NOR vs WAT Dream11 : Relegation zone slumped sides take on each other in a match of pivotal importance for either side
The season began in aplomb for Norwich City with the side setting the league alight by bombarding their way to a slew of impressive performances but it didn’t take much time for them to unravel. The side have regressed shambolically after their stunning win over Manchester City, a moment which was touted to be as a defining moment for the side in their ongoing edition of the season.
It was anything but for the side with the fallout from their paper thin defence seeing the side stumble and go on a wayward and torrid spiral in the marquee league to find themselves slumped in 19h place ahead of today’s impending encounter. They are winless in their last five ties to see the side garner a mere 7 points from 11 matches, a run of form which the side know they need to wrench out of at the earliest.
Elsewhere, while Norwich City still managed to win a couple of matches in the early run in, Watford have not been able to do even that much. The only side to yet register a win in the league, the unit sit firmly planted in the trenches of the points tally with a mere 5 points from 5 draws and 6 defeats from their 11 gameweeks. They have made for despondent viewing, arguably the worst side in the league with the unit having little to offer on the attacking front, coming into today’s encounter in the wake of a 2-1 defeat against Chelsea.

NOR vs WAT Dream11 Goal-Keeper
Althouhg the goals have dried up for Norwich City in the bygone month, the quality of their attacking players and the fearless brand of football the side indulge in was there for all to see in the early exchanges. And up against Watford, they’ll be looking to revive those same mesmerising displays at home, a set of events which see us bring in Watford’s goal-keeper given the saves he’s set to make in this clash.
NOR vs WAT Dream11 Defenders
When you have two sides with the worst defence meeting each other today, the chances of a cleansheet being a realistic likelihood from this match is extremely unlikely. The two have shipped in the 49 goals in 22 matches till now, seeing their defensive acumen vanish in smoke with both having done nothing to over themselves in glory.
However, Watford have recently adjusted their backline and tried to shut out sides in their quest of scoring goals and given the fact that they have failed to score either, Norwich City might just get a much yearned for cleansheet here as well. It sees us bring in the two defenders from either side for this one with us choosing Ben Godfrey and Maximiliano Aarons from the home side whilst from Watford we have Christian Kabasele and Adam Masina represent us.
NOR vs WAT Dream11 Midfielders
Two players who had emerged as the pivotal component of Norwich City’s enterprising and tenacity filled displays in the attacking sojourns for the side were Todd Cantwell and Emiliano Buendia. The two were unsparing and unforgiving, relentlessly and ruthlessly battering oppositions to pile on the goals, seeing us repose faith in the duo for this clash as well.
Marco Stipermann will be accompanying him for this one while form the opposition we have their leading goal scorer with the one goal, Roberto Pereyra come in for us along with Nathaniel Chalobah.
NOR vs WAT Dream11 Strikers
One of the main reasons for Norwich City’s luscious and enigmatic displays was their Finnish striker Teemu Pukki. The striker was in indomitable form, a player who used the repertoire of his skill set to plummet sides and rake up the 6 goals and two assists to become one of the hottest and most yearned for properties in the early part of the season.
We envision him rediscovering his form come today’s encounter, seeing us repose faith in the player and earmark him as the lone pick over here.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Pukki will also be our captain for the match while Buendia is the vice-captain.
