Can Sheffield United take advantage of Watford's troubles? Opta gives their statistical verdict.

"Sheffield United are unbeaten away from home in the Premier League this season (W1 D2) – they last remained unbeaten in their opening four games on the road in any division in 2012-13, and in the top-flight in 1972-73."

They are [1.8] in the Double Chance market.

Watford and Sheffield United have only two previous Premier League meetings, with the Blades winning both matches 1-0 in 2006-07. A 1-0 win for Sheffield United is [12.5].

Sheffield United last faced Watford in a league match in March 2011 in the Championship, losing 3-0 at Vicarage Road under Micky Adams. A Watford win is [2.22].

Watford are winless in their seven Premier League games this season, their longest run without a victory from the start of a campaign in any division since 2006-07 (10 in the Premier League). The draw is [3.5].

Sheffield United are looking to secure back-to-back Premier League away victories for the fourth time, doing so once in each of their three previous campaigns in the competition (May 1993, April 1994, December 2006). The last occasion included a victory at Watford. A Sheffield United win is [3.7].

Watford have conceded at least once in each of their last 19 Premier League games, the longest current run without a clean sheet in the competition. Meanwhile, only Crystal Palace in 2017-18 (-17) have had a worse goal difference after seven Premier League matches than the Hornets' -16 this term. Sheffield United are [6.0] to win to nil.

Watford have conceded a league-high four goals in the opening 10 minutes of Premier League games this season - as many as they conceded in the same timeframe in the whole of 2018-19. Sheffield United are [4.3] to be winning at half-time.

Sheffield United are unbeaten away from home in the Premier League this season (W1 D2) - they last remained unbeaten in their opening four games on the road in any division in 2012-13, and in the top-flight in 1972-73. They are [1.8] in the Double Chance market.

All seven of Sheffield United's Premier League goals this season have been scored by different players, including benefitting from a joint-high two own goals. Over 2.5 goals is [2.0].

Roberto Pereyra (2) is the only player to score more than once for the Hornets in all competitions this season. Pereyra is [6.0] to score.

Sheffield United's Leon Clarke made his Premier League debut last time out against Liverpool. If he scores, he'd be the oldest player to score his first goal in the competition (34y 237d on the day of this game) since Zlatan Ibrahimovic in August 2016 (34y 315d). Clarke is [4.1] to find the net.
