THE PREDICTION

Watford are clear of the bottom three by a solitary point but the loss to Burnley will ensure they cannot rest on their laurels. They were pretty cautious in that game and ultimately paid the price for it so it would be no surprise to see them approach this match a fraction more adventurously. Southampton are all but safe now but they showed their threat when taking apart Norwich in their first game back. They have since lost to Arsenal but they will present Watford with a test here. With their pace on the counter, Watford are highly unlikely to commit too many men forward and this has all the hallmarks of another low-scoring match so consider under 2.5 goals.
