English Premier League predictions for today

Norwich City welcomes Watford in a first game from the 12th round of the Premier League. This is a good moment to have some discussion about this match during our English Premier League predictions for today.

This is a derby of the bottom, because we will have the 19th and the 20th teams in the standings facing each other. At this moment Norwich City have just 7 points won so far, while Watford are at last place with just 5 points. They are the only Premier League without a win so far in the league – the have a pretty bad record of 5 draws and 6 losses so far.

After doing three consecutive draws in the Premier League, in the previous round the Hornets hosted Chelsea at the Vicarage Road and suffered a 1-2 loss. Gerard Deulofeu scored for Watford from a penalty kick 10 minutes before the end, but before this Tammy Abraham and Christian Pulisic have put the ball behind Ben Foster’s back.

Clearly it’s a very hard moment for Watford. The club’s decision to fire Javi Gracia and replace him with Quique Sanchez Flores didn’t lead to anything. The team still can’t win a game. The Hornets need something really big right now in order to ressurect their hopes of survival. Maybe recording a first win is a good beginning?

Meanwhile Norwich City are the second weakest team in the league at the moment, being 4 points behind the 17th Everton and the safe zone. So far the club’s board is sticking with the manager Daniel Farke, but it’s not clear for how long. If the Canaries don’t start doing better, maybe a change would come.

During our English Premier League predictions we believe that both Norwich City and Watford will be very motivated to record a win on Friday. They really need the points at the moment, because it’s a matter of survival.
