Watford vs Aston Villa Team News

The latest reports suggest that star forward Odion Ighalo will be in the side despite the death of his father, but the season is over for key midfielder Etienne Capoue, who suffered a serious knee injury in the FA Cup semi-final. There are no other selection worries for Quique Sanchez Flores at the moment.

Injured: Etienne Capoue (33/0)

Suspended: None

Micah Richards faces a fitness test as he battles a knee injury, and he could be replaced by Ciaran Clark, who returns from an ankle problem. Gabriel Agbonlahor has seen his club suspension cancelled, but everything suggests he will not be in the squad for the Watford game.

Injured: Jordan Amavi (10/0)

Doubtful: Micah Richards (23/1)

Quick Facts

  • Under 2.5 goals were scored in five of Watford’s last six home games
  • Hornets failed to keep a clean sheet in last three home matches
  • Aston Villa are on a ten-game losing run in the Premier League
  • The Villans recorded their last win in the league on 6 February
  • The two teams played out a goalless draw in their last meeting in Watford

Watford vs Aston Villa Prediction

Watford have already secured the Premier League survival, meaning that they have little to play for in Saturday’s game against Aston Villa. The Hornets, though, want to give fans some cheer following back-to-back defeats to the likes of West Ham United and Crystal Palace and considering that the Villans are running down a blind alley at the moment, there is every chance Quique Sanchez Flores’ troops will pick up all three points from the Vicarage Road Stadium clash.
