Watford take on Newcastle United in the Premier League this weekend and they will be looking to build on their win from last week.

The two sides meet on the 25th of September at 15:00 pm BST.

A 3-1 win over Norwich City last week will have given Watford some much-needed confidence and they will fancy their chances of picking up all three points against a vulnerable Newcastle side.

Meanwhile, Newcastle are yet to win a single game in the Premier League this season and Steve Bruce will be under pressure to turn things around.

Watford vs Newcastle prediction

Watford have not lost any of their last four meetings against Newcastle and they will look to pick up a home win here.

Newcastle have started the season in dreadful form and they are without several key players here. The magpies have also conceded 13 goals in five Premier League matches so far and they could be in for another torrid afternoon here.

Watford will be confident of picking up their third win of the Premier League campaign against a vulnerable Newcastle outfit.

Prediction: Watford to win.
