Watford vs. Liverpool: Premier League – Match Preview

Liverpool start their Premier League campaign off away at Watford in Saturday’s early kick-off.

Marco Silva has taken over at Watford this summer having previously managed Hull City.

The club broke their transfer record ahead of the fixture, bringing Andre Gray to the club for nearly £20million.

Liverpool’s biggest outlay of summer has been Mohammed Salah, who arrives from A.S Roma.

The future of Philippe Coutinho remains in doubt with the club rejecting a £90million offer from Barcelona.

Team news
Watford are set to be without Troy Deeney here after he missed the majority of pre-season.

Gray could make his debut just days after signing for the club, with new additions Will Hughes and Nathaniel Chalobah also set to feature.

Adam Lallana is out for at least three months, whilst Coutinho is set to miss out through an injury of his own.

Trent Alexander-Arnold is set to deputise from full-back, with Nathaniel Clyne unlikely to be fit.

Expected starting XI’s
Watford (4-3-3): Gomes; Janmaat, Prodl, Britos, Holebas; Hughes, Chalobah, Capoue; Amrabat, Gray, Cleverley
Liverpool (4-3-3): Mignolet; Alexander-Arnold, Lovren, Matip, Moreno; Milner, Henderson, Wijnaldum; Mane, Firmino, Salah
