Hornets can keep Bournemouth on their toes
Premier League 3pm Saturday
All of Bournemouth and Watford’s three Premier League meetings have been drawn and another closely fought match looks likely. Watford have been on the slide this winter but stopped the rot with a 0-0 draw against Middlesbrough. The Hornets’ injury list has eased and strikers Troy Deeney and Stefano Okaka can trouble the defensively suspect Cherries, who have shipped 24 goals in their last ten fixtures.
