WAT Vs SOU Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Crucial encounter in terms of the relegation scrape awaits us in the league today
We might have just one fixture on our hands today but it’s a fixture more than enthralling enough to help quell our penchant for riveting affairs in the Premier League. The position these sides occupy in the points tally is hardly going to deter the quality of today’s tie with us set to be in for a cracking affair when Watford and Southampton take on each other.
For both the sides, the three points today could end up acting as the difference between their survival this season. Both sit precariously close to the relegation zone, making this fixture a must win one for both the teams who’ll be hungry for the three points on offer.
Currently in a relatively safer position as compared to Watford, Southampton find themselves a solid 7 points clear of the bottom three. However, it’s a fast vanishing cushion with the side only winning two of its last fine affairs after being handed over a desolate 2-0 defeat by Southampton the last time around.
Elsewhere, Watford sit in a way more perilous spot with the club just the singular point above the relegation zone. The club’s 1-0 defeat to Burnley the last time around leaves them with the frugal one win in five, form which has brought them right on the verge of dropping into the trenches of the league.
This will be a tentative affair, one neither side will really approach with free flow with us envisioning today’s match curtailing in a draw.

WAT Vs SOU Dream11 Defenders
Despite doing well for themselves against Arsenal for large parts of the game, Southampton were left ruing their defensive brand of football. The side’s vulnerabilities in defence came back to haunt them with the team going off to sleep at crucial junctures to see their entire hard work being undone.
However, despite this narrative, we are still going to stick with the two defenders from the side. The majority of the match against Arsenal was reasonable showing from the side owing to the electric flair of Ryan Bertrand and Jan Bednarek.
Elsewhere, after letting in just the one goal apiece against Leicester City and Burnley, we are going to repose faith in the duo of the tenacious fullbacks, Kiko Femenia and Adam Masina from the home side.
