Stoke vs Watford Lineups, Match Preview, and Team Information

Stoke

Ryan Mmaee is Stoke's biggest signing this summer, the center-forward arrived from the Hungarian champions Ferencvaros. Stoke has a vision of contending for promotion, but it seems that the team lacks proper depth for the ultimate goal. Tyrese Campbell is unavailable for the match due to an injury problem.

Potential lineup: Travers, Hoever, Rose, Wilmot, Stevens, Pearson, Laurent, Chiquinho, Johnson, Cunha Vidigal, Mmaee.

Watford

The fans are nervous after Watford management sold two of its most valuable players this summer. Joao Pedro joined Brighton while Ismaila Sarr was transferred to Marseille. On the other hand, there weren't many relevant arrivals to the team.

Potential lineup: Bachmann, Morris, Hoedt, Porteous, Andrews, Dele-Bashiru, Sierralta, Louza, Matheus Martins, Bayo, Sema.

Player to Watch: Matheus Martins

Watford sold some important players this summer and with those departures, there will be a chance for players who didn't feature very often. Here comes Matheus Martins, the 20-year-old Brazilian prodigy who was signed by Watford in January to an 18-month loan deal with Udinese. Martins didn't play much in the first six months, but he has been given a relevant role within the team to start this season.

Martins got his first goal for the club as he started both league matches this term. It is a curious case for the Brazilian wing player who was bought by Udinese from Fluminense on January 2nd and then was loaned out to Watford a day later. However, it is an assumption that the Italian side has plans for Martins and he is expected to return upon his loan deal expiration date at the end of the current campaign.
