16th-placed Watford host Southampton, as Nigel Pearson's side aim to steer increasingly clear of the relegation places this weekend. Both sides enter this fixture after midweek defeats, so will naturally be eyeing a return to winning ways.

Southampton can achieve the 40-point mark by winning, while Watford hope for further distance between themselves and their relegation rivals. Read my match preview, for the best betting tips and correct score predictions ahead of this upcoming fixture.

Watford vs Southampton Betting Tips

Nine points separate the two sides and Watford will be eager to bridge the gap with an improved display here. They were undone by a moment of magic at Turf Moor on Thursday – courtesy of Dwight McNeil and Jay Rodriguez.

McNeil's low cross was met by an alert Rodriguez, who steered his header beyond Ben Foster into the bottom corner. It was the 30-year-old's ninth goal (all competitions) this term and first from open play since mid-January against Manchester United.

You could only feel sorry for Craig Dawson in central defence for the Hornets. He was their best player: recording five clearances, including one off-the-line, alongside one tackle, interception and block over the 90 minutes.

It's fair to imagine the former West Brom centre-back will be under similar duress against a motivated Southampton. Despite some encouraging flashes, the Saints were largely disappointing in their 2-0 home defeat by Arsenal and will look to respond.

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and captain James Ward-Prowse are key, aiming to supply top scorer Danny Ings with quality service through midfield. Ings has 16 Premier League goals this term and after a Man of the Match display against Norwich on June 19, will aim to add to his tally here.

Watford vs Southampton Correct Score Predictions

Three of their last five H2H meetings have ended in draws, which typifies this fixture – a tough one to predict. Both possess quality and are capable of winning convincingly on their day, though equally can struggle if they start slowly.

Southampton are the better side, but Watford need the points more. I'm going for a nervy draw here.
