Preview Watford Premier League, Sep 11, 2021
Preview Watford suffered a disappointing 1-0 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur on the third day of the English Premier League at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. After a few clear-cut chances at both ends, Spurs eventually broke the deadlock three minutes before half-time. Heung-min Son (42') scored the game's only goal after seeing his curling long-range free-kick end up in the back of the net. The defeat leaves the newly-promoted side in 12th place on the Premier League table with 3 points after 1W, 0D & 2L, which translates into a form that reads: WLL. The search for their second Premier League win - since their return to top-flight football - will continue on Matchday 4. Manager Xisco will welcome Wolves to Vicarage Road with the aim of picking up three points in what he calls a new era following the departure of former captain, Troy Deeney, on the eve of deadline-day. I tell you, I have big respect for Troy, he said in the presser. It is a new era and he is a very good person, he added. The 41-year-old is expected to emerge alongside Watford with a 4—3—3 formation. The trio consisting of Emmanuel Dennis, Joshua King, and Ismaïla Sarr could be involved in the attack. Xisco Muñoz will have a fully fit squad available ahead of this fixture against Wolves.
Preview Wolverhampton Wanderers Premier League, Sep 11, 2021
Preview Wolves remain at the bottom end of the Premier League table in 18th place with no point after three games: 0W, 0D & 3L. They return after the international break, having been defeated 1-0 on home soil by Manchester United. Mason Greenwood (80') scored the only goal of the game after some nifty footwork presented him with the opportunity to take the shot. The pressure is gradually mounting on the new boss, Bruno Lage, who is yet to pick up a point this season. His team will try to do that on Saturday. Wolves, - most especially Adama Traore must be clinical in front of goal. The bulky forward has failed to convert several clear-cut chances for Wolves since the opening day defeat to Leicester City. Despite his unimpressive numbers in the final-third, Traore continues to attract interest from Tottenham, with the media reporting a possible reunion with former coach Nuno in the mid-season transfer window. Wolves will return to Premier League action behind three consecutive defeats: LLL, but a point against Watford looks like a possible outcome, considering their spirited efforts over the course of the season. Bruno Lage has adopted the 4—1—4—1 formation over the past few games, but that has failed to bring in the desired results. Perhaps a 4—4—2 formation could emerge on Saturday with Raul Jimenez and Fabio Silva in attack. On availability, Pedro Neto is ruled out with a knee injury which could keep him sidelined until February next year, while Bruno Jordão remains in doubt for this fixture.
