Watford prepare to entertain Southampton at Vicarage Road Stadium at lunchtime on Monday, looking to continue an impressive record. The Hornets are clearly on top, winning 10 and drawing 6 of the 17 games played.
The most recent encounter between these two sides at Vicarage Road Stadium was just last season, in November 2004, when they eased past their opponents in a high-scoring 5-2 thriller, in a League Cup match.
