Head-to-Head


Watford have an 11-8 advantage against Leeds in 25 meetings with six draws.

Leeds Form


Leeds were denied their first league win of the season as they fell to a 2-1 defeat against West Ham on Saturday. The result leaves Marcelo Bielsa's side in the relegation zone on goal difference. 

Raphinha opened the scoring and Leeds had plenty of chances with 15 shots and 1.27 expected goals. They then conceded two late goals to remain winless in their first six Premier League matches.

Leeds Team News


Forwards Diego Llorente and Raphinha and midfielder Pascal Struijk are back in contention.

Striker Patrick Bamford is unlikely to feature with an ankle injury.

Midfielder Adam Forshaw and defensive duo Robin Koch and Luke Ayling remain sidelined.  

Watford Form


Watford couldn’t build on their recent 3-1 win against Norwich and they are winless in their last two. A shock 3-1 loss against Stoke in the EFL Cup came before a 1-1 draw against Newcastle last time out. 

Xisco Munoz’s side were 1-0 down for most of the match, despite having 15 shots and 53% possession. Ismaïla Sarr then netted the equaliser with 20 minutes remaining. 

Watford Team News


Goalkeeper Daniel Bachmann and midfielder Tom Cleverley will return to the squad. 

Midfielder Peter Etebo remains out long-term through injury.

Verdict

Leeds and Watford can’t seem to break their spell of poor form. The Whites will miss several key players and I am tipping a 1-1 draw.
