Watford vs Leeds: The Hornets would make the Premier League relegation battle incredibly interesting if they can beat Jesse Marsch’s side at Vicarage Road on Saturday (Watch live at 10 am ET, on Peacock Premium).
Watford (22 points – 19th place) are within striking distance of safety, thanks to Everton’s prolonged swoon, heading into their first of three remaining must-win games against other sides currently in the bottom-five (they’ll probably still need another three or four points to make a run at 17th). It’s been virtually impossible for Watford to piece together any momentum this season, as they have only managed to avoid defeat in back-to-back games once in 30 games this season (Sept. 18 and 25).
As for Leeds, fortunes have already begun to turn around (2W-1D-0L in their last three Premier League games) since Marsh replaced Marcelo Bielsa last month. Not only are they defending better (1.33 goals conceded per game, compared to 2.29 the first 28 games this season), but they’re putting the ball in the back of the net at a much higher rate as well (2 goals scored per game, compared to 1.04 the first 28 games).
