How to watch Watford vs Southampton in the UK
Free Premier League football? On Sky? Wonders will never cease. Due to the nature of the restart, with fans currently unable to attend games, Sky has agreed to show 25 live games on its free to air Sky Pick channel.
Existing Sky Sports subscribers can still watch on Sky Sports Premier League channel and Sky Sports Main Event. Sky has an interesting strategy here, letting you watch the match with faux crowd noise piped in on Main Event, or without it on Sky Sports Premier League.
Coverage begins at 4.00 pm BST on Sky Pick and Sky Sports Premier League. It commences 15- minutes later on Sky Sports Main Event.
If you’re not a Sky Sports customer, you can tune into Pick on Freeview, Freesat, Virgin Media, or through a Sky box. The Pick channel is also available to watch via the Freeview Play app for iOS and Android, but these are the channel numbers:
Freeview: Channel 11
Freesat: Channel 147
Sky: Channel 159
Virgin Media: Channel 165

Watford vs Southampton match preview
Liverpool might have wrapped up their first Premier League title in 30 years a few weeks early, but the issues at the bottom of the table are unlikely to be settled until the bitter end. Watford are among the 5 or 6 teams desperately scrapping to avoid relegation and this home game with Southampton gives Nigel Pearson’s men a chance to put some distance between themselves and fellow strugglers like Aston Villa, Bournemouth and West Ham.
However, the Saints will be no pushovers, despite some mixed performances since the Project Restart got underway. Danny Ings will once again lead the line, looking to add to his 16 Premier League goals this campaign. Southampton probably need one win to ensure survival in a campaign that saw them lose 9-0 to Leicester back in October that made them odds on favourites for relegation.
