Expectations will be high at Vicarage Road as the Hornets look to bounce back from what was a disappointing campaign last term

Watford will be hoping to improve significantly on their performance last season as they head into the 2018-19 campaign.

The Hornets made an impressive start to the league last term, but suffered from a severe decline in form and finished the season in 14th place, marginally ahead of those in the drop zone.

There have been plenty of changes during the off season and manager Javi Gracia will be expected to deliver better results.

Goal brings you everything you need to know about the Hornets' season ahead, including squad numbers, transfer business and their complete Premier League schedule.

Watford 2018-19 transfer activity

Perhaps the biggest transfer involving Watford during the transfer window was a departure, with Richarlison leaving for Everton in a £40 million deal.

Mauro Zarate and Nordin Amrabat have also left Vicarage Road and Gracia's recruits have been of the frugal variety.

Gerard Deulofeu has joined permanently from Barcelona after spending last season on loan at the club, while Marc Navarro arrived from Espanyol.

Adam Masina signed from Bologna and Ben Foster moved from relegated West Brom.
