Watford is ranked at 5th place with 34 points and comes not in their best shape after two wins a draw and two losses over the last five matches. The recent loss costed the job to manager Ivic who was sacked and now they will want to impress under the new coach. I expect a more offensive football by Watford for the rest of the season.
They have scored 23 goals so far but for me, they have more than enough quality in their team to do better than this. Joao Pedro is listed as doubtful but still with Sarr-Gray and Deeney their attack has enough power. At home, they have been one of the best teams so far with just a loss, having scored ten goals over the last five matches averaging two goals per game.
Norwich is ranked at the first spot with 43 points and has been pretty much dominating their rivals in the last games, winning five in a row. In fact, they managed to win eight of the last ten games while drawing one and losing the other. Now they sit five points ahead of the second spot.
With 29 goals scored so far, Norwich is showing a pretty solid offensive side and in the last five duels, they have scored a total of ten goals averaging two goals per game, scoring at least a goal in each of them. They have been scoring with consistency for the last ten encounters. Pukki is having another great season having already netted ten goals.
In conclusion, I think this match can have over 2.5 goals. Watford will play their debut with the new coach and considering his style of play I expect them to score at least a goal against a Norwich team that leaves spaces behind. Norwich is on a great run and will seek to end the year in style. On the road they scored in nine out of ten games played so far.
