Jeff Hendrick Gets Straight Red Card During Watford Vs Burnley

Jeff Hendrick's 20th appearance of the Premier League season lasted just six-and-a-half minutes at Vicarage Road against Watford.

The Ireland international was sent-off for a tackle on Watford's Jose Holebas.

It was the beginning of a bad few minutes for Burnley, as Troy Deeney gave Watford the lead just four minutes later.

On BBC's Final Score, Trevor Sinclair called Hendrick's challenge 'cowardly'.

Definite red card. Really, really cowardly challenge. No intention of playing the ball and he'll be disappointed with that Hendrick.
