Watford vs Burnley
England – Premier League
Date: Saturday, 23 November 2019
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Vicarage Road (Watford).

Both teams put an end to their respective dismal runs the previous match-day. However, it deserves mentioning that the woes of Watford have been going on since the start of the season, whereas that of their counterparts is comparatively recent. Taking into account the fact that Watford is one of the worst of the lot in the competition, Burnley should manage to wage through this challenge without incident.

Watford vs Burnley Prediction

Burnley locked horns with West Ham the previous match-day, with the former enjoying the home advantage. Ashley Barnes found the back of the net in the 11th minute to put the home team ahead, and later they added one more just before half time. Later, the visiting contingent was forced to concede once again to completely take them out of the equation.

Watford, once for a change, registered a win in a PL game, the previous game week. They had been on the road and still did not get worked up about that. Against new addition to the competition, Norwich, the visitors recorded a 0-2 victory, and that too with a fewer man on the pitch.

In spite of this victory though, do understand that Watford is easily one of the worst, if not, the worst team in the competition this season. They have recorded a single win so far in the campaign, the least of all 20 squads in contention, and have scored the least amongst the lot as well. In fact, the cavalry has so far scored a total of just eight goals, and remain the only unit yet to touch double digits.

On the other hand, the recent struggles of Burnley could be attributed to them having been given a tough schedule to wade through, and to raise more hope, they have performed well against this opposition in prior h2h clashes as well.

Finally, it may be true that Watford recorded a win the last match-day, but fact remains that it was against the hugely off-performing, newly-added, Norwich.

Taking this information under purview, expect Burnley to have a good game this weekend.
