Liverpool would be looking to continue their pre-season form into the matches. They have had a rollicking start to the season and would like to have an encore of those performances in the premier league. Their attack has looked menacing all through the pre-season. They whizzed passed 19 goals in 8 matches. Salah their new signing has jelled in well and Jurgen Klopp’s faith in Firmino is paying dividends.
They would be hoping for the return of Daniel Sturridge to strengthen their attack. Though the news surrounding the transfer of Coutinhio to Barcelona isn’t good for the dressing room. But seeing the high professional level of these players, it should hardly make a difference.
If we look at the defence of Liverpool, it looks rock solid. In their pre-season, they had staggering 4 clean sheets of the 8 matches they played. Lovern and Matip would be hoping to keep up their good work and help Goalkeeper Mingolet in keeping clean sheets. Also, the return of Can in the midfield is going to boost them up and propel them in this match.
For Watford, it hasn’t been this bright. Their pre-season was indifferent with just 2 wins in their 6 matches. They have a host of changes in their team with a new manager in their dug-out. Marco Silva has roped in Chelsea midfielder Nathaniel Chalobah and young Brazilian Richarlison. Also, there is Andre Gray their record signing. The club would be hoping for some early goals from their marksmen.Though the presence of Cleverly in the midfield is going to provide the team with much needed Premier League experience.
As far the prediction, expect it to be one sided affair. Liverpool had done double over Watford this season and should win this match hassle free. As for Watford, they would be aiming to stay afloat this season in the league. Liverpool should win the match 3-0.
