Watford vs Southampton score prediction

Results this term suggest Watford are a vastly better side on the road than at Vicarage Road, which is expected given the pacey threats they boast on the counter-attack.

They shipped five in their previous home outing against Liverpool and although a similar scoreline is unlikely, they do look vulnerable defensively.

Southampton's profiligacy has undermined them this season, but it's always more promising to be creating the chances than not.

Prediction: Watford 1-2 Southampton
