Watford face a must-win game on Gift Day, when they want to stay out of the bottom three of the Premier League table. They travel to Molineux to take on Wolves, as the hosts look for their second win in three matches.
Premier League Preview
Many Wolves fans have been disappointed by the start to the season they have enjoyed, but the league standings look pretty good. The team from Black Land has won 7 of the 18 matches played and conceded only 14 goals, which is the 3rd best defensive record in the league after Manchester City and Chelsea.
However, it is their struggle in the last third of the field that is most worrying. Despite sitting in 8th place in the table, Wolves have only scored 13 goals this season, the second lowest in the Premier League, as only Norwich have scored fewer goals. However, their situation could be even better if they land a win over struggling opponents on Gift Day, as they are likely to end the day as high as a Friday. They were in good form in the match, as they were unbeaten in two games.
Watford desperately need a change of fortune, as Claudio Ranieri can feel the pressure he’s building. Currently, The Hornets are just above the relegation group, while Burnley also has an opening match against the opponent. Just two points separate the sides.
No team in the Premier League has lost more games than Watford this season, as they have been beaten 11 times. However, they are the third-highest scorer in the bottom half of the standings, but their defense has been weak throughout the season. The Hornets come into this game having lost their last four games.
Wolves vs Watford
Wolves won the last game between these two teams in the Premier League earlier in the season. Meanwhile, Watford have not beaten Wolves away from home since October 2018. The home team has won 3 of the last 4 encounters with the Hornets.
Wolves vs Watford Prediction
Wolves are a difficult team to play this season as they have not conceded many goals. However, Watford’s defensive record is the key factor here, as we could see them conceding on the road and losing this game 1-0.
