At 15:00 on Saturday the 19th of January Watford play at home in the Premier League against Burnley.
It has been a great season so far for Watford as they are currently in 7th place on 32 points. They may not finish above any of the big boys in the division but they stand a great chance of finishing best of the rest if they continue their fine form this campaign. They have not lost a match in all competitions so far in 2019 and in their last EPL game they beat Crystal Palace 1-2 so the team will be full of confidence. In their next Premier League game after this, they play away at Tottenham Hotspur so it is hard seeing them get anything from that which may make them go all out for the 3 points at the weekend.
Burnley is currently in 15th place and only 3 points from dropping into the relegation zone so it makes the match against Burnley vital if they are going to stay on course to avoid the drop. They are one of the most inform teams in the EPL over recent weeks which has helped them to believe they can stay in the Premier League. They have won their last three matches and will be looking to secure another 3 points when they face Watford. They face Manchester United next so getting valuable points before they go to Old Trafford is essential if they do not want to find themselves in the bottom 3.
Prediction – Draw
Burnley is the team that is more on form but Watford has the home advantage which is why I think this will be a close encounter. I think both teams will manage to find the back of the net once to make it end in a 1-1 draw.
