Kick-off 3pm Saturday

Two of the teams widely tipped for relegation lock horns at Turf Moor but neither Burnley nor Watford are in danger of getting sucked into the bottom three. Instead they are two of the main contenders for seventh place.

Solid defence has underpinned Burnley's strong start, while Watford have impressed with their willingness to play attractive, offensive football.

Watford have the greater scope to improve but Burnley are a tough nut to crack and a stalemate looks the likeliest outcome.
