Watford boss wary of Liverpool-conquering Burnley side

Watford boss Walter Mazzarri is wary of Burnley ahead of the Monday night Premier League fixture between the two sides at Turf Moor.

The Italian manager, who has led his side to two wins in the last two league games, is expecting a Burnley side full of charge and aggression having previously defeated the in-form Liverpool.

He said: "They are going to be very charged - after we beat Manchester United - and it will be very important for them to win against us.

"Maybe they will be a little bit aggressive towards us and I think it is going to be a difficult away game.

"We have big respect for Burnley - they have won against Liverpool - and they have shown they are a strong side. That is what we need to reflect on.

"They won against a big team like Liverpool, so we need to understand how they won and how well they played. It is not going to be an easy away game.

"Is it clear that we enjoyed the victory [over United]. The boys were very happy and for two days after they were smiling, but we have now archived that and we think about the next game."
