Premier League 2022 live Burnley vs Watford: Burnley will host Watford on Saturday in a match that could have serious repercussions in their battle for relegation.
Burnley had already postponed their match against Watford twice. They are 20th in the Premier League table with 12 points after 18 games, and a win over the Hornets could push them to 18th place. Shawn Daichi’s side are currently four points away from the safety zone, but they have four games to play with 17th-placed Norwich City, starting with Saturday’s clash.

The Hornets are one place and two points ahead of their hosts, and the last time they sacked Claudio Ranieri after losing 3-0 to rivals Norwich, while Roy Hodgson is preparing to lead his first match in the training period. He still has two games against Watford, Newcastle United, who are in the 19th and 18th places, and three matches against Norwich City, who are 17th with 16 points.
It might seem that an escape from the relegation zone should work amicably with Burnley. But they have a tough set of matches to come. Sean Daiki’s team will face Manchester United, Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur in the next three weeks.
Striker Chris Wood left Burnley in January but has been replaced by Foote Wighurst, who is 6-foot-5 and is expected to be fit. Burnley’s 3-1 win over Brentford at the end of October remains their only win of the Premier League season.
