Watford are managed byWalter Mazzarri who signed a three-year deal at Vicarage Road in the summer of 2016.
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.
A mixed set of recent results has seen Watford collect wins versus Middlesbrough, Manchester United and West Ham United while suffering adverse results at Burnley, Arsenal and Chelsea. Draws against Swansea City, Bournemouth, Gillingham and Southampton has seen them show mid-table form at best.
