Brighton & Hove Albion
Brighton has not won in the Premier League for the past five rounds, and indeed, in the last ten matches in the championship, the Seagulls have won only once. This could not but affect the positions of the Graham Potter team. Brighton is in 15th place in the standings for the match with Watford, with only two points of advantage over the relegation zone.
Brighton could well have been lower if it hadn’t been able to win back 1:3 in the away match against West Ham in the last round. In other League matches since the beginning of the year, Brighton lost to Everton (0:1) and Bournemouth (1:3), and tied with Chelsea (1:1) and Aston Villa (1:1 )
At home, Brighton in the last ten meetings in the Premier League lost only to Sheffield (0:1) and Leicester (0:2). In other matches, the Seagulls were more successful. This winter, Brighton at home split the draw with Chelsea (1:1), Aston Villa (1:1) and Wolverhampton (2:2), defeated Bournemouth (2:0).
Injured by Brighton Dan Burn and Jose Izquierdo. Shane Duffy is under question.
At some point, it seemed that Watford no longer had to fight for survival. The Hornets successfully got out of the relegation zone, giving an amazing series of five matches.
However, Watford is in the relegation zone. Hornets occupy the 19th position, behind the 17th Aston Villa by two points. After a terrific breakthrough with Nigel Pearson, Watford was followed by a recession, which now seems logical. In two previous matches in the League, the Hornets lost to Aston Villa (1:2) and Everton (2:3). Moreover, in a meeting with the Toffies, Watford led in the score with a difference of two goals, and from the 71st minute played in the majority.
Pearson’s players also flew out of the FA Cup from Tranmere, losing in extra time (1:2). This all indicates that there are still many problems in the team.
Away, Watford won only one of six previous matches in the Premier League. This winter, the Hornets lost to Leicester (0:2), Liverpool (0:2), Aston Ville (1:2), tied Sheffield (1:1), and defeated Bournemouth (3:0).
Daryl Yanmat is injured. The participation of Ismaila Sarr, Nathaniel Chalobah and Kiko Femenia is in doubt.

Brighton & Hove Albion vs Watford FC Prediction
Despite all the unsuccessful results, Brighton looks like a more working mechanism, which does not have as many problems as Watford. On the other hand, Nigel Pearson has already shown how he can motivate his players. Therefore, it is clearly worth expecting a very combat match. Since both clubs play unsuccessfully in defense, but they have good indicators in attack, we will definately see a spectacular game
We predict a win for Brighton & Hove Albion.
