Graham Potter was the surprise appointment at Brighton & Hove Albion after Chris Hughton was given a painting of a spitfire, with the former Swansea manager having previously impressed at Ostersund and is now looking to grab his Premier League opportunity with both hands.

Brighton have been recruiting fairly heavily this summer, with Leandro Trossard, Adam Webster and Neal Maupay among the players who have arrived and we’re expecting them all to play a key part in proceedings.

They are surely players that would get into the Watford first team and it’s been noticeable that the Hornets haven’t really recruited anyone of note at the time of writing.

Javi Gracia seems to think that his existing squad are good enough to compete fairly favourably for the 2019/20 season, although Craig Dawson is the only notable arrival and that could prove to be problematic.

At the odds, we’re reluctant to get with Watford to win this match and instead think that both teams can find the net, with Potter deploying tactics that are likely to see the visitors attack at will at Vicarage Road.
