Norwich City vs Watford English Premier League Betting Tips & EPL Picks
We have Norwich City vs Watford English Premier League Betting Tips & EPL Picks for the game this weekend.
The battle between the two sides in the bottom two of the Premier League table will kick off this weekend’s action on Friday night.
Neither side can afford to lose this game, and it will be an old-fashioned six-pointer in the dogfight to stay in the Premier League.
Norwich City Form
Norwich City have endured a difficult run of form over recent weeks. Their last victory in the top-flight was their famous success over Manchester City, but since then they haven’t won in six.
That run of form has seen them tumble down the table, and Daniel Farke will need wins to arrive quickly to steer them clear of any relegation talk.
The form of Teemu Pukki will also be a concern for the Canaries as he hasn’t scored since that win over City, and without his goals, they aren’t ever going to stay in the league.
Their last outing in the top-flight was at the Amex against Brighton & Hove Albion. That was a disappointing afternoon for the Canaries as they threatened very little in the attacking third and couldn’t hang on to the point.
They conceded two goals in the second half and were condemned to a place in the relegation zone for another week.
This is an important game for the club, and they can’t afford to slip up.
Watford’s wait for a first win of the season continued as they succumbed to a 2-1 defeat last time out against Chelsea. They started that game slowly and fell behind inside four minutes.
Christian Pulisic added a second after the restart. However, the Hornets were allowed back into the game as Chelsea gave away a spot-kick, which was subsequently scored.
Watford pushed for an equaliser in the final ten minutes, but in truth, they didn’t deserve to get the leveller. The closest they came was with the final kick of the game as Ben Foster saw his effort saved from his opposite number.
They will need to play better against the Canaries. Otherwise, Quique Sanchez Flores could be out of the job after less than two months in charge.
