Bottom side Huddersfield will take on Watford in the Premier League on Saturday at the John Smith’s Stadium.
Watford are 10th in the league, but their major attraction lies outside the Premier League. The Hornets are in the FA Cup final, where they will face Manchester City next month. They staged a great comeback to beat Wolves in the semi-final, and it has given them a purpose for the rest of the season. Winning the FA Cup would hand them Europa League qualification, but so would finishing seventh.
Javi Gracia’s side is just a point behind seventh-placed Leicester, and they have played a game less. A winning run as the season ends could well take Watford into the Europa League irrespective of the FA Cup final. Last week’s loss to Arsenal did them no favors, as a freak goal gave the Gunners a 1-0 win. Troy Deeney was sent off in questionable circumstances, and the captain will miss the game against Huddersfield.
Watford have lost three out of their last five league games, winning only one of those. This form is not the best by any standards, and Gracia will want his side to bounce back.
Meanwhile, Huddersfield can’t wait for the season to get over. The Terriers have endured a terrible Premier League campaign, and they are rooted to the bottom of the table. Huddersfield has won just three league games all season, and they have accumulated just 14 points. Last month’s win over Wolves is their only one this year, and they have lost their previous five league games.
Jan Siewert is in charge after David Wagner was fired earlier this season. He has not brought about significant improvements, and Spurs thrashed his side 4-0 last time. Huddersfield have scored just once in their previous three games, and they will want a better performance in their penultimate home game.
Karlan Grant has impressed in recent weeks after the Terriers have struggled in attack the whole season. He should lead the line again for Siewert, but he is an injury doubt for the game. Huddersfield’s last home game is against Manchester United, so this could be the best chance of winning that previous Premier League game before bowing out.
Deeney will be out for Watford, courtesy of the red card he received last week. Watford have appealed the decision, and they are waiting for the result. Aside from Deeney, Gracia has other injuries to deal with. Gerard Deulofeu has an ankle problem, and he missed the Arsenal game. Roberto Pereyra is also a doubt, and he should recover from a groin problem. Andre Gray is reasonably assured of starting in attack now.

Despite these absentees, Watford will be hopeful of getting the three points. The total goals should be more than 2.5 in this one, and the Hornets should clinch the three points. Huddersfield will like to keep it tight, but their poor defensive record recently shows that the gates are likely to open.
