Blackpool Vs Watford Tips and Prediction
Slaven Bilic would have been encouraged by his team’s ability to be as merciless against Swansea City three days later after seeing his Watford team easily defeat Stoke City last weekend.
However, the visitors overcame a halftime deficit to score a shocking 2-1 victory at Vicarage Road, leaving Watford with only two victories out of their previous 10 games overall.
Although Bilic will contend that his squad deserved at least a point, he is already well aware that at the team he chose to join late last month, results matter more than performances.
Watford lost, leaving the Hertfordshire-based team with just seven points, but the defeat came on the same day as top-two teams Sheffield United and Norwich City also dropped points.
Ismaila Sarr is back in the lineup, and after scoring in back-to-back games, Bilic will be optimistic about resuming a winning streak against their upcoming opponents.
Blackpool originally flourished under Michael Appleton, earning eight points from their first six games of the current campaign.
Only four, including four losses, have come from the subsequent half-dozen games, and it took a goalless draw at Sunderland earlier this week to stop the bleeding.
The Seasiders enter games against Watford and Sheffield United fighting to stay out of the relegation zone, while Appleton will be more than happy with a share of the spoils at the Stadium of Light.
Blackpool has only won once at home since the first day of the season, and they have only scored twice in six games overall.
Bilic will be eager to get his team a win after their loss to Swansea. We predict that the Hornets will win this match by an odd goal in three, despite the fact that we do not believe the visitors will have it all their own way in the North-West.
