Is there any sting left in the Hornets' tail?

The Hornets are rock bottom of the table and they have already changed managers after a dreadful start to the season. Yet they picked up a morale boosting away draw at Tottenham last time out, and this could be a good time to face Bournemouth. Eddie Howe’s men have gone two games without scoring, and they still cannot keep a clean sheet, so they look vulnerable right now.</span></p><h2><span style="font-size:20px">Team News</span></h2><p><span style="font-size:20px">Danny Welbeck limped off after just a few minutes on his return from injury at the weekend. Captain Troy Deeney is injured, so manager Quique Sanchez Flores could call upon Andre Grey to lead the line, supported by Roberto Perreyra and perhaps Gerard Deulofeu if he is looking for more spark and creativity. Abdoulaye Doucouré is a strong midfield presence alongside Nathaniel Chalobah. Record signing Ismaila Sarr could come in at some point, but up until now options have been limited for the Senegalese winger.</span></p><p><span style="font-size:20px">Bournemouth’s greatest strength over the past few years has been their attacking play, and they were scoring goals for fun in the early stages of the season. However, they lost 1-0 to Arsenal before the international break, and then drew 0-0 at home to Norwich – the team with the league’s worst defensive record – on Saturday. Dominic Solanke continues to misfire, and his barren streak is rubbing off on Callum Wilson. Ryan Fraser has been reinstated to the team ahead of Joshua King, but Bournemouth are not creating many chances at the moment.</span></p><h2><span style="font-size:20px">Betting Analysis</span></h2><p><span style="font-size:20px">Watford cannot go the whole season without a win and this seems like the perfect opportunity to pick up their first triumph of the season. The odds are attractive on an outright home win for the Hornets, but you could cover yourself with a draw no bet option if you are feeling more cautious. Bournemouth have not won in their last three league games, and they also lost 2-0 to Burton Albion in the league cup. It seems like Watford need victory much more than Bournemouth in this game, and that added motivation could well carry them over the line.</span></p><p><strong><span style="font-size:20px">Tip: <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="Bet365">Watford to win at 2.20 (6/5) with Bet365; Watford draw no bet at 1.66 (4/6)</a></span></strong></p></div></div></div></div></div></div>
