchez Flores’ team suffered a 1-0 defeat at struggling Swansea on Monday night, with Swans defender Ashley Williams grabbing the only goal of the game.
They are now 12th in the Premier League table, but appear to be relatively comfortable in midtable. They do need to start winning games again though and will see this as a must-win game to get their season back on track.
Newcastle claimed a valuable 2-1 win at home against West Ham last time out. The Magpies came out the traps very fast and took the lead through Ayoze Perez, before star midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum doubled the lead.
West Ham got a goal back in the second half through substitute Nikica Jelavic, but could not find an equaliser and the Magpies hung on for a crucial victory. The victory temporarily moved the Magpies out of the relegation zone, but the north east side were back in the bottom three on Monday night after Swansea claimed a win against Watford.

These two teams have met just five times in the Premier League. Newcastle has recorded two wins, two games have been drawn and Watford has won once, which was earlier this season in the reverse fixture.
Both the previous Premier League meetings between these two teams at Vicarage Road have finished in 1-1 draws.
Quique Sanchez Flores has faced Newcastle twice and emerged victorious on both occasions. The Spaniard also has the same record against Steve McClaren.
McClaren has a decent record against Watford though, recording four wins from seven meetings, losing twice and claiming one draw.
Newcastle has lost 13 of their last 16 away games in the top-flight.
There have been over 2.5 goals scored in Watford’s last three home games in the Premier League.

Team Selection & News

The home side are likely to still be without defensive pair Tommy Hoban and Joel Ekstrand, as well as third choice ‘keeper Rene Gilmartin. The Hornets could give a debut to new signing Nordin Amrabat after the winger completed a £6.1million move from Malaga earlier this week.
Newcastle now have a major injury crisis. Tim Krul, Mike Williamson, Massadio Haidara, Steven Taylor, Kevin Mbabu, Siem de Jong, Gabriel Obertan and Papiss Cisse are all out injured, while Cheick Tiote is unlikely to be considered because he is discussing terms with another club.

Possible Watford team line-up: Gomes, Nyom, Cathcart, Prodl, Ake, Amrabat, Capoue, Watson, Jurado, Ighalo, Deeney

Possible Newcastle team line-up: Elliot, Janmaat, Mbemba, Coloccini, Dummett, Colback, Shelvey, Sissoko, Wijnaldum, Perez, Mitrovic
