Plenty of goals are expected at Watford
Kick-off 3pm Saturday
Watford were the better side for long spells of last Saturday's 4-2 defeat at Chelsea but they made defensive errors towards the end and their dodgy back-line could harm their chances of beating Stoke at Vicarage Road.
Watford have won a lot of praise this season but have conceded 17 goals in nine games and are still without injured centre-backs Younes Kaboul and Sebastian Prodl.
Stoke can take advantage of Watford's defensive deficiencies but will struggle to keep the lively Hornets at bay.
Over 2.5 goals
2pts 19-20 Betfair
Roberto Pereyra was injured in the 4-2 loss at Chelsea and joins Nathaniel Chalobah, Isaac Success, Craig Cathcart, Younes Kaboul and Sebastian Prodl on the sidelines.
Xherdan Shaqiri and Tom Edwards have shaken off knocks but Bruno Martins Indi (calf) is out and Peter Crouch (back) is a doubt.
Both teams have scored in Watford's last four matches.
