    BURNLEY v WATFORD

    Venue Turf Moor
    Sunday 19th August 2018
    Kick Off 13.30 BST
    All eyes will be on Joe Hart when the two club's clash this weekend.

    The ex-England No1 is looking to rescue his reputation after joining the Clarets from Manchester City.

    Dyche's defenders will be looking to mark in-form Roberto Pereyra out of the game.

    The Argentine ace scored against Burnley at Vicarage Road last season and he found the net twice last week.

    Burnley boss Sean Dyche will again rotate his squad following Thursday night's win in the Europa League, 1-0 AET

    Chris Wood, Johann Berg Gudmundsson and James Tarkowski are among those expected to return but new signing Matej Vydra is not yet match fit.

    Watford head coach Javi Gracia may name an unchanged side following last week's impressive win over Brighton.

    The Hornets remain without midfielder Tom Cleverley, who is still sidelined by an Achilles injury.

    Head-to-head

    • Burnley have won three of their last four matches against Watford and completed the league double over them last season.
    • Watford have recorded just one victory in eight games versus the Clarets, a 2-0 home win in February 2017.
    • The Hornets have not won at Turf Moor since a 3-2 victory in the second tier in April 2004.


    Referee: Paul Tierney
    Assistants: Adrian Holmes, Mick McDonough
    Fourth official: ChrisKavanagh


    Time for an away win This week would do nicely

    Thanks OFH. Doesn't Joe hart look old in the photo. At least into his 40's. Is it just this photo or in others too? - old for a footballer!

    Cheers for the thread OFH.

    GD; NC; TC & SO are all still out apparently. Same team as last week, I presume.

    Would be great to get an away win here. Didn't Burnley play in Europe in mid-week? Might give us a little more of a chance in what we know is going to be a tough game against Dyche's men.

    Mex, they were at home on Thursday, so no travelling issues. Last week at Southampton, apparently they started well, even though they had played in Instanbul on the Thursday night - Dyche made 4 changes for the Southampton match. Also, we seem to have a relatively poor record when we travel to Lancashire - I'm referring mainly to Blackburn, Bolton, Burnley and Preston.

    Looking forward to this. A really difficult challenge. I can see us coming away with a point if we can keep last week's momentum. But equally SD is a tough competitor so get ready for 90 minutes of nail biting.

    Hope the team is the same. I know it is away from home but we seem so much better when we are going forward, and I get nervous when we sit deep. Enjoy one and all <cheers><cheers><cheers><cheers>

    I am going to miss this one. :emoticon-0106-cryin Dinner cannot be stopped for a football match. Let's hope that Javi still has a smile on his face at full time.

    I reckon a 0-3 win should put us top if only for a day. So we better get 5 to make sure. So important to get ahead and stay ahead these days.

    To ensure our Champions League spot we need 9 points from these first three games.

    As long as we have 44 points by the new year I'll be happy. Then with the addition of Bale and a big name Central defender in January we should be ok. C'mon u'orns.

    ;)

    Good news that Gray has opened his account. Nice if he nabbed another one!
