Analysis of  Watford vs Brighton Tips


With Premier League matches going on in full mode across the country, Hertfordshire County club, Watford would be playing host to East Sussex club, Brighton and Hove Albion. The hosts had a mildly successful season beginning brightly, however experiencing defeats toward the end when incumbent manager Marco Silva was a subject of interest by a rival club, Everton. The club management moved quickly to sort out the issues, though not quickly enough to witness a drop in points. However, incumbent manager, Javi Garcia has managed to steer the club successfully away from the drop zone, with the club ending the season in 14th position, with 41 points.

The Hornets have added needed reinforcements to the club recruiting defender Marc Navarro from Espanyol, former Everton winger Gerard Deulofeu from Barcelona, former Manchester United goalkeeper Ben Foster from West Brom, Ken Osema from Swedish football club Ostersunds, Adam Masina from Bologna and Domingos Quina (West Ham). The manager is set to begin his first full season in charge.

The visitors, however, would be celebrating their second season in the Premier League, having gained promotion into the Elite League for the first time in 118 years. The Seagulls had a relatively successful run, as newcomers, scoring a total of 34 goals, conceding 54, and accumulating 40 points – the minimum number of points to guarantee safety in top flight, 5 points above the relegation zone. However, regardless of how the outcome of the season would be viewed, The Seagulls – players and fans alike would view the past season as an immense success having reached the quarter-final of the FA Cup, and secured Premiership status in a glorious way through a 1 –  0 victory over Manchester United.

A plethora of players have been ushered through the gates of the club. Some of the new recruits include like Alireza Jahanbakhsh from AZ Alkmaar, Bernardo from German club RB Leipzig, David Button, Dan Burn from Wigan and Martin Montoya from Valencia.

The visitors should be able to navigate their way through the match; however, we would be going for the hosts to establish a marker for the start of the season.
