Pearson believes that it's important to be "flexible."

Watford manager Nigel Pearson told Sky Sports: We're flexible which is something that we feel is important. With the number of games that have been coming up quickly, it's always nice to be able to freshen up. This is what we do and then we see how it is for the next one as well. We feel that we have different options and it's important for us to go out there tonight and build on a positive performance from the weekend.

Dyche's team have seen off the "madness" earlier this week

Burnley manager Sean Dyche told Sky Sports: "We see through some of the madness on and off the pitch. The players give everything and they're renowned for that. "There was no lack of effort the other night. They're (Man City) a good side and they had too many chances. If you do that against the big guns then they'll hurt you which they did."

The last time Watford played Burnley at Turf Moor

 

13:2520 days ago

Watford believe that Burnley will be "well up for the game."

Assistant manager Craig Shakespeare said: "We know that Sean will re-galvanise them and get them up for the game, so [the heavy defeat against Man City] can work both ways, of course. "They'll be well up for the game, knowing what they're about and what they have been about. "We have to give them the due respect they deserve, because of where they are in the table. Yes, they're a few players down, but they've still got their first 11, 12 good players."
13:2220 days ago

Burnley's next few games are "important" and Dyche urges his players to act "professionally."

Burnley manager Sean Dyche said: "The players know these games are important and they have to, professionally, get on with these things. "No matter how disappointed they were, or are, or continue to be, that will have to be just pushed aside while we get on with the football because that is their professional requirement and it is still an important time for us, as well. "Yet again, it's another tough Premier League game."
