Our prediction for this Premier League match:
After making their worst Premier League start in the history of the club, Leeds United will be looking to give fans some cheer when they host Watford at their Elland Road on Matchday 7. The Whites suffered a 2-1 loss to West Ham United, but it has to be noted that the post prevented Raphinha from doubling Leeds’ lead in the 35th minute. The Brazil international will be the man to watch in the home team, while important attacker Patrick Bamford remains in the recovery room.
As a result, Rodrigo will continue to lead the line for the hosts. The Hornets, on the other hand, are on a quest to secure the Premier League survival, but that is easier said than done. Watford played out a 1-1 draw with Newcastle United at the weekend, but seeing that the Whites want this win more than the Hornets, home win should be considered. The Hornets boss Xisco should have a full squad to choose from.
