Watford vs Newcastle: How to watch, live stream link, start time, odds, pick

Joe Prince-Wright and the guys look ahead to Matchweek 6 of the 2021-22 Premier League season, as Chelsea and Manchester City clash, and Arsenal and Tottenham meet in the North London derby.

If Watford or Newcastle wants to stay in the Premier League next season, they’ll need to win -- not draw -- matches like Saturday’s tilt at Vicarage Road (start time 10am ET online via Peacock Premium).

Well, of course, they’ll have to win a lot of matches and get a healthy amount of draws, but you get the general idea.


Watford, so far, looks far more likely to do that given that Newcastle is yet to collect three points this season. The Hornets beat Aston Villa and Leeds to go with three losses, while Newcastle can only boast draws versus Leeds and Southampton.

Here’s everything you need to know ahead of Watford vs Newcastle.

How about goals, for one thing? Newcastle’s Allan Saint-Maximin and Miguel Almiron will be joined by Watford’s Emmanuel Dennis and Ismaila Sarr -- amongst others -- in producing speed and chances. Should be a better watch than this fixture’s been in recent years. Watford 2-2 Newcastle.
