Middlesbrough will make the trip to Vicarage Road this weekend with the away side aiming to leap out of the bottom three after a dismal start to the season where Watford are also experiencing one of their worst starts in recent years.
The Hornets have failed to get into the promotion talk for some time now, and they are heading into this game down in 16th in what has been another dreadful start for them. The club come into this one having been battered 3-0 by Leeds United, drawing 2-2 with West Bromwich Albion before that. Tom Ince and Matheus Martins scored in that draw with the Baggies.
This also means the last win for Watford came in a 2-0 victory over Birmingham City that saw Mileta Rajovic score in added time, whereas Ryan Andrews bagged with basically the final kick of the game.
As for Boro, they are down in 22nd in what has - like last season - been another struggle in the first handful of games. This time around, Michael Carrick's job is no doubt hanging by a thread, but despite the poor league form, his side managed to get off the mark with a 2-0 win over Bradford City in the EFL Cup last time out.
However, Better yet, the club managed to get back to winning ways in the league too, as Riley McGree and Jonny Howson scored in a home win over Southampton. Nevertheless, this was just their first win of the season with Boro already experiencing five losses this season and two draws. Carrick's side have also let in 15 and won seven games too.
