Watford are back in the Premier League this season after winning promotion last term from the Championship. They’ll be hoping to beat the drop this time around and establish themselves back in the top flight for the coming years ahead.
We’ve taken a look at all you need to know about Watford – from their upcoming league fixtures, to the latest football betting odds for the club this term.
When is the next Watford Premier League game?
Watford got back to winning ways in the Premier League last weekend with a 3-1 win over Norwich City.
History suggests they could make it back-to-back victories when they welcome Newcastle to Vicarage Road. The Hornets have won five of their 12 Premier League meetings with the Magpies.
What are the odds that Watford win the next game?
It’s 13/10 to on a Watford win. They have won 13 of their last 15 home league games, and they haven’t lost consecutive matches at home since November 2019.
Ismaila Sarr grabbed a brace in the win over Norwich City, it’s 7/1 on him opening the scoring against Newcastle.
What’s the latest Watford transfer and injury news?
Goalkeeper Daniel Bachmann remains a doubt with a knee injury, he will be assessed ahead of Saturday.
Kiko Femenia has returned to training after being substituted with a muscle injury at Norwich, while Joao Pedro could feature for the first time since May.
Who are Watford’s key players?
If Watford can keep hold of him, Ismaila Sarr should have a key role to play for the club this term. While his first season in the Premier League was inconsistent, last year in the Championship he scored 13 and assisted four in the league, winning Watford’s Player of the Season award. New signing Danny Rose could also prove to be an important player and will have a point to prove having struggled for first-team football at Spurs.

What are the Watford’s odds to be relegated from the Premier League?
A top half finish would represent a hugely successful season for Watford this term, which is available at odds of 8/1. More realistic for the club would be to beat relegation, which in itself could be a challenge given they’re third favourites after Norwich and Crystal Palace to face the drop at 11/8. It’s not surprising then that Watford also have odds of 5/1 to be bottom of the table at Christmas.
Who is the manager of Watford?
Xisco Muñoz will be overseeing Watford this season after succeeding Vladimir Ivić’s short reign at the club in December 2020. Having spent time playing for a number of Spanish football clubs, Xisco has coaching experience from his time at Dinamo Tbilisi. Xisco has a history of improving the clubs he works with, helping to recover the league crown for Dinamo Tbilisi by winning the title with them in 2020, before then steering Watford to Premier League promotion in 2021.
Where is Watford’s stadium?
Watford’s stadium is at Vicarage Road, where the team have played since 1922, though it has only been owned by the club after its fan-funded “Let’s buy back the Vic” campaign in 2004. The 21,577 capacity stadium names two of its stands after former owner Elton John and manager Graham Taylor.
