Watford FC is currently engaged in the FA Cup (semi-final - final match). On the contrary, the selection was eliminated in the group stage of the Premier League despite 37% in successful matches and eleventh place and in the cupround against Tottenham Hotspur of the EFL Cup. A total of 52 goals were scored, 59 goals conceded and 14 of 38 matches successfully completed this season. The British football team is currently being coached by the Spaniard Javi Gracia. The home stadium of the football eleven, the Vicarage Road in Watford, offers enough space for up to 21400 people. Watford FC managed to pick up three wins in the last ten minutes of play. Quite impressive was the quarter-final of the FA Cup against Crystal Palace on 16 March 2019, in which it stood 1:1 until the 83kg heavy jersey number 18 Andre Gray scored a direct goal in minute 80.
In the current season, 25 professional footballers have made it into the starting eleven. These include midfielder Nathaniel Chalobah, left-back Jose Holebas, left-back Roberto Pereyra, right-back Kiko Femenia and Daryl Janmaat, striker Troy Deeney and goalkeeper Ben Foster. The highest superiority of the first half of three goals was achieved in the 33rd group stage Premier League match against Fulham FC. In the end Watford FC won 4 to 1. After Watford FC's 24-year-old Brit Will Hughes scored from 23m on 19 August 2018 in the Premier League's second group-phase match against Burnley FC, even the fans of the opponents were stunned. In the home arena, Manchester United proved to be the most difficult opponent, with two successes and 23 defeats achieved by Watford FC.
In the first half, selection tends to lag behind. In away matches, the team prefers to play Chelsea FC, as that is where the most triumphs took place. Regarding the mass the average of Watford FC is rather slim with 79 kg, which was mainly influenced by the 194cm jersey number 05 Sebastian Prodl and the Spanish jersey number 21 Kiko Femenia. The distance between Watford FC's biggest (Sebastian Prodl and Pontus Dahlberg) and smallest (Tom Cleverley) pro is an impressive 19 centimetres, while the average is 185 cm. Unfortunately, on 30.01.2019, the club lost the 24th Premier League group stage game against Tottenham Hotspur shortly before the final whistle with two goals from Heung Min Son and Fernando Llorente in minutes 87 and 80. This happened again in the current season against Arsenal FC.
Most recently, the team tried the 4-2-2-2 formation against West Ham United in the Premier League, which resulted in a defeat (1:4). Despite lagging behind in the first half, they managed to win two such games against Crystal Palace and Wolverhampton Wanderers in the current season. After an inferior three full goals, the highest of the current season, against Chelsea FC in the 37th group stage match of the Premier League, a failure was assumed anyway. In the end the match ended 0 - 3. Watford FC were not as successful against Chelsea FC (19/6/8) as they were against every opponent. The statistically most violent opponent is Manchester City with no victory, four draws and 23 defeats on the part of Watford FC.
The team has lost a game in the current season (against Tottenham Hotspur) despite advantage in the first half. The majority of kickers prefer the right foot. With more than seven orders, Watford FC has started in the games of the current season (4-5-1, 4-3-3, 4-4-2, 4-2-3-1, 4-4-1-1, 4-2-2-2, 4-3-1-2, 3-5-2). The most frequent substitutes are goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes, defenders Adrian Mariappa, Adam Masina and Christian Kabasele, midfielder Ken Sema and striker Domingos Quina. The 177cm tall right foot Gerard Deulofeu has scored the latest WAT goal of the current season 23 minutes before final whistle against Wolverhampton Wanderers. The Watford FC goalkeepers have done an impressive job in securing opposing goal attempts.
The club has the best result (11/1/7) with the 4-2-2-2 formation. The last success of the football team against Chelsea FC was one year and 3 months ago. Meanwhile, both clubs met three more times. The last meeting took place on 26 December 2018. In 33 games over the last 19 years, the team's score against Chelsea FC is 41. Although the majority of professional footballers are around 28 years old, the 191 cm tall right foot of Heurelho Gomes has had the greatest influence. Only 37% of the 11 goal attempts per match (on average) finally hit the square. In the Premier League's sixth group stage match against Fulham FC, 83kg right-foot Andre Gray scored the fastest WAT goal of the current season after just 94 seconds with a pass from Will Hughes.
