Watford are managed by Marco Silva who, in May 2017, became the club's ninth boss in five years after penning a two-year deal to replace Walter Mazzarri.
Watford have previously appeared in the Premier League on two occasions, however they lasted just a single season each time. But, after winning promotion for a third time in 2015 they were able to preserve their top-flight status for the first time under Quique Sanchez Flores, who lasted just a year in the dugout, while his replacement Walter Mazzarri also lasted just a single season.
A single draw against Liverpool in an otherwise black and white set of results has seen Watford struggle for consistent results. Wins against Bournemouth and Swansea City and defeats to Bristol City, Manchester City, Chelsea, Everton, Leicester City, Liverpool and Hull City demonstate slightly erratic form.
