This weekend’s EFL Preview

Watford v Derby

Watford host Derby at Vicarage road, at 19:45 on Friday night. The Hornets go into the clash in good form, losing just one out of their last eight. The Rams are also in good form, winning 5 of their last 6.

The last meeting between the two sides was a 1-0 win to Watford. Joao Pedro scored the only goal of the game in the 76th minute.

Matthew Clarke is a key player for Derby County. The loanee has been their most consistent performer this season, with an AMR of 7.02.

Ismaila Sarr is a player to watch for Watford. The right winger has been involved in 11 goals this season, with 7 goals and 4 assists.


Watford : 17 / 20

Draw : 9 / 4

Derby : 15 / 4

Coventry v Brentford

Brentford make the trip North this weekend, to take on Coventry at the St Andrews stadium. Coventry go into the clash winless in 5. Brentford were flying high a few weeks ago, but back to back defeats means the Bees will be looking to win their first match in three.  

The last meeting between the two sides was a 2-0 win for Brentford. Ivan Toney struck twice in 10 minutes to secure all 3 points for the home side.

A player to watch for Brentford has to be Ivan Toney. The centre forward has been ruthless in front of goal this season, scoring 24 goals in 30 matches, and not to mention he’s had 9 assists. Toney signed for Brentford in September from Peterborough and has adapted to the step up in quality tremendously, and it’s only a matter of time before we see Ivan playing his football in the Premier League.

Gustavo Hamer is one to watch for the Sky Blues. The central midfielder has scored 5 goals this season, and has an AMR of 7.04.


Coventry : 5 / 6

Draw : 13 / 5

Brentford : 10 / 3

Huddersfield v Swansea

Huddersfield Town host Swansea City on Saturday at 15:00, at the John Smith’s stadium. The Terriers are in meager form at the moment, without a win this calendar year. The Swans are in fantastic form, unbeaten in 10.

The last meeting between the two sides was a 2-1 away win for Huddersfield. Town took an early lead, with a 23rd minute strike from Harry Toffolo, but Swansea responded 10 minutes later, with a converted penalty from Ayew. Huddersfield then took the lead again in the 67th minute, with a goal from Josh Koroma, which was enough to send them home with all 3 points.

Isaac Mbenza is a player to watch for Huddersfield. The Belgian winger has 5 goals and 7 assists this season.

Conor Roberts has been in great form for Swansea this season. The right midfielder has 3 goals and 5 assists. Roberts is City’s most consistent performer, with an AMR of 7.20.


Huddersfield : 5 / 2

Draw : 11 / 10

Swansea : 11 / 5
