Brighton vs Watford Match Prediction & Preview: Premier League

Brighton vs Watford Match Prediction

Brighton vs Watford Match Prediction

Brighton vs Watford Match Prediction: Watford will take on Brighton and Hove Albion at the Vicarage Road on 10th August 2019. Brighton had a tough run last season after their promotion to the top tier and merely escaped relegation, finishing the season at 17th position. Brighton lost 20 matches and won only 9, while 9 of their games resulted in a draw. Brighton’s poor form cost their manager Chris Hughton his job, and Graeme Potter has arrived from Swansea to take the reins. Goals came far and few for the side and that was their real problem.

Watford didn’t have a great season either, losing 16 of their 38 matches played, and winning just 14 of them, while 8 resulted in a draw. They won only 3 of their last 11 matches and hence, dropped out of the top half of the table, in what was an otherwise impressive campaign for the side.

Brighton vs Watford Key Player:

Leandro Trossard – The Belgian footballer sealed a move from Genk, who scored 14 goals and 7 assists last season and could pose a goal-scoring threat for the Seagulls.
Shane Duffy – The tall central defender was a pivotal figure at the back for Brighton, who helped them keep 7 clean sheets. He was also dangerous on set-pieces as he scored 5 goals for his side.

Abdoulaye Doucoure – He is a key player for Watford in the middle of the park as he gives them more stability. He did exceedingly well in the last couple of seasons and even scored 5 goals last season, playing as the deep-lying midfielder. Big Premier League sides like Arsenal and Everton tried to bid for the Frenchman, but somehow Watford has done well to hold him for the 2019/20 season and would expect him to do well.
Danny Welbeck – Welbeck has sealed a transfer from Arsenal and would be itching to go hard. He only got 4 matches last season for Arsenal where he scored twice and could be a big player at Watford.
Troy Deeney – Last season we saw what damage the strike partnership of Andre Gray and Troy Deeney could do to the opposition. Troy Deeney scored 9 goals, and got 5 assists and would once again be a big threat for the opposition.

Brighton vs Watford Predicted Starting XI:
Brighton: Ryan, Webster, Dunk, Duffy, Montoya, Bernardo, Propper, Bissduma, Maupay, Trossard, Murray.
Watford: Foster, Kiko Femenia, Cathcart, Dawson, Holebas, Capoue, Doucoure, Hughes, Pereyra, Deeney, Deulofeu.

Brighton vs Watford Match Prediction:
Looking at the recent form Brighton looks a better club and has a better chance of winning the match. Although it will be a close shave, Brighton has an upper hand. The game could go 2-1 in favor of the away side.

Brighton vs Watford Potential Goal Scorers:
Troy Deeney and Deulofeu would be the prime goal-scoring suspects. For Brighton, Glen Murray or Trossard could be the ones to get the goal.
