Our prediction for this Championship match:
All eyes will be on Turf Moor when Burnley and Watford face each other in the Championship derby on Tuesday evening. The Clarets are on a ten-game winning run in the league, but boss Vincent Kompany must warn his men against complacency. A man to watch in the home team will be Nathan Tella, who scored a hat-trick against Preston, while all Taylor Harwood-Bellis, Manuel Benson, and Jay Rodriguez remain in the recovery room. January signing Michael Obafemi is pushing for a start.
The Hornets, on the other hand, aim to put an end to their four-game winless run, but they will have a mountain to climb in the midweek clash. Given Burnley’s brilliant winning run, we do not believe that the visitors are capable of grabbing something from the match. All Imran Souza, Joao Pedro, Christian Kabasele, and Tom Cleverley are back to contention, speaking of the away side.
