Watford started their Premier League return campaign in style on the opening weekend after defeating much-fancied Aston Villa at Vicarage Road.


The Hornets boast a typically eclectic squad full of names hoping to make a name for themselves on the grandest stage of all going into 2021/22.

Emmanuel Dennis found the net on his Watford debut at the weekend and will be determined to build on his bright start in English football following a move from Club Brugge.

Brighton also head into the game in high spirits having come back to beat Burnley from a losing position on the opening day.

Boss Graham Potter has growing pedigree in the Premier League and will be determined for his side to deliver on their potential this term. See here for our full Premier League TV schedule.

Our prediction: Brighton v Watford

This could be an appealing game for the neutral, even if Brighton v Watford doesn't initially jump off the page.

The Seagulls created plenty of chances last season but infamously struggled to finish them. A more clinical edge in 2021/22 would see them skim up the league.

Watford proved they're not just here to make up the numbers with a bristling display against Villa and while they have shortcomings at the back, they won't be afraid to push on against teams expected to finish near them.

Our prediction: Brighton 2-2 Watford (20/1 at bet365)
