Time at Club:
ProfileWatford are managed by Javi Gracia who replaced the sacked Marco Silva in January 2018 on an 18-month contract.
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. Silva only made it half-way through the campaign, while it's hoped Gracia will have a prolonged stay.
A mixed set of recent results has seen Watford collect wins versus Huddersfield Town & Fulham while suffering adverse results at Ajax, Manchester City, West Ham United, Chelsea, Wolverhampton Wanderers & Arsenal. Draws against Southampton & Wolverhampton Wanderers has seen them show mid-table form at best.
