How many points can Watford expect from their next five games?

Watford team huddle before the game

We predict the results of Watford's next five Premier League games.

Leicester City (H)

Watford welcome the Premier League champions to Vicarage Road following the international break.

Claudio Ranieri’s men currently sit 14th in the table after an underwhelming start to their league campaign. The Foxes are yet to record an away victory having lost four out of five - conceding 14 goals in the process.

It would not be a surprise to see Troy Deeney score his 100th Watford goal against the team that courted him in the summer.

Prediction: Win

Stoke City (H)

Mark Hughes’ Stoke side had a slow start to the season but they are now unbeaten in six. With a home fixture against Bournemouth after the break, that run may be extended to seven by the time they arrive in Hertfordshire.

The Potters possess a well-balanced squad and have picked up impressive away results against Manchester United, Hull City and West Ham United. They should give the Hornets a testing afternoon.

Prediction: Draw

West Bromwich Albion (A)

The Hawthorns has not been much of a fortress for West Brom in recent times, as they have only won once at home game in nine attempts.

In this fixture last season, the Baggies should have walked out comfortable winners but the penalty saving heroics of Heurelho Gomes ensured the Hornets took all three points.

West Brom are set up in a similar fashion to Burnley, who proved to be a tough test for Walter Mazzarri’s side. Watford will have to avoid another Turf Moor performance if they want to leave the West Midlands with a result.

Prediction: Draw

Everton (H)

The Toffee’s travel to Watford in the middle of a packed nine day schedule, which also sees them face Manchester United and Arsenal.

Both sides may be forced to rotate their starting elevens during this tough run, but Watford will benefit from having the home advantage.

Prediction: Draw

Manchester City (H)

Four days later, Watford travel to the Etihad Stadium for a daunting fixture against Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City.

The visit of Watford is City’s fourth game in eleven days, with another huge test against Arsenal four days later. The packed fixture list should work in the Hornets favour.

The Citizens are yet to lose at home this season but the recent displays of Southampton and Middlesbrough at the Etihad should give the Hornet's some cause for optimism.

Prediction: Lose
