Brutal Burnley prediction made by Dutch icon, West Ham miss out on £30m-rated star striker

Burnley are back in action this Saturday night, when they host Watford in what should be an enthralling battle at the bottom of the table.

Both sides head into the game in desperate need of a win, as the relegation battle continues to intensify now the season is past the midway stage.

The last time the two sides faced each other, back in 2020, the Clarets secured a 1-0 win at Turf Moor, thanks to Jay Rodriguez's second-half goal.

While Burnley didn't have the most memorable of January transfer windows, they did at least manage to find a replacement for Chris Wood, bringing in Netherlands international Wout Weghorst.

Discussing the new signing, Clarets boss Sean Dyche said: “Wout is a player that our scouts have been strong on for some time and we feel that he can add to all that we do at Burnley Football Club.

His signing is a continued show of the Club’s and team’s development. We wish Wout well as he earns the right to push our group forwards.”

Chairman Alan Pace added: “I’d like to wish Wout a very warm welcome to Burnley Football Club.

“We’re absolutely delighted to have brought in a great talent with a fantastic goal-scoring pedigree in Germany. I look forward to him joining up with Sean and the team.

“January is a famously difficult window, as we all know. I am however delighted that a lot of hard work by everyone involved has paid off.”
