Match Preview

Burnley have just a three-day backup from their successful Europa League qualifier and will be eager to get their first Premier League (PL) goal of the season against Watford.
‘The Clarets’ (BUR) ground out a bore draw with Southampton last week, and likely won’t be more comfortable at home – incredibly, their away PL record was better than their home record last season!
Watford were too good for Brighton last week thanks to a Roberto Pereyra double. They controlled the game, not allowing a fairly toothless Brighton any shots on target.
They are a different side away from Vicarage Road, though – they managed to take just 14 points (W4, D2, L13) on the road in 2017/18.
Burnley won both PL clashes with Watford last season – 1-0 at home and 2-1 away. Watford in fact have not won any of their last ten trips to Burnley (D4, L6).
Players to watch: Jack Cork ended a long goalscoring drought of over four hours for the Clarets on Thursday night. He netted the winner in Burnley’s last clash with Watford.
Pereyra has scored five goals in his last seven games, albeit all at home. Worth noting that he also scored the last time these two sides faced off.
Stat attack: Burnley haven’t registered a win in their last three home matches. In 2017/18, Burnley scored 69% of their goals in the second-half.
Burnley have not conceded in their last three home fixtures vs Watford (all comps).
‘The Hornets’ (WAT) have lost their last six away fixtures, and haven’t won in 12.
Watford also haven’t scored in their last eight away fixtures and have conceded in their last six.
