Watford v Newcastle United: When is it? Where can I watch it? What is the latest team news?

The Magpies take on The Hornets on Saturday, eight days on from their 1-1 draw with Leeds United.

Monday, 20th September 2021, 1:30 pm

Watford present Steve Bruce’s side with another chance to secure their first three-points of the season.

However, Newcastle have won just one of their last 10 games in all competitions against Watford - a sole Ayoze Perez goal was enough to collect that win in November 2018.

Watford currently sit in 11th position in the Premier League having taken six points from their first five games since returning to the Premier League under Xisco Munoz.
