Watford vs Southampton: Back the Hornets to sting the Saints as they fight the drop

Watford welcome Southampton to Vicarage Road today, knowing that victory would be a timely boost to their Premier League survival hopes.

The Hornets currently sit just one point above the relegation zone following Thursday's defeat at Burnley, while the Saints need just one more win to reach the 40-point mark.

Here's all you need to know ahead of placing bets.

However, it deserves to be mentioned that they have a game in hand, and considering the state of teams below them in the table, the Hornets are still not in imminent danger.

In the meantime, the Saints have a comfortable buffer of points over the relegation cut-off, and just maybe, if they are able to pull off a magnificent run in these remaining match-ups, they could aim for a European ticket.
