The hosts picked up their first points of the season prior to the international break with a 1-0 win at Norwich City. Wayne Rooney’s late penalty was enough to earn a surprise win after Teemu Pukki squandered his side’s chance from the spot earlier in the second half.

The Hornets, meanwhile, were stung by George Puscas in a 1-0 defeat at Reading. They sit just outside a play-off position in seventh on seven points after four games.

Vladimir Icic’s side are 5/4 favourites to win this match. The draw is 23/10, with a home win 11/5.

Watford have been buoyed by the return of Ismaila Sarr and Troy Deeney in recent weeks, but with Friday representing England’s domestic transfer deadline day it remains to be seen if they will still be Watford players by full-time at Pride Park.

Sarr is being linked with a £30m move to Crystal Palace, with club captain Deeney reportedly wanted by Southampton.

Daryl Janmaat has been released by the club during the international break.

The Rams, meanwhile, may have their own fight on their hands, too, with 19-year-old attacking midfielder Louie Sibley linked to Leeds United earlier this week.

The academy graduate only signed a new contract last month, though, so it would surely take a sizable offer to tempt Philip Cocu and the Derby board into selling their prized asset.

Liverpool’s Harry Wilson, who played for Derby on loan under Frank Lampard in the 2018/19 season, has been linked with a return to the club on another loan deal.

Given the talented winger was pursued by Premier League outfit Burnley only a few weeks ago, that would represent a major coup.

Both teams have scored in the last seven meetings between these sides, with the last meeting in April 2015 finishing 2-2.

However, given only one of the eight league games the two sides have competed in so far this season has seen both sides score, I’m happy to oppose both teams scoring at 21/20 (Bet Victor).

Indeed, Watford’s four matches have seen just three goals scored (two for, one against), with Icic’s 5-3-2 formation clearly prioritising defence over offence.

Derby have scored just two goals themselves in their four games, meanwhile, so unfortunately it’s hard to see anything close to a Friday night thriller.
