Nine points back of 17th place with five games to play, Saturday is essentially a must-win for Watford if it wants to find a way out of the relegation zone. A loss to Burnley would virtually lock Watford’s fate up.

The team enters this match having lost four in a row, most recently falling 5-1 to Man City on the 23rd. While Hassane Kamara managed to score a goal, it was Man City in that match, as the Citizens led 21-5 in total shots and 8-2 in shots on target.

Watford’s last campaign before this in the EPL was the 2019-20 season, which also ended in relegation.

Projected Watford starting XI: Kamara, Samir, Kabasele, Ngakia, Cleverley, Louza, Sissoko, Dennis, King, Sarr; Foster

PositionBurnley roster
Goalkeepers Pope, Hennessey, Norris, Waller
Defenders Lowton, Taylor, Tarkowski, Mee, Roberts, Collins, Pieters, Bardsley, Long, Thomas, Richards, Dodgson
Midfielders Cork, Gudmundsson, Brownhill, McNeil, Stephens, Lennon, Westwood
Forwards Weghorst, Barnes, Rodriguez, Cornet, Vydra

Burnley sits 17th in the Premier League and currently is two points ahead of Everton. A win on Saturday would go a long way toward keeping Burnley away from that final relegation spot, especially with Burnley having a fairly easy schedule for the remainder of this campaign.

The team has won two in a row, both shut out victories, first over Southampton and then over Wolves. Matej Vydra scored the lone goal in the latter victory, with Burnley eking one out despite having the ball for just 35% of the match.

On the season, Burnley has a minus-16 goal differential. Maxwell Cornet’s seven goals lead the team. Cornet missed the Wolves game with a knee issue, but the team hopes to have him back for this contest.

Projected Burnley starting XI: Roberts, Collins, Tarkowski, Taylor, McNeil, Cork, Brownhill, Rodriguez, Weghorst, Cornet; Pope
