Can Bournemouth beat Watford in relegation battle?
It has been eight defeats for Bournemouth in their last ten league games played (W1 D1). They suffered a 4-0 loss at West ham in their first game of the new calendar year. Boss Eddie Howe needs a big change of momentum, but they have a big injury list working against them as well. There has been just one goal scored by Bournemouth in their last four league games. They have only scored in two of their last seven. At home this season the Cherries have earned a W2 D4 L4 record and they are without a win in four at the Vitality.
The Cherries have scored one point only in their last four home league fixtures. They have averaged a goal per game there throughout the season, earning just the two home clean sheets. Bournemouth are without a clean sheet in any of their last four top-flight games, however, home and away. Only bottom side Norwich have earned fewer home points than Bournemouth this season in the top flight. They are struggling but three points here would certainly ease a lot of pressure in creating distance between themselves and the Hornets

Can Watford continue their strong form?
It just goes to show what a change of manager can do. Suddenly Watford have gone from relegation certainties to potentially getting out of the bottom three on the weekend. They have taken a superb W3 D1 record and things have really taken such a positive turn since Nigel Pearson was installed as boss. They do still need to pick their away form up, however, which is only at W1 D3 L6 this season. In their last road game, they played out a draw at Sheffield United. The big change for the Hornets has been their scoring output.
There has been an average of two per game netted by them in their last four league games. In their previous twelve games, they only managed five in total. Gerard Deulofeu has scored the opening goal in two of Watford’s last three league games. There has only been the six away goals scored by Watford in this season’s campaign, with just the one clean sheet from them too. The Hornets average two goals per away game against them. All but three of their 10 league losses this season have been by a margin of at least two goals.
