Watford welcome Stoke City to Vicarage Road for a Carabao Cup third round clash. The Hornets will be targeting a deep cup run this season and having made a decent start to seaason, should have the upper hand over the Championship side.

Watford warmed up for the visit of Stoke with a 3-1 victory over Norwich City in the English Premier League on Saturday. Emmanuel Dennis opened the scoring in the first half while Ismaila Sarr netted a brace after the break.

The Hornets appear to be settling down well to life in the Premier League. Xisco Munoz's men saw off Crystal Palace 1-0 in the previous round of the Carabao Cup and will be targeting a deep run to build some confidence.

While the likes of Emmanuel Dennis and Ismaila Sarr have impressed going forward this season, Watford have kept just one clean sheet in six matches across all competitions this season.

Stoke City overcame Doncaster Rovers 2-0 in the previous round of the Carabao Cup. They were comfortable throughout the encounter and secured the win through goals from Tom Ince and Sam Surridge.

Things have not been particularly smooth for Stoke City since that victory over Doncaster Rovers. They have claimed just one win in their last four matches. Stoke have been beaten twice in that run, including a 2-1 defeat to Derby County in the Championship on Saturday.

Stoke City have battled defensive problems all season and are without a clean sheet in their last four matches. They have also conceded seven goals in that run with a 3-0 defeat to Fulham highlighting their vulnerability at the back.

How the bookies view it
