When is Watford v Norwich?

Barring any health emergencies, the game is scheduled to take place on Tuesday July 7.

What time does Watford v Norwich kick-off?

The game is scheduled for a 6pm kick-off and is one of three Premier League matches that day.

What is at stake?

This one is a bit of a relegation six-pointer. Norwich are in the last chance saloon and look like they can’t afford another slip-up. A defeat would likely be the knockout blow to their survival hopes, but a win could rekindle hope of a great escape.

Watford, meanwhile, are teetering just above the bottom three and need a win to boost their own survival chances.

Where can I watch Watford v Norwich?

It’s being broadcast by Sky Sports.

Is Watford v Norwich free-to-air?

It is, yes. This one has been picked for free-to-air, so look for it on Sky One as well as the usual sports channels.

What is the team news?

Norwich will have to face this one without key midfield man Todd Cantwell, who is suffering from a hamstring strain. He does have a chance of facing West Ham on Saturday though. Fellow midfielder Kenny McLean and Alex Tettey are also minor doubts.

Moritz Leitner, Grant Hanley, Christoph Zimmermann, and Sam Byram are all still sidelined.

Watford report no fresh injury concerns for this one, but Daryl Janmaat, Gerard Deulofeu, and Isaac Success are all still missing for boss Nigel Pearson.

What happened in the reverse match?

It was Watford who earned a vital away win at Carrow Road back in November. Deulofeu and Andre Gray gave them a 2-0 lead before the hour, and they were able to see it out despite Christian Kabasele’s subsequent red card.

What are the odds?

Watford, who have taken one point from their last five matches, are the 13/20 favourites here. Norwich, who have taken no points at all from their last five matches, are 17/4. The draw can be backed at 29/10.
