Newcastle are already mathematically safe from relegation this summer, though a win could prove huge for Watford's survival hopes here. Read my match preview, for the best betting tips and correct score predictions ahead of this upcoming fixture.

Watford vs Newcastle United Betting Tips

If you haven't had the pleasure of watching Danny Welbeck's wonderful winner against Norwich yet, please go do it now. It was the forward's first Premier League goal since August 2018 and an audacious strike which both highlighted Norwich's poor defending and his technical ability.

Since joining on a free transfer from Arsenal last summer, the England international has only made five top-flight starts for Watford. After that matchwinning display, he's likely to be rewarded with another against Newcastle – who have problems of their own.

Their influential centre-back Jamaal Lascelles (ankle) is listed as doubtful for this fixture, as is chief creator Allan Saint-Maximin. The latter has been in impressive form since play resumed last month, though it's unclear whether the Frenchman will feature.

Whether he does or not, head coach Steve Bruce will still feel inclined to make wholesale changes after they were thrashed 5-0 by Manchester City on Wednesday. Wingers Matt Richie and Valentino Lazaro were among the Geordies‘ best players in Eastlands, though Pep Guardiola's men overwhelmed them.

It'll be interesting to see whether Dwight Gayle – notorious for his inconsistency – starts ahead of Joelinton in attack. Christian Atsu and Yoshinori Muto also made late cameo appearances against City, while £21m signing Miguel Almiron was left unused.

Watford vs Newcastle United Correct Score Predictions

Newcastle shook off their dismal start to the campaign and have importantly shown their ability to scrap with everyone.

However, Watford need all three points while Steve Bruce's men are essentially playing to achieve a credible league finish. It's tricky to predict, though I'm going for a narrow home win as Nigel Pearson's men will be in a buoyant mood after their midweek victory.
