Roy Hodgson has said he will not be tempted to make big changes in Watford's final four matches of the season, despite him admitting "the writing's on the wall" for the club this season.

Anything less than a win will confirm the Hornets' relegation to the Championship today, while three points would in reality be merely prolonging the inevitable.

However, the manager said he is still there to compete rather than experiment.

"These aren't friendlies, are they and that's the type of thing you do in friendlies," said Hodgson. "A lot of what they have been doing hasn't disappointed Ray and myself, we think they've been doing okay.

"So just to leave them out of the team and put someone else in for the sake of it, I don't think that's a good idea either. I think we'd have to be convinced that the person we're putting in is going to do a better job than the one we've taken out. So I don't envisage wholesale changes."

With that in mind, here's how we think Hodgson will set his team up today.

GK: Ben Foster

He will remain first choice shot stopper for this afternoon.

RB: Kiko Femenia

I don't see Hodgson bringing Jeremy Ngakia back again at this stage.

CB: Christian Kabasele

Has made himself a first choice centre back since his return.

CB: Samir

Since his arrival, he hasn't consistently made a huge amount of mistakes. Will be playing today, unless injured.

LB: Hassane Kamara

Arguably first name on the team sheet. One of the few positives of this season.

CM: Imran Louza

Another rare source of positivity this season. Should keep his place in the centre.

CM: Moussa Sissoko

The skipper has played almost every minute since his arrival. Will likely leave at the end of the season, but I'd expect him to see it out.

CM: Juraj Kucka

Is arguably the best option of the available midfielders.

RW: Ismaila Sarr

Will need to pull his socks up if he is to get his big money move at the end of the campaign.

LW: Emmanuel Dennis

Another who looks set to depart, but has improved in recent weeks.

ST: Joao Pedro

Hodgson seems to prefer the Brazilian to Joshua King. I'd expect him to play today.
