Wolves have played Watford 44 times in the league, with the first game being played all the way back in 1912 on the 13th January, away from home. In that game, Wolves got a 0-0 draw in the FA Cup. In the replay at home, on the 24th January 1912, Wolves ran away with an emphatic 10-0 victory over the Hornets!
Wolves would not play Watford again until 1980, when on the 16th February they lost 3-0 at Molineux.
The record for Wolves against Watford is 13 wins, 18 draws and 13 loses – so using history as a marker the game could really be anyones.
The first game played in the month of October was on the 21st October 1995 in what was then Division 1. This game was played away from home and ended in a 1-1 draw.
Our most recent win against the hornets was a 1-0 win at Vicarage Road where Nouha Dicko scored the winner. You can see highlights of this game below.
You have to believe that Wolves have it in them to beat Watford. The Hornets have had a good start to the season, sitting in 9th with 4 wins, 1 draw and 3 losses. Wolves are currently in 7th in the league table, with 4 wins 3 draws and 1 loss.
Both teams have had similar difficulty fixtures so far, and Wolves have denied both Manchester sides so far. You would expect Nuno to start the same starting line up. Jota may possibly get dropped, but Nuno has started Jota in nearly every game since becoming Manager, so he may get a few more chances to settle in to the Premier League before getting dropped. With both Cavaleiro and Traore ready to come in, we look increasingly dangerous going forward, and as always I expect us to be solid at the back.
With all respect to the Hornets, as good as Deeney is, there is nobody that really worries me in their starting 11, compared to what Wolves have already played against.
For this reason, I would predict a win for Wolves. Wolves 2-0 Watford
