Host commentator

Quite a few tasty games in there… especially that weekend finale at Stamford Bridge.

Four in fact, which in normal circumstances should not be a surprise under Claudio ‘The tinker man’ Ranieri but a couple of those are enforced following the 1-1 draw at Newcastle United.

Keeper Ben Foster is ruled out and is replaced by Daniel Bachmann, while centre-back Craig Cathcart is out with illness and is replaced by Christian Kabasele. Also coming in are Kiko Femina and Tom Cleverley as Jeremy Ngakia and Juraj Kucka depart.

Norwich make just one alteration from the massive 2-1 win over Everton as Tim Krul makes way for Angus Gunn in goal.


… but this is a massive match! in terms of the relegation battle it could either shake things up, or leave the bottom three staring down the barrel.

I’m actually really looking forward to this even if it is between two struggling sides as I welcome you to our live coverage of Watford vs Norwich City. Team news coming next…
