Troy Deeney of Watford applauds the fans

3pm Saturday

Watford's tendency to tail off at the end of a campaign has been widely documented but their recent performances have been decent and they can finish off their home schedule with a victory.

Getting past 40 points was the aim for Newcastle but, since achieving that target, they have suffered 1-0 defeats at Everton and at home to West Brom.

Scoring goals has also been a problem for Watford but they are boosted by the likely return to the starting line-up of Gerard Deulofeu, who has been missed during his two-month spell on the sidelines.
