Over two thirds of fans who voted in our online poll believe that Watford will retain their Premiership status.
The Golden Boys will be hoping to defy convention as 19 of the 41 teams promoted to the Premier League have been relegated the following season.
However, four promoted clubs have finished in the top five in their first season in the Premier League. These are Blackburn Rovers (1993), Newcastle United (1994), Nottingham Forest (1995) and Ipswich Town (2001).
Watford are only the sixth club in the 20 year history of the play-offs to finish third and gain promotion via the play-offs. Eight play-off winners have been relegated in the first season in the top-flight, yet only two of these have been in the past six seasons.
