Liverpool vs Watford

Premier League

WAT vs LIV MATCH PREVIEW:

Liverpool will be playing host to fellow Premier League team Watford at Anfield in the Premier League, knowing a result other than three-points may prove catastrophic considering Tottenham Hotspur are above them in the table, and Chelsea are sniffing hot on their heels for the last Champions League place.

The Reds are 4th in the table, five points behind 2nd placed Manchester United and only one point behind Spurs who are 3rd in the table.

That’s why this match is of paramount importance as neither Manchester United nor Tottenham will be playing a match in the Premier League because of their participation in the FA Cup. while Chelsea’s opponent for this round of fixtures, Burnley, have their own FA Cup tie.

For Watford, the objective of the season is almost achieved as they are only 4 points away from the 40-point mark which would certainly guarantee their Premier League future for yet another season.

WAT vs LIV TEAM NEWS:

Liverpool:

Nathaniel Clyne remains the only doubtful for Liverpool for the match against Watford. While Jurgen Klopp can make asome alterations to his starting XI that was beaten by Manchester United in the last game. Jordan Henderson who was benched at Old Trafford may come back into the side while Joel Matip could replace Dejan Lovren who was poor against United.

Gini Wijnaldum is also in contention after recovering fully from illness.

PROBABLE XI

Karius (GK); Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Dijk, Robertson, Can, Henderson, Wijnaldum, Salah, Firmino, Mane
