Watford have no intention of sacking Quique Sanchez Flores at this stage of the season, Sky Sports News understands.
Flores returned for a second spell as Watford boss in September - replacing fellow Spaniard Javi Gracia.
- Burnley too strong for lacklustre Watford
- Premier League hits and misses
- Who is the most vulnerable in sack race?
However, the 54-year-old has picked up just one win and seven points from his nine matches in charge of the Hornets, form which has seen them return to the bottom of the Premier League.
Under Flores, Watford have only won once in the league and Saturday's 3-0 defeat to Burnley was the eighth game they have failed to score in this season.
'Revolving door has Sanchez Flores under pressure'
While Arsenal head coach Unai Emery and West Ham's Manuel Pellegrini are the front-runners to become the next Premier League manager to lose their jobs, the situation is similarly precarious at Watford.
When asked for his prediction for the next managerial departure, chief football writer at The People, Steve Bates said on the Sunday Supplement: "Quique Sanchez Flores, given Watford's record of sacking managers - it's a revolving door there and they don't hesitate to make a change.
"When you are losing 3-0 at home to Burnley, no disrespect, then alarm bells are ringing. They've won just one game all season. That's not good enough."
Watford travel to Southampton on Saturday Night Football, live on Sky Sports Premier League, before visiting Leicester on December 4.
