Our prediction for this FA Cup match:
After holding Tottenham Hotspur to a 1-1 draw in their last league match, Southampton will be aiming to give fans yet another reason for celebration when they host Watford at their St. Mary’s Stadium in the FA Cup round 4. Southampton have been playing below expectations in the 2017/2018 Premier League campaign and they are sitting in the relegation zone ahead of Sunday’s football game against Watford. The Saints are desperate to return to winning ways and we predict that they are going to fight tooth and nail against the Hornets. Watford outplayed Bristol City (3-0) in the opening match of their FA Cup campaign, but Southampton are likely to pose a much bigger threat for the Vicarage Road Stadium than their previous rivals. The hosts want this win more than the visitors and we believe that there is a certain value in betting on Manuel Pellegrino’s men.
Highlighted Player (Fraser Forster):
Originating from Hexham, Fraser Forster is an English goalkeeper who spent his early career at Newcastle United, but surprisingly did not make a single Premier League appearance during the seven years at St James’ Park. Forster first showed promise during the loan spell with Norwich City, but it was the stint with Celtic that earned him wide acclaim and saw him become an England international. After spending four years at Parkhead, the highly rated goalkeeper returned to the Premier League to sign for Southampton and he has since acted as club’s number one goalkeeper. Forster has been a member of the England national team since 2013, usually acting as a back up for Joe Hart, making a handful of appearances in international friendlies. Forster was in the Three Lions squad at the 2014 World Cup and Euro 2016, and with quite a few of good years in front of him, the towering goalkeeper should get the opportunity to win few more England caps before he retires from football.
