Watford full 2015/16 Premier League fixtures

Watford are preparing for their first Premier League season since 2007.

Last season, Watford secured promotion to the Premier League, finishing second in the Championship and impressing with their attacking play and goal threat.

Sitting top of the second division table heading into the last game of the campaign, the Hornets could not see through those final 90 minutes with a victory, meaning that Bournemouth claimed the title - with the Hertfordshire-based club going up automatically in second place.

They are preparing for their first season back in the Premier League since the 2006/07 campaign, when they were relegated as bottom club.

Hopes are much higher this time around under the stewardship of the Pozzo family, with recently appointed head coach Quique Sanchez Flores looking to keep the club in the top flight, before establishing them as a force in English football in the coming years.

With the Premier League season just over a month away, we take a look at the Hornets' full 2015/16 fixtures.
