The (1)3-4-3 formation could be utilised by Watford this weekend following their dramatic 4-1 win over Chelsea on Monday night, starting with a different goalkeeper in Karnezis covering the net, due to Gomes’ back injury. Prödl, Holebas and Mariappa should play as Watford’s central defenders, with Janmaat and Zeegelaar being moved up as the wing-backs out wide. Doucoure and Capoue are expected to be the central midfielders to play against West Ham United this gameweek. In the attacking trio that deconstructed the Chelsea backline, Deulofeu, Deeney and Richarlison feature.
Mariappa – Prödl– Holebas
Janmaat – Doucoure – Capoue – Zeegelaar
Deulofeu – Deeney – Richarlison
