Tip Watford - Southampton
Relegation worries are still lingering at Southampton and the loss to Newcastle in their last match did them no favors. They still need about seven points to ensure survival and when they take on Watford, they will be hoping to pick three. The Saints recently picked a win over a much tougher Wolverhampton Wanderers and based on that they should be looking at this as a winnable game but a run of four wins in 11 matches may betray their ambitions. Watford on the other hand, have six wins in their last 10 matches and perhaps at this stage in time, they are saving their best for the FA Cup final, where they are set to meet Manchester City. They have no clean sheet in eight matches and just four in their last 20 matches. Southampton have a win in the last five away matches but they have been scoring with some consistency; they have only failed to score in six of 17 away matches in the Premier League. Southampton are unbeaten in three matches against Watford and have lost to Watford just once in their last 11 meetings, winning five.
Key points Watford - Southampton
Southampton have one loss to Watford in their last 11 matches.
Watford have six wins in 10 matches.
Southampton have four wins in 11 matches.
Conclusion Watford - Southampton
Southampton have dominated Watford in the two sides’ past few matches, winning five and losing once in the last 11 but they head to this game in poor form as compared to Watford. But another dynamic in this game, will be the fact that Watford are eyeing a triumph in the FA Cup final and have no much to play for. This game may end in shared spoils; a 1 – 1 draw seems the most likely result.
