Watford coach Javi Gracia will look to extend his unbeaten record at Vicarage Road when ex-Hornets boss Sean Dyche brings his Burnley side to WD18 on Saturday.

Gracia, who replaced Marco Silva in January, has won three of his four home fixtures as Watford boss. The Spaniard would have had a fourth win last weekend but Jermain Defoe‘s stoppage-time goal snatched a point for Bournemouth.

The Hornets’ treatment room is gradually becoming less crowded with Kiko Femenía – on target against the Cherries – and Craig Cathcart returning the fold in recent weeks.

However, Gracia will still be without Nathaniel Chalobah (knee), Tom Cleverley (hamstring), Gerard Deulofeu (foot), Christian Kabasele (hamstring), Younès Kaboul (foot), Miguel Britos (illness) and Tommie Hoban (ACL) for the Clarets’ visit.
