Our prediction for this Premier League match:
Saturday’s football match at Vicarage Road pits together Watford and Huddersfield Town. The Hornets made a flying start to the season, but they have been struggling in the Premier League of late. Watford are on a four-game winless run in the national championship ahead of the visit of Huddersfield and, no doubt, they are eager to get back on course. It has to be noted, though, that they will be without suspended midfielder Tom Cleverley against the newcomers. The Terriers experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 3-1 loss to Chelsea on Tuesday evening and seeing that they are not regarded as good travelers, we predict David Wagner’s men will return home empty-handed. Watford conceded two late goals in a 2-1 loss to Crystal Palace in midweek, but we are tempted to put our money on Marco Silva’s troops this time out.
Highlighted Player (Troy Deeney):
Troy Deeney started his professional career in 2006 at Walsall. The prolific attacker scored 27 goals in 123 appearances for the club and in 2010 he went on to sign a contract with Watford. He joined the Hornets for a fee of £500,000 and it has to be noted that he scored only two goals for the team in the 2010/2011 Championship campaign. However, as time went by he was raising his form and in the 2014/2015 the English attacker scored 21 goals for Watford and helped the team secure promotion to the Premier League. Troy Deeney was playing an important role in Quique Sanchez Flores’ team on their return to the English top flight and he bagged no fewer than 13 goals in the 2015/2016 season. Deeney was born in Birmingham, West Midlands, on 29 June, 1988 and he has two children, Myles, a son, and a daughter Amelia. His brother Ellis is a football player as well, but he plays as a midfielder. The striker has also spent some time in prison, but has since seriously improved his behaviour.
Highlighted Team (Huddersfield Town):
Back in 1926 Huddersfield Town became the first English club to win three straight domestic trophies. Since 1908 the Terriers were playing at Leeds Road, but in 1994 John Smith’s Stadium became home of Huddersfield Town. The club play in the English second tier (Championship) and the colour of the their home kit is blue and white (stripes).
Huddersfield Town were founded in 1910 and just three years later they entered the Football League. In 1926 the Terriers won their last domestic trophy, but they did well finishing runners up in the FA Cup 1920. The club’s biggest rivals are Leeds United and it has to be noted that Huddersfield Town have better head-to-head record of the two teams.
Bradford City are considered Huddersfield’s local rivals as well, but there are small rivalries with Barnsley, Halifax Town, Manchester City and Oldham Athletic. The club’s chairman is Dean Hoyle.
