Javi Gracia may opt for an unchanged line-up for Watford’s trip to Burnley on Sunday. The Hornets made a strong start to the campaign, stinging Brighton 2-0 thanks to a brace from Roberto Pereyra, who has now been involved in each of Watford’s last seven league goals, scoring five and assisting the other two.
Gracia caused a slight surprise by starting with two up front, including both Troy Deeney and Andre Gray and the pair dove-tailed well and should get the nod again.
Tom Cleverley remains sidelined but 18-year-old Ben Wilmot could feature after being injured against Brighton.
Nathaniel Chalobah’s return from a long spell on the sidelines is being managed, while Stefano Okaka’s future at the club remains uncertain and he could leave before the end of the window.
The Hornets will be hoping to upset the record books on Sunday, having failed to win three of their last four meetings against the Clarets but are without a win in their last 12.
