Norwich City have been written off by most already this season but if they are to have any hope of survival then a win away at Watford is a must.

Both teams have been relegation favourites since the first kick of the season and the hope that many Hornets would have been given with the appointment of Nigel Pearson and some improved results will have slowly ebbed away since the season re-start with losses to Burnley, Southampton and a 3-0 defeat to Chelsea last time out.

For Norwich, it doesn’t look much better with Daniel Farke’s men not having picked up a point since that 1-0 victory over Leicester City back in February.

As it stands, Watford go into the game one point above the relegation zone in 17th, whereas Norwich are seven points adrift of safety.

Form favours the hosts with Pearson’s team not having lost at home since December whilst Norwich have only managed a single goal away from Carrow Road since the calendar pages flipped over to 2020.

Watford have no fresh selection worries although are still missing Deulofeu, Issac Success and Daryl Janmaat… Danny Wellheck is also unlikely to be risked.

For Norwich, they are expected to welcome back both Todd Cantwell and Teemu Pukki to the starting 11 who will both have one eye on a potential move for next season having impressed in a struggling side this term. They still have problems in defence however with Grant Hanley and Sam Byram are still out although Christophe Zimmermann IS back in training – but unlikely to feature.

Kick-off at Vicarage Road at 6pm.
