Watford have the chance to follow up last weekend's fine win over the champions Leicester with another home victory when they welcome Stoke to Vicarage Road on Sunday lunchtime.

After a poor start, Stoke looked to be getting back on track but suffered a setback with a home defeat to Bournemouth last time out. Bojan missed a penalty in that game; the Potters flair players such as the Spaniard will be key if Mark Hughes' side are to climb the table.

The Key Battle - Troy Deeney vs Ryan Shawcross

Deeney's strike partnership with Odion Ighalo has not been as prolific as this time last year, but the forward still has three goals to his name so far and remains the focal point of the Hornets attack.

His opponent is lucky to be featuring in this game at all having avoided what looked like a certain red card for a last-ditch foul on Callum Wilson last weekend, but Hughes will be grateful that his defensive talisman is available.

Stoke ran out 2-1 winners when these two sides met at Vicarage Road in March, with Jon Walters and Joselu on the scoresheet for the visitors.
