Burnley vs. Watford
Minute Commentary
90' FULL TIME
Burnley hold on comfortably and take the three points.
90' ADDED TIME
Burnley are looking to run down the clock now, as four minutes of added time is announced.
84' POSSESSION
Burnley are finally enjoying the lion's share of possession. Watford seem a little disheartened.
79' OVER
Janmaat's headed effort at the near post sails over. With only ten minutes left, Watford at least need to test Pope.
74' PUSHING FORWARD
Watford are on the front foot again. Burnley could really have done with that two-goal cushion. It's going to be a nervy last 15 minutes at Turf Moor.
69' NO GOAL
Burnley, after a more positive few minutes, have the ball in the net, and are already off celebrating before a late flag gives Watford a reprieve. Barnes had latched on to a pass and slid the ball past Gomes.
65' DEFENDING
Burnley are really not making their extra man count. They're camped behind the ball and have barely had a sniff of possession since the restart.
60' PRESSURE
More pressure from Watford, but again they're lacking in the final third. Cleverley has a sight at goal from the edge of the box, but sends his shot into row Z.
56' GOOD CHALLENGE
Burnley are under the cosh here. Again Watford work the ball into the box, but Cork makes an excellent last-ditch challenge to deny Carrillo.
54' GOOD SPELL
Watford do have momentum at the moment, despite their numerical disadvantage. A positive team move culminates in a shooting opportunity for Doucoure, but he skews his shot wide.
50' PROMISING START
Watford have begun the second half on the front foot, but, especially given they are a man down, they have to be wary of counter-attacks.
46' KICK-OFF
We're back underway, both sides unchanged at the break.
45' HALF TIME
The first half comes to a close.
44' MORE ON THAT GOAL
Cool as you like from SCOTT ARFIELD. He inherits the ball inside the box, creates some space turning past Janmaat and slots home. 1-0.
43' GOOOAAALLL
Burnley quickly take advantage of the sending off, taking the lead through Arfield!
40' MORE ON THAT RED CARD
Zeegelaar slides in late with two feet on Defour and the referee shows little hesitation in pulling out the red card. Defour isn't hurt, and the tackle didn't look so bad from some angles, but you can't blame Lee Probert for sending him off there.
38' RED CARD
Zeegelaar is sent off! Watford are down to ten men.
37' HEADER
A decent move from Watford culminates in Janmaat meeting a cross. It's slightly behind him, though, and he fails to get any power on it. Easy save.
33' EXCHANGING POSSESSION
Neither side can keep hold of the ball at the moment. Doucoure makes a promising run, but his final pass is cut out.
28' EVEN AFFAIR
Burnley seem to have settled and are seeing more of the ball now. The game is largely being played in the centre of the pitch, though.
24' GOOD GOALKEEPING
Doucoure's long throw looks problematic, but Pope wades through a bunch of players to pluck the ball out of the air.
20' SAVE
Burnley almost sneak an opener against the run of play, but are denied by a wonderful stop from Gomes. Gudmundsson dinks a free-kick over the wall, heading for the bottom corner. Gomes tips it around the post at full stretch for a fruitless flag-kick.
17' PRESSURE
Watford are chasing down the ball at every opportunity and it's paying off. They've enjoyed the vast majority of possession in the opening 15 minutes, and when Burnley do get the ball, they're resorting to long passes under pressure.
13' ATTACK
Burnley finally have a chance to go forward, but with plenty of players behind the ball, the chance is spurned thanks to little support in the final third for Wood.
10' GREAT CHANCE
The first big chance of the game falls to Watford; Carrillo floats a cross in for Richarlison at the near post. He meets it with a volleyed effort but sends it inches past the post.
7' CONTROL
Watford continue to control the ball in and around the opposition area, but so far they've been unable to create anything meaningful.
4' POSSESSION
Watford are enjoying plenty of possession so far; Burnley have barely had a sniff of the ball.
3' QUICK START
Watford are quick out of the blocks and earn an early corner, but Deeney's eventual header is wide of the mark.
1' KICK-OFF
We're underway at Turf Moor.
