Our prediction for this Premier League match:
Vicarage Road will host Saturday’s relegation six-pointer between Watford and Burnley. The Hornets aim to put an end to their four-game losing run, and they will surely give 100% to recover from a heavy 5-1 loss to Man City. Joao Pedro was rested in the Etihad Stadium defeat, but he is widely expected to start against Burnley. Cucho Hernandez has yet to recover from a hamstring problem, while both Kalu and Sierralta are rated doubtful for the match.
The Clarets, on the other hand, desperately needed a win against Wolverhampton, and they managed to get one thanks to Matej Vydra’s goal. Burnley have been in a much better form of late than Watford, which is probably the main reason why away triumph should be considered. All Gudmundsson, Westwood, and Mee are sidelined with injuries, while Pieters will be assessed ahead of the kick-off.
Highlighted Player (Joao Pedro):
Joao Pedro played for Atletico Mineiro during his youth career and he made no less than 11 appearances for the club at senior level. The Brazilian footballer, who was born on 9 March, 1992 in Ipatinga, signed a deal with Palermo on 30 August, 2010 and he made his debut for the Sicilian outfit in the Serie A on 17 January, 2011.
He came as a substitute to replace Josip Ilicic in a 3-1 defeat to Cagliari. On 29 January, 2011 he joined Vitoria Guimaraes on loan and on 19 August he was loaned to Penarol of Uruguay. After ending his loan spell with the Uruguayan team, the Brazilian midfielder joined Santos and he played 10 games for the Brazilian team.
On 1 July he signed a contract with Estoril and he moved to Cagliari at the end of the season. Joao Pedro has 11 caps for Brazil U17 and he scored one goal for the national team.
Highlighted Team (Burnley):
Burnley were one of the founding members of the Football League back in 1888. The Clarets did remarkably well to win the FA Cup trophy back in 1914 and the club owners have been trying to bring glory days back to Turf Moor ever since.
Burnley defeated Liverpool in the 1913/1914 FA Cup final and, no doubt, this is regarded as the greatest achievement in the club’s history. The Clarets finished the 2015/2016 Championship campaign in top position in the standings and, as a result, they will participate in the English Premier League in the 2016/2017 season.
Burnley play their home games at Turf Moor and the capacity of the stadium is 21,401. The Clarets have won two Community Shield trophies so far, in 1960 and 1973, but they have yet to clinch the Premier League title. Claret is the dominant colour of the team’s home shirts.
