Liverpool v Watford preview and correct score tips for the match on Sunday 06th November 2016.
Liverpool will probably do what they are best at doing. They will go for goals when they host Watford at Anfield on Sunday. Locked at 23 points with table-toppers Manchester City but down by 2 places. This owing to a goal difference of just two, the Reds will try their utmost to close the gap apart from wanting to win to the game.
For Watford, the 2016-17 season has been a mixed bag. Comprehensive wins of 3-1 over Manchester United and 4-2 over West Ham, but defeat against teams like Burnley and draws against Bournemouth and Swansea City. But still Watford find themselves at a healthy 7th spot on the EPL Table after 10 games. Which for a team that has been away from the Premier League for 10 seasons is very impressive indeed.
Watford have three clean sheets from their last three games. This despite leaking the most number of goals (13) among teams of the top half in the 2016-17 Premier League season.
Post their shock outcome of 0-2 against minions Burnley in August, Jurgen Klopp's boys have had a phenomenal run of 13 unbeaten games of which 10 have been wins. Virtually all upfront players have scored – Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino (5 goals each), Sadio Mane, James Milner and Daniel Sturridge (4 goals each).
For Watford, Etienne Capoue and Troy Deeney with 4 and 3 goals respectively have been their top goal-getters.
Watford manager Walter Mazzari will probably go with the same starting XI eleven that featured in their win over Hull City last Saturday, viz, Heurelho Gomes (goal); Sebastian Prodl, Younes Kaboul, Miguel Britos; Nordin Amrabat, Etienne Capoue, Roberto Pereyra, Valon Behrami, Jose Holebas, Odion Ighalo; Troy Deeney.
After Watford's entry into the Premier League in the 2015-16, they have run into the Reds only twice. They won their first clash 3-0 and lost the last one 0-2 in May this year.
Expect the visitors not to give up without a fight. This despite odds heavily being in favour of a Liverpool win at Anfield on November 6.
