Watford vs Norwich prediction: How will Premier League fixture play out tonight?



The Independent employs reporters around the world to bring you truly independent journalism. To support us, please consider a contribution.

Norwich City face make-or-break time in the Premier League on Tuesday night as they travel to Watford.

Another loss for the Canaries will all-but consign them to relegation, as their nearest rival to catch would go 10 points ahead of them with only 12 more points to play for.

It’s must-win, then, for Daniel Farke and his men—but Watford counterpart Nigel Pearson will have the exact same thought.


The Hornets have seen Brighton and West Ham claim wins recently to move away from the drop zone, with it increasingly looking like a battle between Aston Villa and Watford for the final place.

Prediction

The pressure is on for both teams, who have looked increasingly leaky at the back in recent weeks.

Without their home support, though, Watford could find it tough to find another gear – and Norwich might find themselves playing without pressure as it now looks almost certain they’ll go down.
