Burnley vs Watford Preview and Livestream

The Clarets are in a relegation battle already and so are Watford. This is a classic relegation 6-pointer at Turf Moor. Sean Dyche’s men have not looked good this season. Signing Maxwel Cornet was a good call but it can’t make up for the average players scattered around the pitch for them. They really need to get results, and get them fast. Watford are in the same boat.

A few positive results here and there still hasn’t seen them escape the clutches of a relegation dogfight. While Burnley at least managed a big draw against West Ham United in their last game, Watford stumbled to an embarrassing defeat to fellow newboys, Brentford. Both teams were relegated in the 2019/20 season but Burnley managed two wins in their head-to-head league clash then, scoring 4 in total and conceding none.

The Clarets could be without Phil Bardsley who has a muscle injury, just like striker Ashley Barnes. Dale Stephens and Connor Roberts are still recovering from Covid-19 while Ben Mee nurses a shoulder issue. Maxwel Cornet is a doubt with a knock but could be back in time to start this game for Sean Dyche’s side.

Burnley vs Watford Prediction

We believe both sides are evenly matched, from their team sheets to their style and tactics, there is no separating them on the field. Both teams would be in a relegation battle but Burnley have been here for a while and know how to eke out results when it matters. This would be one of those times for them as we believe they can secure a 1-0 win at home against Watford.
