Burnley have lost their last two league outings by a scoreline of one goal to nil while Watford come into this game having picked up seven points from a possible nine. A win could see Marco Silva’s men leapfrog the Turf Moor outfit, these two teams may end up cancelling each other out with a draw very possible.
It’s not every day you witness a game which has 11 goals in it, but the fans in attendance at Turf Moor back in April 2003 were fortunate enough to do so. Gareth Taylor scored a hat-trick for Burnley, but he was outshone by Watford’s Michael Chopra who scored four that afternoon. Watford would come out on top in a day that was not good for either defence with the game finishing 7-4 in their favour.
