Watford vs Wolverhampton WanderersEnglish Premier League, KO: 15:00 Sep 11, 2021, Vicarage Road
Wolverhampton Wanderers travel to Vicarage Road for an English Premier League clash with Watford as they continue the wait for their first win of the season. Goals have been hard to come by for both teams and a low scoring encounter could be on the cards.
Watford suffered a 1-0 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur in their previous Premier League fixture. They fell behind just before the break and struggled to find a way back into the contest.
The Hornets claimed a 3-2 victory over Aston Villa in their opening fixture this season and have since struggled to reach that level. They have lost their last two matches with a 2-0 defeat against Brighton preceding the loss to Spurs.
Apart from the opening fixture where they scored three goals, Xisco Munoz' men have failed to find the net in their last two matches.
It has been a difficult start to life in the Premier League for Wolverhampton Wanderers manager Bruno Lage as he seeks his first win of the season. They have lost their opening three matches and were beaten 1-0 by Manchester United last time out.
The defeat to United would be particularly disappointing for Lage as Wolves failed to turn their dominance into a win. Despite the result, they can take confidence from their performance and will be keen to get something at Vicarage Road.
Like Watford, Wolves have also struggled with a lack of cutting edge in attack are still seeking their first goal of the season. Adama Traore has been wasteful in attack while striker Raul Jimenez is still trying to find his feet this term after his return from a long layoff.
