Rob Edwards’ short but sweet spell as Watford manager came to an abrupt end as he was replaced after just 11 games on Monday. The former Forest Green head coach had picked up 14 points from his opening 10 games in the Championship, leaving the Hornets in 10th place, nine points behind leaders Sheffield United at his time of departure.

The Pozzo family have turned to former West Ham and West Brom manager Slaven Bilic to take the reigns at Vicarage Road and he will be hoping to get off to a winning start against a Stoke side that have picked up just two wins in their last eight Championship matches.

João Pedro was heavily linked with a move away from Watford during the summer, but decided to stay with the club after a transfer to Newcastle collapsed.
