Two of the newly promoted teams in the English Premier League square off as Norwich City host Watford at Carrow Road. Both clubs are finding the transition to the topflight difficult and with goals particularly hard to come by, a low scoring contest looks to be on the cards.

It has become a regular occurrence for Norwich City to gain promotion to the Premier and then find it difficult adapting to the demands of the topflight. They are struggling again this season and are without a win after five matches.

Norwich City are yet to pick up any points this season but manager Daniel Farke will be aware of their difficult fixture list having already faced Manchester City, Liverpool and Leicester City. They head into Saturday’s clash off the back of a 1-0 defeat to Arsenal in their previous match.

While the Canaries will be feeling hopeful against a team they came up with, there are still a few worrying signs at Carrow Road. They have generally looked tame in attack and have found the net just once this season.

Watford are also coming off a defeat, losing 2-0 at home to Wolves last time out in the Premier League. They created a few chances but generally lacked intensity, finishing with just two attempts on target.

The Hornets are also enduring a difficult time in the Premier League and have failed to secure a win since the opening weekend. The defeat to Wolves means Xisco Munoz's men have now lost their last three matches.

Watford have been unconvincing going forward and are without a goal since scoring three against Aston Villa in their opening fixture. Summer signing Joshua King has also struggled to settle at Vicarage Road and is still seeking his first goal for Watford.

How the bookies view it

Norwich City have the edge among the bookies and are priced at 24/19 by SBK to claim the win. A victory for Watford is valued at 23/10 by Paddy Power while SBK is offering odds of 5/2 for a draw.

Head to head

Watford have a 17-15 edge with five draws from 39 previous matches against Norwich City. The Hornets did the double over Norwich in the Championship last season, winning both matches 1-0.

Players to watch

Despite losing to Arsenal, Norwich City will take some confidence from their defensive display after conceding just one goal. They will be keen to build on that performance and with Grant Hanley and Andrew Omobamidele featuring in central defence, they will be targeting a clean sheet at 7/4 with Skybet.

Watford had a similar defensive display against Tottenham Hotspur, conceding just once after limiting Spurs to a few chances. William Troost-Ekong and Francisco Sierralta are the preferred central defensive pairing and will be keen to keep a clean sheet at 11/4 with bet365.

Anything else catch the eye?

Norwich City and Watford have produced under 2.5 goals in their last two meetings and could be set for a repeat at 14/19 with SBK. There has been BTTS NO in both matches and BetVictor is offering evens for a similar outcome.

There have been halftime draws in two of the last three matches between Norwich City and Watford and Saturday clash could be set to follow a similar pattern at 13/11 with SBK.
