Sunderland can drag Watford into the relegation scrap
The Hornets showed a lack of ambition when losing 1-0 at Crystal Palace last time out and the pressure is growing because they still have to play against four of the top seven.
Sunderland are in a much worse position but star man Jermain Defoe will be full of confidence after his England exploits and can help them to secure at least a point.
Draw or Sunderland double chance
1pt Evs Coral, Ladbrokes
Valon Behrami (muscle strain) is a doubt and Roberto Pereyra, Christian Kabasele, Ben Watson and Mauro Zarate are out.
Victor Anichebe and Lamine Kone have shaken off injuries but Lee Cattermole (hip) lacks match fitness.
Watford have won two of their last 13 league fixtures.
