Watford v Newcastle United live stream, Saturday 25 September, 3pm BST
Newcastle will be looking for their first win of the Premier League season when they take on Watford on Saturday afternoon.
Newcastle will be unable to call upon the services of Paul Dummett, Jonjo Shelvey, Martin Dubravka, Callum Wilson and Freddie Woodman. Allan Saint-Maximin will once again be relied upon to provide thrust and invention in the final third, with Joe Willock looking to break into the box from midfield.
The scores have finished level in two of the Magpies’ five matches so far, including in an entertaining 1-1 draw with Leeds last time out. The Whites took the lead at St James’ Park through Raphinha, but Newcastle battled back and levelled the score via Allan Saint-Maximin. It was an open, end-to-end encounter that was not necessarily in keeping with Newcastle’s usual type of performance under Steve Bruce.
The former Sunderland boss has yet to win over the supporters of Newcastle, and defeat here would see the pressure build. Bruce appears to retain the backing of Mike Ashley for now, but that could change if Newcastle spend a significant period of time in the relegation zone. Ashley is looking to sell the club, and he will find that harder to do if Newcastle drop out of the Premier League.
Watford pulled clear of the bottom three last weekend thanks to a 3-1 win at Norwich. It was an important victory for Xisco Munoz, who will know better than anyone that his employers are never shy in pulling the trigger on a manager. Watford have six points to their name so far, having also beaten Aston Villa on the opening weekend of the campaign.
The Hornets will assess Joao Pedro in the run-up to the game, but Kiko Femenia has been passed fit to feature. Daniel Bachmann is still nursing a knee injury, so Ben Foster could continue between the sticks.
Newcastle will be unable to call upon the services of Joe Willock, Jamaal Lascelles, Paul Dummett, Jonjo Shelvey, Martin Dubravka, Callum Wilson and Freddie Woodman. Saint-Maximin will once again be relied upon to provide thrust and invention in the final third.

Use a VPN to watch Premier league football from outside your country
If you’re out of the country for a round of Premier League fixtures, then annoyingly your domestic on-demand services won’t work – the broadcaster knows where you are because of your IP address (boo!). You'll be blocked from watching it, which is not ideal if you’ve paid up for a subscription and still want to catch Steve Bruce’s extra-red face without resorting to illegal feeds you’ve found on Reddit.
But assistance is on hand. To get around that, all you have to do is get a Virtual Private Network (VPN), assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and t'internet, meaning the service can’t work out where you are and won't automatically block the service you've paid for. All the info going between is entirely encrypted – and that's a result.
There are plenty of good-value options out there, including:
