Watford will look to follow up their morale-boosting win over Manchester United when they travel to Sheffield United on Boxing Day.
The Hornets still sit bottom of the Premier League table but have moved to within three points of 18th-placed Aston Villa and just six from safety.
Keeping the winning feeling going against Sheffield Utd will be anything but an easy task, though, with the Blades currently basking if fifth-place in the table after a run of three consecutive victories.
Can Watford take another step toward safety or will Sheffield Utd continue to threaten the top-four places?

Ones to watch
Sheffield Utd: John Fleck
To pick just one Sheffield Utd player to have impressed this season is an almost impossible task but if you had to, John Fleck would certainly place high on the list.
The Scotland international has shown the perfect blend of energy, robustness and creativity and is key to keeping that Blades midfield ticking over.
Key stat: John Fleck has created more chances (25) than any other Sheffield Utd player in the Premier League this season.
Watford: Troy Deeney
Troy Deeney finally got back among the goals against Manchester Utd, firing home from the spot as the Hornets ran out 2-0 winners.
That should give the 31-year-old a real confidence boost – one Watford need to take full advantage of if they’re to make a fist of this survival fight.
Key stat: Troy Deeney has won more aerial duels (41) than any other Watford player this season.
