Watford vs. Liverpool: Premier League – Match Preview

Liverpool need a win when they travel to face Watford on Monday evening in the race for the Premier League top four.

Watford were disappointingly beaten away at Hull City last time out, despite the hosts playing for over an hour with 10 men.

Lazar Markovic’s opener was doubled by a superb Sam Clucas effort late on.

Liverpool were beaten 2-1 at home by Crystal Palace last Sunday, despite Philippe Coutinho’s opener.

Two goals from Christian Benteke against his former employers earned Palace a huge win.

Premier League form: Watford W3 D0 L2; Liverpool W3 D1 L1

Watford – Troy Deeney 10 goals

Match history
Liverpool hit Watford for six earlier in the season in probably their best display of the campaign.

Both teams to score – 5/6 with Paddy Power

Team news
Younes Kaboul and Mauro Zarate remain out for the hosts here.

Despite the loss at Hull they are unlikely to make many changes.

Liverpool hope to have Adam Lallana back available and he could well be risked.

They remain without captain Jordan Henderson and top scorer Sadio Mane though.

Expected starting XI’s
Watford (4-3-3): Gomes; Janmaat, Prodl, Britos, Holebas; Capoue, Doucoure, Cleverley; Amrabat, Deeney, Niang
Liverpool (4-3-3): Mignolet; Clyne, Lovren, Matip, Milner; Wijnaldum, Can, Lallana; Firmino, Origi, Coutinho


Result: Draw (7/2 with Bet Victor)

Correct Score: 1-1 (8/1 with Paddy Power)

Anytime Goalscorer: Divock Origi (31/21 with 888 Sport)
