Berhami eyes Watford marker

Valon Behrami believes Watford's next two games against Burnley and Bournemouth will show how far the team have progressed this season.

The Hornets made it back-to-back wins last time out with victory over Manchester United, seemingly ending concerns over it being a difficult season for the club, having previously taken two points from their first four matches.

Behrami says Watford can not afford to become complacent after claiming the scalp of United and believes the challenge of getting up for a more low key fixture against Burnley on Monday will show the team has taken a step forward under boss Walter Mazzarri.

“I think the next two games are the most dangerous games because they play a different kind of game, especially Burnley, so we need to focus even more,” the midfielder told watfordfc.com.

“For a game like Manchester United it’s easy to prepare yourself, but it’s not as easy to prepare for a game against Burnley.

“It’s going to be very different and that’s the moment when we have to show if we’ve made a new step forward with this team.

“We have a big chance to do that and to show that, but we know it’s not going to be easy.”
