Watford started the season with consecutive wins after beating Burnley 3-1 for their first away victory of the year.
Andre Gray scored Watford's first away goal since 2 January after just three minutes when he exchanged passes with Troy Deeney and fired beyond Joe Hart.
Burnley were level three minutes later when James Tarkowski headed in a Johann Berg Gudmundsson corner for his first Premier League goal.
But Watford went back in front on 48 minutes through Deeney, who received a sublime pass from Abdoulaye Doucoure to slot in.
