Liverpool’s unbeaten run of seven games came to an end last weekend as they lost at Manchester United. The Reds will be eager to get back to the winning ways when they host Watford at Anfield on Saturday.
Following the defeat to United, the Reds have slipped down to the fourth spot in the league table. The Merseysiders are only four points clear of fifth-placed Chelsea, and they can’t afford to drop any easy points in the final stretch of the season.
However, Liverpool have been quite exceptional at Anfield, and they will be quite confident of a win against the Hornets, who have been struggling in away games.
Watford have won three of their last five fixtures, but all of these wins have come in home games. In their last game, they lost 3-0 at Arsenal. The Hornets haven’t won a game on their travels since November.
In the league table, Watford have cemented their position in the mid-table due to strong home form. Ahead of the game, they are placed tenth in the table with 36 points.
On the opening day of the season, both sides played an exciting 3-3 draw at Vicarage Road, but we see only a comfortable home win in this game.
