Burnley vs Watford Preview and Livestream

Burnley kicked off the new year in a severely disappointing fashion, with two bitter defeats devoid of any flair in their performance. Yes, postponed fixtures have cost them a higher place in the league standings than they presently are, but the fact that their last win in the league came in October shows just how much work Sean Dyche has on his hand. Things have not gone well for Burnley football club thus far and with Chris Wood reportedly set to leave as well, they need to urgently find a replacement for his goals to have any hope of staying up this campaign.

Burnley’s opponents this week, Watford, are in a similar dire state themselves. An improvement in the level of performance since Claudio Ranieri took charge has not coincided with a surge in form unfortunately. The Hornets desperately need to pull away from the relegation zone to which they are far too close for comfort at the moment.

Burnley vs Watford Prediction

The Clarets have looked increasingly poor in recent matches, despite having lost half of their first team players to either COVID-19 or injuries. Watford too are not in the best form and need points just as desperately. As such, this could be a clash for either side to push on towards safety. We thus predict Watford to come out on top and pull further clear of the relegation zone owing to a 2-1 victory in this match.
