Both Newcastle and Watford are languishing in the lower half of the English Premier League table this season so they are determined to win their clash on Saturday.

Newcastle are in 19th place with 11 points from 19 games while Watford are in 17th spot with 13 points from 18 games.

The Magpies failed to win in their last five games in all competitions. Eddie Howe's side are coming off a 1-0 defeat against Cambridge United in the third round of the FA Cup on Saturday.

Isaac Hayden, Callum Wilson, Federico Fernandez and Jamal Lewis will not feature in this game due to injuries while Javier Manquillo is suspended.

Watford have lost their last seven games in all competitions. Like Newcastle, the Hornets' FA Cup campaign ended on Saturday after they tasted a 4-1 defeat to Leicester City. João Pedro's first-half goal prevented a shut-out loss for the Hornets.

Watford have a long injury list that includes Nicolas Nkoulou, Peter Etebo, Ismaila Sarr, Christian Kabasele, Ben Foster and Kwadwo Baah. Watford boss Claudio Ranieri will also not be able to use Imran Louza, Adam Masina and William Troost-Ekong, who are all playing in the Africa Cup of Nations.

The first confrontation between Newcastle and Watford this season resulted in a 1-1 draw. Sean Longstaff gave the Magpies an advantage in the first half before Sarr responded with a goal for the Hornets in the second half.

Newcastle United vs Watford Tips

1. Match Result - Newcastle to win

Newcastle have won only one match this season but we are backing them to beat a slumping Watford side.

2. Total Goals - Under 2.5

Both teams are struggling so expect a low-scoring match here.

3. Both Teams To Score - No

We don’t expect the two teams to be on target.

4. Anytime Goalscorer - Dwight Gayle

The Newcastle striker is the top bet in this market.

5. Correct Score - Newcastle 1-0

One goal should be enough for the Magpies to take this victory.


We expect Newcastle to get their second win this season.
