Roy Hodgson was installed as Watford’s third manager this season on Jan. 25, replacing Claudio Ranieri (14 Premier League games in charge), who replaced Xisco (7 PL games). Unsurprisingly, the Hornets find themselves in grave danger of being relegated back to the EFL Championship yet again, at the first time of asking. The turning point of their season was undoubtedly Ismaila Sarr’s knee injury suffered on Nov. 20. To that point, Sarr was backing up his Player of the Season showing a year ago with five goals in 12 games, and Watford were 15th in the table after beating Manchester United 4-1 at Old Trafford (he scored one of the goals that day). Watford are winless in the 10 Premier League games they’ve played since the injury. Sarr is expected to return to the team on Saturday after effectively undergoing an extended on-field rehab period with Senegal and helping them to Africa Cup of Nations glory (for the first time) last weekend.

Brighton, meanwhile, are finally flying high after fending off reported interest in manager Graham Potter over the summer, now sitting in the top half of the Premier League table amid a six-game unbeaten run (2W-4D-0L). It hasn’t been an easy season for the Seagulls, though, with four wins out of five to begin the campaign, followed swiftly by an 11-game winless skid (0W-8D-3L) that started in mid-September and didn’t end for three and a half months, on Boxing Day when their current run began.
