Norwich vs. Watford – Prediction (Premier League – 08.11.2019)

Preview and Teams Comparison.

Norwich have won three of their last four league meetings with Watford (L1), with this the first such encounter since a 4-2 victory in May 2016 in the Premier League.

Going into this bottom-two encounter, Norwich City’s winless Premier League (PL) run stands at six games (D1, L5). The ‘Canaries’ have now failed to score in six of their last nine competitive matches, but have found the net in their last 22 home league fixtures, last failing to do so back in October 2018. Teemu Pukki is responsible for 33.65% of Norwich’s league goals across the last two seasons (35 out of 104). Nevertheless, entertainment hasn’t been in short supply considering all five of their PL home games have featured over 3.5 goals (W2, L3). Norwich will also fight until the end, knowing that they’ve scored from the 75th minute onwards in six of their last nine home fixtures.

Stat attack: Norwich have won three of the last four H2Hs, scoring a combined ten goals across those victories. Watford are yet to score a second-half away goal this PL season. Six of Norwich’s last nine competitive games produced under 2.5 goals.

Matters are much worse for rock-bottom Watford, who are yet to win a league game this season, and last secured all three points back in April (D6, L9 since). Failing to score in five of their last eight in all competitions highlights one main issue, as does no away league clean sheet since February. Gerard Deulofeu has netted seven of his last nine PL goals for Watford on the road – four of those seven were either the game’s first or last. Watford have conceded a whopping seven goals in the first 15 minutes of their PL games this season, which is one of the reasons they possess one of the division’s worst first-half records (W1, D4, L6). The fact they’ve lost six of the seven PL games when conceding first suggests they’re slow-starters, although they remain unbeaten in both games when scoring first themselves (D2).
