Troy Deeney may have again been overlooked for the England squad but he will be aiming to continue his good scoring form against Crystal Palace tomorrow. And if the Watford skipper can find the back of the net for the sixth time in seven Premier League matches he will achieve yet another Hornets scoring landmark.
The 28-year-old has netted in the club’s last three matches against the Eagles, reaching his century for the club with a penalty in the 1-1 draw on Boxing Day at Vicarage Road.
If the striker extend that sequence to a fourth game he will take his tally into double figures for the sixth consecutive season, a feat that has not been achieved by a Watford player since John Barnes in 1987.
Deeney’s next goal will be his 106th in total for the Hornets and move him into fourth place on his own and above Cliff Holton on the club’s all-time scorers’ list.
