In the UEFA Nations League England have been drawn with Spain who they play at Wembley on Saturday and Croatia and those opponents will bring back some unhappy memories of the World Cup. As the Premier League takes a week off the surprise package, WATFORD, are 50/1 with Ladbrokes for a top-four finish. Could Watford be the Leicester City of the 2018/19 season? Elton John would be singing from the chandeliers if his beloved team qualify for the Champions League.
