Watford Preview – Will Hornets follow up on their first win of the season and pull closer to safety?

It’s been a long time coming for Watford but they managed to pick up their first Premier League win of the season at the 12th time of asking. The 2-0 victory away to Norwich seen them not only demote that rival to bottom spot in their place but also overtake Southampton by virtue of a better goal difference. it shows that, despite going within a win in 11 games, how close it is at the bottom of the table. The Hornets will now have their sights set on chasing down the teams above them with Aston Villa sitting three points above them. Those four look to be the main candidates for the bottom three at this early stage of the season but there is a huge amount of football to be played.

Having made a managerial switch so early in the season Watford will now be looking to sustain their recent improvement and ensure it’s not one step forward and a couple back. The signs are definitely more positive as in addition to that win, Qique Sanchez Flores men have now went five games with just one loss. That came at home to Chelsea in a 2-1 defeat.

Burnley Preview – Can Burnley end their away day blues and pick up their first win on the road this season?

There would not have been any panicking but Sean Dyche there would have been some relief as his side seen off West Ham aside a fortnight ago and end a run of three straight defeats in the league. The Clarets had lost only two of their first eight matches before losing away to Leicester, at home to Chelsea and being thumped at Brammall Lane by Sheffield United. With the international break looming it was all about getting the three points which they duly did. And the manner of the performance in the 3-0 win at Turf Moor would have been even more pleasing for Dyche.

That win pulls Burnley back into the top half where they sit on 15 points after a dozen games. It’s already unlikely with what we know of this team that they are going to be remotely troubled by relegation fears. The challenge for Dyche and his players is to try and maintain a top half finish and perhaps a prolonged run in the FA Cup.

Watford vs Burnley Betting Advice

There’s an argument to be made that Watford did not want the international break to come when winning their first game of the season. That two weeks could disrupt their momentum but they know playing at home the expectation is again to pick up another three points. Burnley are arguably a favourable opponent in that regard considering they are yet to win away from home. For the Hornets, they will hope to become more clinical in front of goal with only four strikes at Vicarage Road all season.
Burnley have found the net in all bar one of their away games in the league this season. That came in the defeat came against Sheffield United. They are also yet to keep a clean sheet, however. That will give Watford confidence. Chance creation has not been a problem for the hosts, it’s converting them. With six of the last seven meetings between the sides at Vicarage Road with both teams scoring, it looks the a good opportunity to extend that trend.
