<div><h2 style="text-align:center">Norwich vs Watford</h2><p style="text-align:center"><a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/football/eng/premier-league/watford-fc-vs-norwich-city-3841202/" target="_blank" title="Game Odds"><strong>Fri 8th November at Carrow Road</strong></a></p><h2>Norwich</h2><p>Norwich started the season scoring goals and picking up points at home. Daniel Farke has had to endure a succession of injuries to a squad that was not blessed with numbers in the first place. The injury crisis is improving and the Norwich boss will hope this coincides with a upturn in the canaries fortunes. Teemu Pukki hit the Premier League ground running but has not scored since the 3-2 home win over current Champions Man City in mid September. The home side have failed to score in four of the last six games and concede an average of over two goals a game. Attacking and free flowing style has entertained the Norfolk crowd week in week out but now gaining three points by any means has got to be the main priority. This weekends home game against bottom club Watford is the perfect opportunity to gain the prize of 3 points. Norwich currently sit 2nd bottom of the Premier league with seven points just 2 points ahead of the club they host next.</p><ul> <li><strong>KEY Strengths:</strong> Attacking style at home</li> <li><strong>KEY Weakness</strong>: Conceding over 2 goals a game</li></ul><p> </p><h2>Watford</h2><p>Watford arrive at Carrow road on friday night sitting bottom of the Premier League. This squad has power pace and athleticism in abundance. Conceding an average of over two goals a game just like their hosts Norwich is the main reason they are looking up at every other club in the table. Leader of this squad is captain Troy Deeney, he is currently injured so other players have got to step up and produce. Gerard Deulofeu has pace and skill to upset any opposition. Quique Sanchez Flores is under immense pressure to turn results around quickly as the real possibility of relegation threatens. The Hornets have not registered a win so far this season. The main reason for the lack of points has got to be the gaps in defence and lack of goals. I am not sure the Watford manager knows his best available team. Performances have picked up and three draws in the last five games suggests it will not be long until a full three points is gained.</p><ul> <li><strong>KEY Strengths:</strong> Deulofeu’s positive running</li> <li><strong>KEY Weakness</strong>: Lack of discipline in defence</li></ul><p><a href="http://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=160&amp;a=9feaaf7a-d7a2-4185-974a-81ad171951df&amp;f=3"><img alt src="https://imstore.bet365affiliates.com/AffiliateCreativeBanners/Sports/General/Bet%20Builder/en-GB/UK/STD/728x90_2.jpeg" style="width:100%;height:12px" /></a></p><h2>Betting Analysis</h2><p>Goals are almost guaranteed in this bottom of the table clash. The lack of goals from the visitors pushes me towards the host who have a proven goalscorer in Teemu Pukki. Both teams must go looking for the win and not have any fear of losing. All aspects favor the home side who welcome back fresh players from injury. The Friday night atmosphere is going to be another plus in siding with Norwich.</p><p><strong>Best Tips:</strong></p><ul> <li>Norwich to win @2.75 at <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Top Rated Bookmaker!">Bet365</a></li> <li>Both team to score and over 2.5 goals @1.86 at <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Top Rated Bookmaker!">Bet365</a></li> <li>Teemu Pukki to score anytime @2.00 at <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Top Rated Bookmaker!">Bet365</a></li></ul></div>
