Watford welcome Sheffield United to Vicarage Road on Saturday afternoon with the two teams in polar opposite form.
The Hornets will be looking to end a dreadful run, while the Blades have enjoyed a few positive performances against Everton and Liverpool respectively.
United have enjoyed a relatively positive start to life in the Premier League, their first in England's top flight since the 2006/07 season. Blades boss Chris Wilder will be delighted with the form his side have shown in previous weeks, putting in an intrepid performance against Liverpool, who were lucky to win 1-0, and beating Marco Silva's Everton 2-0 away from home.
20th vs 12th, south vs north, Sánchez Flores vs Wilder. Expect goals in this bottom half of the table clash.

Saturday's game at Watford has "come a little too early" for David McGoldrick, CW confirms. But he says the striker could still link-up with the Republic of Ireland squad next week. #sufc #twitterblades— James Shield (@JamesShield1) October 3, 2019

Head to Head Record
Watford and Sheffield United have shared 29 encounters, with Watford winning 12 to Sheffield United's ten, the teams drawing seven times.
There have been 66 goals scored in the 29 meetings, which averages out to 2.27 goals per game.
The Hornets have not enjoyed much success in the buildup to this fixture, winning only one of their last five games - a 2-1 victory over Swansea City in the League Cup.
Watford have only managed four goals in the Premier League so far this season - two of which came in the same game against Arsenal - with solitary strikes coming from Will Hughes, Roberto Pereyra, Tom Cleverley and Andre Gray.

Sheffield United, on the other hand, sit on a comfortable eight points with two wins, two draws and three losses so far.
Whilst the Blades have only scored seven, the joint fourth worst record in the league, they have only conceded seven, which is the same amount as second-placed Manchester City. Although they lost their last league game to Liverpool, the South Yorkshire side will take plenty of positives and confidence from that honourable performance.
Here's how both teams have fared in their last five fixtures.
|Wolves 2-0 Watford (28/9)||Sheffield United 0-1 Liverpool (28/9)|
|Watford 2-1 Swansea (24/9)||Sheffield United 0-1 Sunderland (25/9)|

|Newcastle 1-1 Watford (31/8)||Chelsea 2-2 Sheffield United (31/8)|
