Preview: West Bromwich Albion vs. Watford - prediction, team news, lineups
West Bromwich Albion and Watford square off at The Hawthorns on Monday evening looking to build on their positive starts to the season.
While the Baggies earned a draw away at Middlesbrough on the opening weekend, recently-relegated Watford came out on top against Sheffield United.
Given their struggles during 2021-22, Steve Bruce would have hoped for an easier beginning to the season than making the long trip to face Middlesbrough.
Nevertheless, a comeback 1-1 draw at the Riverside Stadium should only benefit the Baggies going forward as they bid to launch a sustained bid for promotion.
