What channel is Burnley v Watford Premier League match on? Kick off time, live stream and latest team news
Check out how to watch Burnley v Watford in the Premier League this week, including TV and live stream details, team news, predictions and odds.
Relegation rivals Burnley and Watford face off on Saturday in the only Premier League game on TV this weekend as the top flight's bottom two teams meet.
The Clarets have won just once all season, a 3-1 victory against Brentford, but will have taken heart from a gritty draw against Arsenal ahead of the winter break.
A win for the hosts would mean they leapfrog Saturday's opponents to move off the bottom of the Premier League table and to within one point of safety.
New manager Roy Hodgson will be hoping to start his Hornets tenure in style by delivering a first victory since November, which would see them move out of the bottom three.
Claudio Ranieri was given his marching orders after Watford's 3-0 loss to fellow strugglers Norwich City in late January left them 19th in the table and by appointing Hodgson, they've hired a manager that has a huge amount of experience escaping the drop.

Our prediction: Burnley v Watford
It could well be the tale of two strikers at Turf Moor on Saturday with January signing Wout Weghorst set to make his debut for Burnley and Watford without Emmanuel Dennis after he was sent off against Norwich.
With Dennis and Ismaila Sarr both absent, Sean Dyche's side look to have a slight advantage in this relegation six-pointer.
Hodgson will be determined to make a strong start but it could take a little longer for him to work his magic.
