Burnley vs Watford in the Premier League on Feb 5. 2022 + Odds & Prediction

Burnley vs Watford in the Premier League on Feb 5. 2022 + Odds & Prediction

Although there is just one Premier League fixture this weekend, it is arguably one of the most important of the season so far and with Burnley playing host to Watford in a relegation six-pointer, it will be all to play for at Turf Moor.

Especially as Watford have once again unveiled a new manager and with Roy Hodgson picking up from Claudo Ranieri, the former England boss will be tasked with keeping the Hornets in the division.

1-1 Draw

As much as this is a must win game, you also get the feeling that it is also a do not lose and with Roy Hodgson set to take the Watford reins for the first time, he will not want to start his tenure with a defeat.

Especially as Hodgson is known to be a more defensively minded manager and if he is to keep Watford in the Premier League, he will need to stop the leaks that have often sprung this season.

At the same time, the Hornets are good for a goal and with Burnley having a home advantage, it may be a case of honours even. Which means backing the 1-1 draw at odds of 6/1 with bet365, looks like being a rather shrewd move before the weekend.

Burnley Form, squad news, opinion

Much has been made in recent times of Burnley’s games in hand and if they can pick up points during these encounters, then their plight at the bottom of the Premier League table will be eased.

While this Saturday does present one of those very games in question and if Burnley are to kickstart their quest for safety, then earning a home win over Watford will swing the survival pendulum in their favour.

However, this is a Burnley side that no longer has the ability to call upon Chris Wood and with the New Zealand international now moving on to Newcastle, manager Sean Dyche will have to plug a gap up top.

A gap that could well be filled by Wout Weghorst and with a £12m deal now over the line, Dyche will hope that the Dutch forward can open his Burnley goal account as early as this Saturday afternoon.

Going into this Saturday, the Clarets are lying four points from safety and although a win would still see them in the bottom three at the final whistle, it will at least keep the Turf Moor outfit in the hunt for survival.

In terms of injuries and suspensions going into the visit of Watford, Burnley have no injuries to report at the time of writing and will also be in a position to start Maxwell Cornet once again, as the former Lyon player returns from AFCON duty.

Watford Form, squad news, opinion

When Roy Hodgson left Crystal Palace at the end of last season, many felt that the former England manager would walk off into the sunset and take on a well-earned retirement from football.

However, the lure of the Premier League is an incredibly strong one and with Watford once again having a vacancy at Vicarage Road, they quickly set off a distress flare in the direction of the 74-year-old.

One that sees Hodgson become Watford’s third manager of this Premier League campaign and although that may seem like a large number, one must remember that the Hornets operate slightly differently to everyone else.

Because short-term is very much the order of the day and if the former Crystal Palace boss fails to keep his new employers in the Premier League, he, like a litany of managers before him, will then be shown the exit door.

At the same time, if the grandfather of Premier League management can keep Watford in the division, he will undoubtedly be lauded as a hero and his march to hero status will begin this Saturday at Burnley.

In terms of injuries and suspensions for the trip to Burnley, Watford will be able to recall the trio of William Troost-Ekong, Adam Masina from AFCON duty but they are still without Ismalia Sarr who has been out since November.

History

As far as history is concerned, their battles have been consigned to their lower levels of English football and only as recently as 2016, did the two clubs first meet within the confines of the Premier League.

In terms of their overall head-to-head record, Burnley have won on 21 occasions, Watford 13 and there have been 10 draws

About the Venue

When it comes to Turf Moor, it is one of the more industrial stadiums within the Premier League and although the facilities do not quite match some of the bigger grounds within the division, their fans will certainly not be shy when it comes to cheering them on.

With COVID-19 restrictions being lifted in England, it means there is no longer the need to show a Vaccine Passport before attending the ground. Which means, match tickets are the only item that is required to be produced at the time of writing.

Conclusion

With both Burnley and Watford languishing at the bottom of the Premier League table, Saturday could be a hugely important day within the context of this season’s relegation battle.

Because both the Clarets and the Hornets desperately need three points and although a draw would not be the worst result, it will do little to help their respective fights against relegation. Which means it will likely be a tense affair at Turf Moor.
