Watford vs Brighton: What time does Premier League match kick off and what TV channel is it on?

Premier League newcomers Brighton have had a rude awakening in their first two league games this season but will look to get their first win when they head to Watford on Saturday.

But Watford will prove a tough team to beat after starting their new campaign with a 3-3 draw against Liverpool and a 2-0 road win against Bournemouth.

The depth of Marco Silva’s attack is highlighted by the fact that all five of the Hornets’ goals this season have come from different players – Stefano Okaka, Abdoulaye Doucoure, Miguel Britos, Richarlison and Etienne Capoue.

The Seagulls will have to also watch out for striker Andre Gray who has scored in each of four previous league appearance against Brighton.

Brighton have failed to score yet in their two league losses, but they will look to end their scoring drought and avoid becoming the 12th team in the league’s history to open three games with out a goal.

When is Watford vs Brighton?

The Premier League clash will take place at Vicarage Road on Saturday August 26.

The game will kick off at 3:00pm.
