Watford team news: Important trio will miss game against Norwich

Relegation candidates Watford will be looking to secure a valuable three points when they face off against basement club Norwich City at Vicarage Road on Tuesday.

The Hornets have lost their last three consecutive games and are without a win in five games.

The last time that Watford won was against newly crowned Premier League champions Liverpool in February. 

The game against the Canaries presents them with a golden opportunity to secure three points and gain some confidence.

Daniel Farke’s side looks very likely to be relegated. They are rooted to the bottom of the standings and are six points adrift of nearest rivals Aston Villa.

Watford boss Nigel Pearson does not have any fresh injury concerns heading into the game, according to BBC.

The report added that he will have to make do without the services of long-term injury casualties Gerard Deulofeu, Daryl Janmaat and Isaac Success.

In the reverse fixture which took place in November, Watford recorded their first victory of the season in their 12th game by claiming a 2-0 win at Carrow Road.

The fact that Watford recorded an away win against the Canaries is something which Pearson’s side will take confidence from.

Watford’s recent home record against Norwich is not impressive. They have won just one out of their previous four away games against them.

Pearson’s side needs to find form again soon if they want to avoid relegation. They have earned just six points from the last 33 which was available to them in the Premier League.
