Watford face off against Norwich City in a battle of two relegation threatened sides. The Hornets face a crucial game to stray away from the relegation zone.

Nigel Pearson’s side have only picked up one point from the fixtures after the restart. They are just one point above the relegation zone losing three successive games against Burnley, Southampton and Chelsea.

Norwich may have missed out on the chance of staying up in the English top tier next season. They have lost each and every match since the restart and it might be the last straw for the club.
