Watford Vicarage Road

Here is how we predict Watford and West Bromwich Albion will line up this weekend.

To be played on Saturday 15th August 2015 at 14:00. Venue: Vicarage Road, Watford

Odds: Watford 13/10, Draw 23/10, West Brom 2/1

Watford welcome West Bromwich Albion to Vicarage Road on Saturday as the Hornets look for their first victory of the season a week on from their 2-2 draw against Everton.

West Brom fared worse against Manchester City, losing 3-0 with the Blues bossing the match, and Baggies boss Tony Pulis will want to put things right this weekend.

In early team news, Watford are without suspended goalkeeper Giedrius Arlauskis while defender Joel Ekstrand is out with a knee injury and Miguel Britos is also serving a suspension until 23 August.

Almen Abdi has only a 25 per cent chance of recovering from a knee injury and Steven Berghuis is unlikely to feature due to a leg problem.

As for West Brom, they are without the injured Ben Foster but defender Gareth McAuley could recover from a calf injury.

New signing Salomon Rondon – who could take The Hawthorns by storm this season – is lacking match fitness and is rated at 50/50 to feature this weekend.
