Watford have lost seven of their last eight league matches but are still 10th in the table. However, they are only five points off the bottom three.
Southampton are winless in nine matches and only a superior goal difference over Stoke seperates them from the drop zone.
The Hornets have scored in each of their last six home matches, which should be enough to overcome a Southampton side lacking goals. This may not be a classic.
Newcastle are enjoying a good moment and have to take advantage of it while it lasts. Rafa Benitez's side are unbeaten three games in all competitions and are now two points clear of the bottom three. The relegation battle is tight, as five points seperate 10th to 17th.
Swansea are still last and four points adrift of safety. They surprisingly managed to hold Championship leaders Wolves to a 0-0 draw in the FA Cup third round last time out and that should give Carlos Carvalhal's side some confidence ahead of this long trip.
Swansea have failed to scored in their last two matches against the Magpies, however. That doesn't bode well for the away side as they are hardly in the right shape to change that around. Rafa Benitez's side should aim for three valuable points on Saturday.
