Aston Villa vs Watford Preview

Aston Villa are in 12th place in the Premier League standings and have been fairly inconsistent so far this season. The hosts have made excellent signings under Steven Gerrard in the transfer window and will want to bounce back from their shock 1-0 defeat at the hands of Newcastle United.

Watford, on the other hand, are currently in 19th place in the league table at the moment and face a dire relegation battle in the coming months. The Hornets slumped to a damaging 2-0 defeat against Brighton & Hove Albion in their previous league game and will need to take it up a notch this weekend.
