Premier League betting tips: Watford v Norwich

Norwich boss Daniel Farke basically admitted the game was up for his side after Saturday’s home defeat to Brighton.

They’ve lost all four league games since the season resumed, failing to score a single goal. Three of those were at home and the away match, at Arsenal, brought a 4-0 hammering. Overall, they have now found the net in just one of their last nine.

Watford have hardly been sparkling themselves – it’s one league win in 11 for the Hornets – but Nigel Pearson’s men beat Liverpool not too long ago and they have been able to obtain results against their fellow stragglers.

A point and a place outside the relegation zone, Watford have won three and drawn one of their five games against the teams currently below them. Those results include a 2-0 victory at Carrow Road in the reverse fixture.

They’ll know the importance of this game and the effect it could have on their season and, given the level of opposition, should be able to improve on Saturday’s disappointing performance at Chelsea where they lost 3-0.

They are 8/13 for the win, while another option is to back them to win to nil at 7/4. Norwich’s goalscoring problems are clear and Watford have kept five clean sheets in nine home games since Pearson joined the club in December.

It may, however, be a nervy night for the hosts given what’s at stake. With this in mind, a narrow win looks the route to possible value.

A 1-0 home win can be backed at 13/2, a tasty price which looks worth taking.

    Stunning Danny Welbeck overhead kick inspires Watford to vital win over Norwich

    Watford’s survival chances were handed a huge boost as a Danny Welbeck wonder-strike secured a 2-1 win over Norwich at Vicarage Road.

    Welbeck capitalised on a deflected cross to hit an incredible overhead kick as Nigel Pearson’s side came from a goal down to secure their first victory since the Premier League restart.

    The Canaries have now lost all six of their matches following the resumption, but took the lead through Emiliano Buendia inside the first five minutes at Watford.

    Buendia’s strike was Norwich’s first Premier League goal since February 29 and also marked the first time Daniel Farke’s men had taken the lead since that date, although their advantage was short-lived.

    Craig Dawson’s header levelled the game six minutes later with his second goal since the break.

    In the second half, Watford edged closer to claiming their first win since the restart when Welbeck struck.

    The 29-year-old put his side ahead for the first time in the match with the second bicycle kick scored by Watford since the restart – the first was Dawson’s leveller against Leicester.

    The victory moves 17th-placed Watford four points clear of the drop zone, while bottom club Norwich are now 10 points from safety.

    Norwich looked to make an immediate impact on the game and forced Ben Foster into an early save from a Buendia free-kick.

    The visitors then broke the deadlock in the fourth minute. Onel Hernandez found space before playing in Buendia, who cut inside and curled the ball into the far corner.

    Daniel Farke’s side could not hold onto their lead for long, however, with Dawson heading home at the far post from an Etienne Capoue free-kick to level the game in the 10th minute.

    Norwich looked to pile on the pressure in the latter part of the first half, playing fluent football and trying to get behind the Watford defence. But they nearly found themselves caught out when Tim Krul had to make a diving stop to deny Welbeck heading the ball into the net form a corner.

    Watford came close to taking the lead just before half-time, but Ismaila Sarr’s cross was headed just over the Norwich bar by Abdoulaye Doucoure.

    The start of the second half was similar to the start of the first. The visitors enjoyed longer periods of possession, but did not make a similar breakthrough, although Foster had to stretch out his leg to deny Max Aarons his first goal of the season.

    However the Canaries were caught out by a quick break from the home side, and Sarr’s cross was deflected before Welbeck scored his first Premier League goal for the club with a spectacular overhead kick.

    The home side were nearly caught out in the final stages, but Adam Idah directed a flick from Josip Drmic just wide of Foster’s goal.

    Although Norwich tried to force their way back into the game and claim a point, Pearson’s side were able to hold out for their first win since their shock victory over Premier League champions Liverpool in February.
