Stoke are winless in last 5 games in the Premier League, anyway it's not all doom and gloom for The Potters. They had tough calendar lately, with 3 away fixtures against title contenders (Arsenal, Liverpool, Chelsea). A few days ago they gave a good account on themselves at Stamford Bridge despite the 2:4 loss. Walters, Muniesa, Cameron, Burland, Ireland are unavailable, but on the other hand Arnautovic returns to match squad. Watford have poor results lately and their level of play is also pretty low. On 1st January they're completely outplayed at home by Tottenham (1:4). One of the reasons are injuries as Success, Janmaat, Pereyra, Okaka, Mariappa, Behrami, Watson, Dja Djedje, Zuniga are all sidelined, whereas Amrabat remains doubtful. It should be also noted that Watford have only 2 days to prepare for this game and manager Mazzarri has not much options for rotations because of absences. Stoke have 1 more day to prepare and it seems that hosts should get all 3 points.
