EPL: Burnley vs Watford




Both are direct competitors for the relegation ticket, so the upcoming match between Burnley vs Watford will be extremely tense. There a victory will help Burnley get out of the danger zone, and at the same time push the opponent himself into the quagmire. Of course, in the final position, rookie Watford will make an effort to at least have a exit point.

Burnley has just had a brave 0-0 draw when welcoming West Ham who is in high form at home. The match where Burnley let “Sledgehammer” play completely and fortunately did not have to admit defeat. Got 1 point, but at the same time Burnley extended the series without winning in the Premier League to 5 (draw 4, lose 1). Since the victory at home against Brentford in October, Burnley has not once enjoyed joy. In fact, after 15 rounds, Burnley only won 1, drew 8 and lost 6.

Poor performance only brought teachers and coaches Sean Dyche exactly 11 points and 18th place in the rankings. If it is not possible to improve the performance in the upcoming sprint, the prospect of relegation is very close to Burnley. The home team Turf Moor has a very bad scoring record in the Premier League this season with 14 goals in 15 matches, so on average they have not had 1 goal each game. Even the last 3 appearances Burnley were empty. In the next match, Burnley has a great opportunity to escape the group holding the red light when facing Watford, the opponent is also playing very badly this season.

They got an early goal thanks to striker Emmanuel Dennis, but within the last 10 minutes of the match they let Brentford score 2 consecutive goals and lost 1-2 in the end. It is worth mentioning that it is Watford’s fourth consecutive match in the English Premier League. Quite unlucky for Watford when they continuously face big men like Leicester, Chelsea or even Man City. In the last 4 matches alone, Watford’s defense has conceded 11 times. After 16 rounds in the Premier League this season, Watford won 4, drew 1 and lost 11.

Having only 13 points makes this rookie ranked 17th in the rankings and 2 points more than the relegation group. In a row of the last 3 away matches, Watford all failed to leave. Things will be more difficult for Watford when the last 5 encounters with Burnley they have lost 3 and won only 1. Being just a rookie has just been promoted, it is clear that Watford is showing weakness compared to other opponents. Facing the more experienced and old Burnley in the relegation battle, it is likely that Watford will have to taste the bitter fruit and leave Turf Moor field.
