Match preview

West Bromwich Albion have a fully-fit squad but Oliver Burke, Nacer Chadli and Gareth McAuley are all lacking match fitness.

Watford remain without Craig Cathcart (knee), Sebastian Prodl and Younes Kaboul (both thigh), but Miguel Britos is available after suspension. 

Nathaniel Chalobah has been ruled out for an unspecified period with a knee injury.

Did you know?

West Bromwich Albion have failed to score in three of their four Premier League encounters with Watford, but they did win the other 3-1 at The Hawthorns last season.

Watford have won 11 points from their six PL matches of 2017/18 - their second-best tally at this stage of a top-flight season.

The Hornets are aiming to extend their club-record total of three consecutive top-flight away victories to four. 

West Brom’s next defeat will be their 200th in the Premier League.

What the managers say 

Tony Pulis: "Watford have gone under the radar with the quality of player that they've brought in. They look a very capable team and it'll be a tough game."

Marco Silva: "It's a difficult situation (Chalobah). We need to find a solution, to be strong in our way."
