Salomon Rondon could be in line to start after returning from injury to play the final 20 minutes of Newcastle's draw with Southampton last time out.

The on-loan West Brom striker's return will offer competition to Yoshinori Muto and Joselu, who have scored just three goals between them.

One of the few players to receive the plaudits so far is goalkeeper Martin Dubravka. He has been an ever-present member, playing every minute of the Magpies' 10 league games.

Watford captain Troy Deeney missed Saturday's 3-0 win over Huddersfield Town, but could be fit in time for the trip to the North East.

In his absence, Isaac Success scored his second goal of the season, on the score sheet with Roberto Pereyra and Gerard Deulofeu.

Ex Magpies right-back Daryl Janmaat is likely to miss the journey to his former employees because of injury.

What is the form of Newcastle and Watford?

Watford were tipped to be in and around the bottom half of the table, however their wicked start has steered them well clear of danger so far.

Javi Gracia's side opened up their campaign with five wins from five - even topping the Premier League at one point.

Now on a two-game winning streak, the Hornets had previously collected just one point in four matches but have now hit form just in time for the Toon clash.

Newcastle's wait for a win continues, with their total of three points coming in 0-0 draws at Cardiff City, Crystal Palace and Southampton.

Benitez's team have already faced five of last term's top six in Tottenham Hotspur, Chelsea, Manchester City, Arsenal and Manchester United, but now is the time to really kick-start their season before it is too late.

What are the odds?

Newcastle team are priced at a 17/10 shot to achieve their first win of the season.

21/10 is the price for a draw while it's a 7/4 punt for Watford to pile more misery on the Geordies.
