Chris Wilder, the manager of Watford, will be pleased that his team’s lack of any fitness worries going into this game is due to the absence of any injuries in the squad. Due to his suspension, Kortney Hause cannot participate in this contest.
In our opinion, the Hornets might choose Daniel Bachmann, Ryan Porteous, Craig Cathcart, Wesley Hoedt, Jeremy Ngakia, Imran Louza, Hamza Choudhury, Ismael Koné, Ken Sema, Keinan Davis, and Joo Pedro for the game and use the 3-5-2 configuration.
Manager Neil Warnock of Huddersfield must make decisions from a group that has some fitness issues. Ollie Turton (Cruciate Ligament Rupture), Yuta Nakayama (Achilles Tendon Rupture), and Lee Nicholls (Shoulder Injury) are out due to injuries.
In our opinion, the Terriers should go with a 4-2-3-1 formation and select players like Tomas Vaclik, Matty Pearson, Tom Lees, Michal Helik, Josh Ruffels, Jonathan Hogg, R. Edmonds-Green, Josh Koroma, Jack Rudoni, Duane Holmes, and Daniel Ward.
