Our match prediction:
Turf Moor will host the match between Burnley and Watford. The Clarets aim to bounce back from a heavy 3-0 loss to title holders Leicester City, while the Hornets want to build on a thrilling 3-1 win over star-studded Manchester United. Watford have been scoring goals for fun in the Premier League of late and it is more than obvious that Walter Mazzarri is doing a great job with the Vicarage Road Stadium outfit. Burnley do not seem to be competitive at this level and despite the fact that they defeated Liverpool in front of home fans earlier this season, we predict that the visitors are going to pick up all three points from Monday’s football match. It has to be noted that Burnley recorded their last win over Watford in 2011 when the two teams met in the Championship, but the Hornets were not as strong back then as they are nowadays.
