    Norwich to make Watford wait for first league win in 2019/20

    Norwich City host Watford as Matchday 12 of the Premier League kicks off on Friday night at Carrow Road.

    Watford sit rock bottom of the table and are still the only team without a win to their name this season, while Norwich are two points ahead in 19th.

    Both sides will be desperate to claim the victory on Friday, as this match already looks like a vital six-pointer and the bottom of the Premier League.

    Three draws in their last five matches suggest that the Hornets are moving in the right direction. However, the team must start turning draws into wins in order to stay in the top flight.

    Watford were beaten 2-1 by high-flying Chelsea in the previous round. A late Gerard Deulofeu penalty wasn’t enough to spark a comeback, and the final scoreline flattered the home side.

    Hard-fought draws with Sheffield United, Tottenham Hotspur and Bournemouth will have shown manager Quique Sanchez Flores that his team are close to finding their first league win of the 2019/20 campaign.

    On the other hand, Norwich have two league wins to their name this season. A 3-1 victory over Newcastle was followed up by a famous 3-2 win against Manchester City, but the Canaries’ form has gone downhill since then.

    Norwich have lost five of their six league games since beating City, while only Southampton have a poorer defensive record in the division.

    The Canaries started the season in great goal-scoring form but have struggled to find the back of the net in recent games.

    Teemu Pukki scored six goals in Norwich’s first five Premier League games, but the Finish striker is now without a goal in his last six top-flight appearances.

    If Norwich’s recent goal-scoring record is poor, then Watford’s must be classed as appalling. The Hornets are the divisions lowest-scoring side, with just six goals in 11 league games this term.

    Norwich have won four of their last five meetings with Watford in all competitions. Remarkably, they have scored three of more goals in each of those four wins.

    This trend looks set to continue on Friday, and Norwich are likely to inflict another high-scoring victory on Watford.

    Forebet predicts that Norwich will claim all three points while scoring over 2.5 goals. Watford’s wait for a first league win this season looks set to go on.
