Competition: EFL Championship
Date: 1st August 2022
Kickoff: 19:00 UTC
Venue: Vicarage Road

The only two teams who are yet to open their Championship account play on Monday night as Sheffield United visit Vicarage Road to play the Hornets from Watford. This will be a huge game as Watford come with Premier League experience from the previous year, whereas Sheffield United just missed on a Premiership berth due to some poor performances in the last weeks of 2021-22. Nevertheless, this will either be Watford showing off their strength after arriving from the English top flight or Sheffield United making a statement of intent to again re-book their Premier League spot. For supporters and fans alike, this should be an excellent game to watch.

Watford vs Sheffield United Betting Tips

Watford caused a lot of trouble to even the Premier League big guns last season as they boasted their efficient attack, specifically with Joao Pedro and Emmanuel Dennis leading the offence. Considering that Pedro and Dennis will again be featuring as the Hornets' main force and that Watford are unbeaten against United in the last 5 meetings, this tie should go in favour of the home side on Monday night. As mentioned before, these two sides could be among the top-four sides of the Championship this season, and so the game is expected to be quite tight - an indication of under 2.5 goals to be expected.

  • Best Tip: Home / Under 2.5

Emmanuel Dennis returns to the Championship as one of the Premier League favourites from last season. Not only did the Nigerian torment the top four defences last season, but he was also very impressive in his partnership with Joao Pedro. On the defensive front, centre-back Christian Kabasele brings the much-needed composure and calm to a back-line which is still adapting to the newly instilled three-man defence. Kabasele's communication, Dennis' finishing and Pedro's creativity will be the three things to watch on Monday.

After the departure of Dean Henderson to Manchester United (and now Nottingham Forest), Wes Foderingham has taken up the reigns of the club's defensive unit. But the stopper is far behind Henderson in terms of ability and thus, the club has suffered a bit in maintaining clean sheets. This season will be a make-or-break situation for Foderingham. U-17 World Cup winner Rhian Brewster should finally see himself settling as the club's main striker after an on-off appearance schedule in the last two years. Brewster and Foderingham will be our two players to watch.
