Watford won promotion to the Premier League last week thanks to a 1-0 victory over Millwall at Vicarage Road.
Therefore, today’s game away from home at Brentford isn’t as important as it appeared it might be just a matter of weeks ago. That will be a huge relief for the Hornets, who will already be looking forward to what next season will bring in the top-flight.
Xisco Munoz’s side could technically still win the league as they trail Norwich by five points, but they would need to win both games and hope the Canaries slip up.
Nevertheless, it still means there’s technically something riding on today’s game, and the players will want to continue their fine form against the Londoners.
And, here is the XI that Munoz has gone with against the Bees.
Watford: Bachmann; Cathcart, Kabasele, Sierralta, Masina; Cleverley, Hughes, Gosling; Hungbo, Sema, Gray
Subs: Foster, Troost-Ekong, Wilmot, Zinckernagel, Lazaar, Success, Perica, Navarro, Pochettino
