8pm Wednesday

Javi Gracia has walked into a very tough situation at Watford and may not be able to stop them sliding to a damaging defeat at Stoke.

The Hornets have lost 11 of their last 16 league games and are likely to be relegated unless they improve under the new manager.

Stoke have benefited from an upturn after appointing Paul Lambert and can build on their impressive 2-0 win at home to Huddersfield.

They played with a lot more energy and aggression against the Terriers and may be too strong for injury-hit Watford.
