EPL: Burnley vs Watford

Burnley vs Watford is an offset match of the English Premier League/Premier League 2021/22. This competition took place at Turf Moore Stadium.

Failure with a score of 0-3 against Norwich City became “the last straw” that made the Watford Club’s Board of Directors exhausted their faith in coach Claudio Ranieri. The former ‘captain’ of Leicester club has been terminated early after the defeat two weeks ago.

After ‘killing’ Mr. Ranieri, the Watford Club Board of Directors appointed Roy Hodgson as head coach. The contract between the former England ‘captain’ and Watford is only valid until the end of the 2021/22 season.

This means that Mr. Hodsgon becomes the real ‘fire fighting’ option. The management of Watford Club hopes that the 74-year-old coach’s coaching experience in the English Premier League will help the Vicarage Road home team successfully stay in the relegation zone.

It is not difficult to imagine Watford’s play in the match against Burnley in particular and the rest of the 2021/22 season in general. That playstyle promises to be similar to Crystal Palace last season: defend proactively with the majority before waiting for opportunities from high-speed ball deployment situations.

However, Watford does not have enough ‘material’ to operate like Crystal Palace. Watford lacks a player possessing the speed and technique of Wilfried Zaha. Ismaila Sarr could take on the same role but the 23-year-old Senegal international is attending AFCON 2022.
