PREMIER LEAGUE pundit Gary Neville has called Burnley’s win at Watford “a massive moment” in the Premier League relegation battle.

The hosts went ahead when Juraj Kucka’s effort hit the bar and went in off James Tarkowski, but the Clarets hit back through goals from Jack Cork and Josh Brownhill.

Neville reckons Burnley have given themselves “a chance” of beating the drop and says they always “fight to the end”.

Speaking on his podcast, the former Manchester United and England full-back said: "Burnley's comeback was a surprise. It shocked us and it would have shocked Leeds United.

"Burnley have given themselves a chance. I am aware of their model in terms of they do have a very strong incentive model on the players staying I the league.

“They have always been committed so I think you always get a fight to the end.

"From somewhere, they have galvanised. They have brought it all together and that was a massive moment at Watford.

"It was like a shock wave, a tremor through the Premier League - particularly at the bottom."

Interim boss Mike Jackson has now picked up 10 points from four matches following Sean Dyche’s departure.

Neville added: "Burnley fans were respectful of the job Sean Dyche had done. What an amazing job, and I think it is one of the amazing jobs in the Premier League to do what he has done.

“But actually there was a feeling from Burnley fans that maybe the change was needed to have any chance of staying up.

"They have got a spirit Burnley and we have always known that. Dyche has put that into those players.

“But if the same voice of the manager has talking to the players every day for a large number of years, there comes a point whereby the manager is tired of talking to the players and the players are tired of hearing from that manager.

"It just felt like there was a bit of that at the end of Dyche's reign at Burnley."
