Not much to separate Watford and Bournemouth
Points could be shared at Vicarage Road
Kick-off 3pm Saturday
Watford and Bournemouth will be looking to hang onto the coat-tails of the top five for as long as possible but might have to settle for a point each at Vicarage Road.
It is arguable that Watford, having already played three of the big six, have made the better start but they are getting plenty of respect from the markets.
Bournemouth deserved their 2-1 victory at home to Crystal Palace on Monday and their enterprising style of football may be enough to earn a point in Hertfordshire.
1pt 5-2 general
Gerard Deulofeu, Sebastian Prodl, Miguel Britos and Stefano Okaka return to the squad but Marc Navarro (knock), Daryll Janmaat (knee) and Tom Cleverley (Achilles) are out.
Charlie Daniels (knee) and Kyle Taylor (calf) are the only absentees for the Cherries.
Five of Watford's last six fixtures with Bournemouth have finished level.
