UPDATE: This game has now been postponed due to a Covid outbreak at Watford. 

The Burnley vs Watford live stream is a six-pointer in every sense of the word — the home side finds themselves in the relegation zone, with the away side sitting just outside of it. 

A Burnley win would see them leapfrog Watford, but if the Hertfordshire-based side can take all three points they'll put some daylight between themselves and the relegation trapdoor.

November was a tough month for Sean Dyche’s Burnley, as the side failed to win any of their five matches. OK, so they did manage four draws (including an unexpected stalemate at Stamford Bridge), but the defeat against fellow relegation strugglers Newcastle United came as a serious blow. A positive result in this fixture is of vital importance to the side’s prospects of staying in the league.  

The good news for Dyche is that summer signing Maxwel Cornet could be fit enough to play tonight. After coming off injured against Newcastle, some Burnley fans feared the worst — but it looks like the 25-year old has bounced back quickly. This will be a huge boost to the team, as Cornet has been a real bright spark this season and is the side’s current top scorer with five goals.  

After a remarkable 4-1 win over Manchester United around a month ago, Watford have gone on a poor run of four defeats in a row, losing to Leicester City, Chelsea, Manchester City and Brentford. New manager Claudio Ranieri desperately needs to get back to winning ways if he's to prevent his side from slipping into the drop zone. 

Of course, the team is still suffering from the loss of Ismaila Sarr, who sustained a serious injury against the Red Devils and isn’t expected back until 2022. However, that won’t be an excuse for them failing to claim a result here. If Watford take all three points that will put them five clear of Burnley in 18th, which will surely be an invaluable gap going into the busy festive period.
