Newcastle will host Watford at St James’ Park in match week 22 of the English Premier League 2021-22 season.
Both the teams are fighting to avoid relegation. Watford finished second in the previous season of the EFL Championship and was promoted to the top flight again. However, it has managed to collect just 13 points in 18 games so far and has a slender 2 point lead over 18th placed Burnley. After his appointment as the head coach, Claudio Ranieri has failed to turn the fortunes of Watford and has six consecutive games coming into this match.
Newcastle is playing its fifth consecutive Premier League but is in real danger of getting relegated down by the end of the season. The team is sitting in 19th place and has a one-point lead over Norwich City. A win in this game will however get it out of the danger zone, at least for the time being. Ever since his appointment as the head coach, Eddie Howe has managed to win just one game and has lost 4 out of his last 5 games.
Match prediction and betting tips for Newcastle United vs Watford Premier League 2021-22. The match is going to be played at St. James’ Park, Newcastle upon Tyne, on the 15th of January 2022.
Over the last weekend, Newcastle suffered a shock exit from the FA Cup after a humiliating loss against Cambridge. Coach Howe is now struggling to keep his job after failing to get the desired results and will be going all-in for this game. The team has seen its last 2 Premier League games getting postponed due to COVID outbreaks, and the players have had an ample amount of rest. However, the team is likely to miss out on Fredrico Fernandez, Callum Wilson, Isaac Hayden, and Jamal Lewis due to various injuries.
As for Watford, Ismaila Saar is out with an injury and may leave to join AFCON if and when he recovers. Kwadwo Baah and Peter Etebo are injured too, and unlikely to feature in this game.
We expect both the teams to score in this game, but playing at home may just provide the Magpies with an upper hand.
Bet on a Newcastle United win.
Both teams have scored in four out of the previous five matches that they have played against each other. As two of the teams with the weakest defense this season, keeping a clean sheet has been quite difficult. We can see both of them scoring in this game and helping us win this bet quite easily!
