Ones to watch

Emmanuel Dennis (Watford)

The Hornets are the fourth-lowest scoring team in the Premier League with just 29 goals to their name, but the Nigerian has accounted for nearly a third of them, finding the back of the net nine times, proving to be their only consistent scoring threat on the season.

Daniel James (Leeds United)

The former Manchester United youngster continues to be employed in a lone striker role in the absence of Bamford and will need to continue his solid play if the Whites are to continue their recent good form.

Previous meetings

In October, Leeds ran out 1-0 winners at home to pick up their first victory of the season after a six-match winless run to begin their campaign.

Stuart Dallas forced an early save out of Hornets goalkeeper Ben Foster, who also denied Daniel James on the rebound.

James then fired well over after being set up by Mateusz Klich and in the second half, blazed high into the stands after being left unmarked at the edge of the box.

Diego Llorente, back from a hamstring injury, took advantage of a corner bouncing off of Watford's Juraj Kucka to poke home and give the Whites all three points.
