UNDER 2.5 GOALS DOUBLE
Newcastle have lost their last 3 games and are struggling for goals. They are set up very defensively but will be allowed more space than usually against this attacking Watford side. Away from home Watford have performed well and have often found results against sides who are encouraged to open up at home. This game should be an interesting fixture as we will see if Newcastle have the quality to score in a more open game. Watford have the quality and may have enough for an away win here.
Swansea are struggling, especially at home and the injury to Abraham has made things worse. They could be bottom of the table with a defeat here and it’s hard to see where the goals are going to come from. Bournemouth put 4 past Huddersfield away last weekend and are finally finding their feet this season. Goals aren’t flowing for the strikers but last weeks performance should have eased the pressure. They are an attacking side and have improved at the back of late and should be able to pile more misery on Swansea.
Sheffield United will be looking to keep the pressure on Wolves as they look to beat a struggling Birmingham side. They are currently third in the table and are scoring goals for fun. Injuries and mistakes cost them against Fulham last week and they will be looking to rectify that result here. Birmingham are slipping towards relegation this season and recent results haven’t help. They are going to an in form side and don’t have the quality for a result here.
