Watford travel to Preston North End this evening looking to build on their emphatic win over Bristol City in their last match.

A change in formation paid dividends against the Robins, and it's very likely Xisco Munoz will stick with it, after it proved so successful on Saturday.

Here's how I think they will line up tonight.

Formation: 4-3-3

GK: Daniel Bachmann

The keeper had nothing to do on Saturday and will start again this evening.

RB: Kiko Femenia

Linked up nicely with Sarr down the right and gave the team a boost on his return. Should do the same again today.

CB: Francisco Sierralta

The Chilean should be relatively fresh after he was more or less untested by the Bristol City players. He'll continue his run of games tonight.

CB: William Troost-Ekong

Continues to be reliable at the back and, like his partner Sierralta, had a fairly relaxed afternoon on Saturday so shouldn't be hampered by fatigue.

LB: Adam Masina

Made some great overlapping runs and worked well with Sema. He'll be hoping to do the same again tonight.

CM: Will Hughes

Completely changed the dynamic having him at the base of the midfield three. He's the key that unlocked the team's creativity and has to start there again tonight.

CM: Tom Cleverley

Continues to be reliable and should get the nod again at Preston after an impressive captain's performance at the weekend.

CM: Nathaniel Chalobah

Was substituted at half time at the weekend due to his yellow card, With Munoz not wanting to lose him to suspension. Dan Gosling did fit in well for the second half, but I think Chalobah did enough in the first to keep his place.

LW: Ken Sema

Scored twice last time out, will be hoping to build on that again tonight.

RW: Ismaila Sarr

Man of the match against Bristol City and directly played a part in five of the six goals. Has to be first name on the team sheet.

ST: Joao Pedro

Did everything but score on Saturday and will be looking to go one better this evening. Munoz has rotated Pedro and Andre Gray in recent weeks, but in my opinion, Pedro's performance at the weekend was good enough to see him keep his place.
