Predicted Watford line-up to face Huddersfield Town in the Premier League

Watford picked up an important victory against newcomers Wolverhampton Wanderers last time out and will be aiming to continue their form against Huddersfield Town this weekend.

Javi Gracia’s men slightly faded away after making a great start to their season.

But the Hornets can go for another win against a poor Terriers side who are struggling to get out of the relegation zone.

Team News

Daryl Janmaat and Troy Deeney are still out injured. Apart from long-term absentees, Watford have no immediate concerns at the moment. Javi Gracia can field an offensive side and take the game to Huddersfield Town.

Probable Watford XI

Manager: Javi Gracia

Formation: 4-2-2-2

Ben Foster (GK)

Foster has been superb in goal this season. He will certainly keep his place for this game.

Kiko Femenia

Kiko Femenia (RB)

With Janmaat out injured, Femenia has done a good job in his absence. The defender should continue at right-back.

Adrien Mariappa (CB)

Mariappa has taken a place in centeal defence after a number of defensive worries in the squad. He will start for this one as well.

Craig Cathcart (CB)

Cathcart has been very consistent for the Hornets since the start of the season. He should partner Mariappa at the back.

Jose Holebas (LB)

The Greek defender has been a revelation for the Hornets this season. His set-pieces have been vital too.

Abdoulaye Doucoure (RCM)

The midfielder is known for his ability to drive the ball and create chances in the final third. A sure starter.

Etienne Capoue (LCM)

Capoue is the perfect partner for Doucoure in the middle of the park. He will start this game for sure.

Will Hughes (RAM)

Hughes has endured a slight dip in his form and needs to return to his best soon.

Roberto Pereyra

Roberto Pereyra (LAM)

The Argentinian finally returned to his goal-scoring ways last game and will be aiming for another one against the Terriers.

Gerard Deulofeu (ST)

Injury to Deeney has seen the former Barcelona man come in and do a good job. He will keep his place for this game.

Andre Gray (ST)

Gray was a second-half substitute in the last game but should return to the line-up for this one.
