Big season ahead

Watford will feature in the Premier League in the upcoming 2015-16 campaign, having gained automatic promotion from the Championship at the end of last season.

The Hornets will the start the season as one of the favourites to go down to the second tier of English football, but they have made some good signings in an effort to stay up.
