Watford vs Burnley: Match Stats

The decision to replace Sean Dyche was not a popular one but the caretaker regime of Mike Jackson and Ben Mee have found a way to get more from Wout Weghorst. The striker looked isolated under Sean Dyche but has had at least one shot on target in each of his last three games and looks good at evens in a Sky Bet enhancement to do the same here.

James Tarkowski had a good chance from a set-piece last weekend and it is a clear routine worked on in training. He has been boosted to a massive 28/1 with Sky Bet to score from a header and this looks worth taking.
