Leeds are still seeking their first victory of the Premier League season with three draws and three defeats from their opening six. They will be looking to bounce back from defeat last time out as an injury-hit side were unlucky to lose 2-1 at home to West Ham despite having opened the scoring through Raphina. At Elland Road, the Yorkshire outfit have lost two and drawn one and won just three of their last ten in the league.

Watford will be happy with how they have begun life back in the top-flight with two victories, a draw and three defeats from their first six. They were involved in an open game against Newcastle last time out that somehow only ended 1-1 with Ismaila Sarr getting their goal. Away from Vicarage Road, the Hornets have lost eight of their last nine but that win did come against Norwich on their last road trip.

Leeds vs Watford: Match Stats

Only Norwich (16) have conceded more goals than the (14) Leeds and backing Watford to go over 1.5 goals appeals here. The Hornets grabbed three against Norwich and three against Villa and were unlucky not to score more against Newcastle. United meanwhile have conceded seven goals from their first three home fixtures and are looking vulnerable to pace at the back.

Ismaila Sarr has been excellent since his return to the Premier League and will fancy his chances against an injury-hit Leeds defence. The Hornets man already has four goals to his name this campaign so it is a surprise to see the value available on him.

These sides have not met since the FA Cup in 2016 and in the league the 2014/15 Championship season so it is hard to read too much into the head-to-head record.
