Watford face off against Wolves in a Premier League clash at Vicarage Road on Saturday in what should be an exciting clash.

The game will be a crucial one for both of the teams who will be going all out to try and win. Wolves enter the game in seventh position on the standings with 51 points after 35 games while Watford are just a point behind in eighth place.

This game could end up determining who will end up winning the opportunity to play in the Europa League next season.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s side will be fired up for this game after recording an impressive 3-1 victory against Arsenal on Wednesday. Watford played out to a 1-1 draw during their last game against Southampton on Tuesday.

The two sides met earlier this month during the semi-finals of the FA Cup and the Hornets went on to win 3-2. The last time that the sides met in the League was in October and Watford also won that game 2-0.

If Wolves end up losing Saturday’s game, it will be the first time that they would have suffered the Premier League double against the Hornets since the 2007/08 season.

The Molineux side are set to name a largely unchanged starting XI from the one which played against Arsenal, according to a report published by Sky Sports. 

The report added that Nuno has no fresh injury worries ahead of the game. Wolves have already exceeded expectations this season. A win in this game would further demonstrate what a quality job their manager has been doing and would leave them on the verge of securing Europa League football for next season.
