Watford will look to continue their impressive start to the Championship season on Saturday afternoon, as they host Bournemouth at Vicarage Road.
Vladimir Ivic’s side go into the game third in the Championship table, with 13 points from their six league games so far this season.
Bournemouth, who like Watford were relegated from the Premier League so far this season, go into the game just one point and one position behind their hosts, after a similarly promising start to the season.
Perhaps with that – and the fact that this game comes in the midst of a heavy fixture schedule up to the November international break – Ivic has named a Watford side that shows three changes from the one that beat Blackburn 3-1 on Wednesday night as Ben Wilmot, Kiko Femenia and Joao Pedro drop out of the side, with William Troost-Ekong, Jeremy Ngakia and Stipe Perica coming into the XI.
Taking to Twitter to react to that team news, plenty of Watford fans were keen to give their opinions on their side’s starting lineup.
Here, we take a look at what some of them had to say.

Can’t believe Wilmot & Pedro dropped / rested , you never drop an inform scoring centre forward to me , Pedro is young, fit quick & scoring , poor decision hopefully not costly,if have to rest do vs Wycombe Tuesday not top team like Bournemouth

Gone for a more natural striker up front – mind you Pedro is probably better than Sarr as a striker.

Those complaining about JP being dropped need to understand how long and arduous the season is and how important it is to rest the younger players.
100% the right choice.
