Burnley need to win more often
Burnley are not even in the top 10 of the APL in terms of their squad and financial situation, but the club manages to stay afloat. Currently, they sit 18th in the table, just two points behind their arch-rivals and with a game to spare. In 15 games, the club have only one win, but there have been eight draws. Much rests on the head coach, but Sean Dyche is not all-powerful. In the last matchday, Burnley were drawn at home against West Ham, 0-0. Four players will be out due to injuries and quarantine.
Hornets have a disappointing start
Watford have to fight for survival this season, as they sit only 17th in the league, only two points clear of the relegation zone. “The Hornets approach this meeting on a streak of four straight defeats. In the last round, the team lost on the road to Brentford 1-2, a disappointing defeat as they led for most of the game but conceded in the 84th and 90+6 minutes. Even despite the defeat, the team didn’t look too bad in terms of play. Seven players will miss the encounter through injury.
The last time the opponents crossed paths was the season before last, when Burnley managed to win twice – 3-0 away and 1-0 at home.
A crucial battle between two direct rivals for survival, where taking three points will be especially valuable. Burnley are seen as slight favourites for the meeting, mainly because of the factor of their arena. It will be a tough game, where chances are vital. We think the home side’s option to win with a zero goal margin looks good here.
