NOR vs WAT Dream11 Match Prediction: Bottom of the table Watford will be taking on Norwich City who are just a spot above them at Carrow Road in what should be considered as a path to escape the relegation zone.
Both sides have been going through a horrendous run of form and will look for nothing less but a win this Friday. Watford is yet to win a game in the Premier League this season, while Norwich City’s solitary win famously came against Manchester City.
Date- Friday, November 8 | Kick-Off- 1:30 AM (IST) | Venue- Carrow Road
Norwich City Team News
Grant Hanley, Timm Klose and Christoph Zimmermann are surely sidelined due to injuries. Having been beaten 2-0 by Brighton last week, the manager, Daniel Farke is likely to make a few changes for the Canaries. Ibrahim Amadou could return to defensive duties to accompany Lewis, Godfrey and Aarons as the back four. Tettey and Leitner are expected to feature in central midfield, while Cantwell and Buendia in the flanks will look to create chances for Pukki upfront.
Watford Team News
Quite a few players will be missing out for the Hornets due to injury for the upcoming fixture. Craig Cathcart sustained a knock against Chelsea and is unlikely to start. Domingos Quina, Danny Welbeck, Troy Deeney and Ismail Sarr are yet to recover from their respective injuries. Etienne Capoue and Tom Cleverly are both on their way back to the squad and could make it to the bench if not the starting lineup.
Deulofeu and Pereyra are the candidates to start uptop while they feed off Hughes, Chalobah and Doucoure in midfield. Femina and Masina could start as the wing-backs while Kabasele, Dawson and Mariappa could formulate the defence.
Norwich City- Krul; Lewis, Amadou, Godfrey, Aarons; Tettey, Leitner; Cantwell, Stipermann, Buendia; Pukki
Watford- Foster; Kabasele, Dawson, Mariappa; Femenia; Hughes, Chalobah, Doucoure, Masina; Deulofeu, Pereyra
In the last six meetings between the two sides, Norwich City has won four games in contrast to Watford’s one win. One game has also ended on level terms during that period.
Norwich has lost five of their last six games.
Meanwhile, Watford is yet to win a game in the league this season.
Emiliano Buendia has been impressive this season for Norwich City. The Argentinian has four assists in 11 appearances with a pass accuracy of 82%
However, it’s Teemu Pukki who has been the main man in attack for Norwich. Pukki has scored six goals and has two assists under his belt in 11 appearances this season.
Scoring goals has been an issue for Watford ever since Troy Deeney and Danny Welback sustained injuries. But Gerard Deulofeu can use the opportunity to start fresh and lead the attack. The 25-year-old has a goal and an assist this season with a pass accuracy of 84% from 11 appearances.
Norwich City players and fans will be disappointed to not get all three points against an underwhelming Watford unit. Having won against Manchester City in the recent past, Norwich does have enough quality to score a goal or two and bag the vital win.
