Watford hosts Wolverhampton Wanderers at the Vicarage Road
Watford hosts Wolverhampton Wanderers at the Vicarage Road in a match from the 21th round of the Premier League. Here are our English Premier League predictions for this clash, are you ready?
Watford are looking like a completely different team since Nigel Pearson was appointed as a manager. The Hornets won two of their last three games in the league, doing one draw as well. Because of this great shape Watford are now 19th in the league with 16 points and getting closer to the safety.
It seems that the board’s decision to appoint Pearson was absolutely terrific. The experienced manager successfully changed his players’ mentality and now they are looking much more convinced in their own abilities. If Watford continues to perform like this then survival won’t be impossible for them.
In their previous game Watford hosted Aston Villa and crushed them with 3-0 at the Vicarage Road. Troy Deeney scored a brace, while Ismaila Sarr also put the ball in the net for the hosts.
But now the Hornets will have a very tough test against Wolverhampton Wanderers. Before visiting Liverpool on Sunday, Wolves were 7th in the league with 30 points and just three defeats from the beginning of the season.
On Friday Wolves hosted the champion Manchester City at the Molineux and enjoyed a 3-2 win. The hosts were two goals down against 10 of Man City, but with goals from Adama Traore, Raul Jimenez and Matt Doherty they reached the whole three points.
In our English Premier League predictions we think that this is going to be a very close game between Watford and Wolverhampton Wanderers. The hosts are looking improved at the moment, but Wolves are always very tough team to play against. Can Nigel Pearson continues to do his magic against such a strong opponent? Let’s see.
