‘Absolutely brilliant’, ‘Big call’ – Plenty of Watford fans react to breaking team news for Bristol City clash

Watford will be aiming to return to winning ways on Saturday afternoon, when they host Bristol City at Vicarage Road.

The Hornets go into the game fourth in the Championship table, but seven points adrift of the automatic promotion places, having taken just two points from a possible nine in their last three games.

For their part, Bristol City currently sit 11th in the second-tier standings, seven points behind the play-off places, and have lost four straight games in all competitions, meaning this could present something of an opportunity for the hosts.

Did Abdoulaye Doucoure leave Watford for a higher or lower fee than he arrived for?

Perhaps with that in mind, Watford boss Xisco Munoz has named a side that shows three changes from the one that played out a goalless draw with Coventry last time out, as Joao Pedro, Will Hughes and Kiko Femenia come into the side for Andre Gray and Troy Deeney – who drop to the bench – and Jeremy Ngakia, who misses out through injury.

Taking to Twitter to react to that team news, plenty of Watford fans were keen to give their thoughts on their side’s starting lineup for the game.

Here, we take a look at what some of those supporters had to say.
