  • Burnley has late goal called offside
  • Clarets three clear of 18th
  • Watford 7th with 33 points
  • Kurt Vonnegut famously wrote that “Everything was beautiful, and nothing hurt.”

    Watford and Burnley flipped that on its ear with plenty of pain and an absence of beauty in a 0-0 draw at Vicarage Road on Saturday.

    Okay, maybe it wasn’t that bad, but this first anecdote does make a fine claim in Vonnegut’s favor.

    Watford’s Jose Holebas threw the ball to Tom Cleverley, who passed it back to Holebas. The Greek international than thumped a volley into Cleverley’s stomach.

    The hosts were lively from the opening kick, with Troy Deeney and Ken Sema nearly working a ball over the line in the first quarter hour.

    Dwight McNeil hit a second half chance to make it 1-0 over the frame, and hit a shot that Chris Wood put home late but was judged to be offside.
