Watford vs Liverpool Tips


New manager Claudio Ranieri will have his task cut out in his first game as Watford’s coach when they welcome Liverpool. This Premier League eighth-round match will be played at Vicarage Road on Saturday night Australian time.

Watford have had a tough start to the Premier League season and responded to that by sacking manager Xisco Munoz before the international break. Claudio Ranieri has experience in the league but Liverpool will be a tough cookie. I am backing Liverpool to win this match that is likely to see goals on the higher side. Mohamed Salah is also likely to continue his scoring record against Watford.

Head to Head


There have been 34 matches between Watford and Liverpool in all competitions. Of these, Watford have won six and Liverpool won 24 with the remaining four ending as draws.

Last season saw Liverpool win 2-0 at home with Mohamed Salah scoring a brace. Watford responded with a 3-0 win at this venue with Ismaila Sarr scoring a brace and Troy Deeney adding a late goal. Incidentally, that result ended Liverpool’s unbeaten 44-match run in the Premier League.

Watford Form


Watford start this weekend matches in 15th place with seven points from seven matches. They have won two and drawn one, while losing four matches.

The Hornets have lost 1-0 to Leeds United in their last match before the international break. That made it four losses in their last six matches.

Playing at home, Watford have won, drawn and lost one match each so far. Their latest home match was a 1-1 draw against fellow strugglers Newcastle United.

Watford Team News


Centre-backs Christian Kabasele and Francisco Sierralta are out of action for the next couple of weeks. Watford are also likely to miss Joshua King’s services but Joao Pedro could make his first start.

Liverpool Form


Liverpool start this round of fixtures 2nd in the Premier League table with 15 points from seven matches. They are only one point behind leaders Chelsea, although just one ahead of four teams trailing them.

The Reds are unbeaten this season with four wins and three draws. However, they have drawn their last two league matches including a hard-fought 2-2 draw against Man City last time.

Playing away from home, Liverpool have managed two wins and a draw so far. Each of the matches saw Liverpool scoring three goals.

Liverpool Team News


The Brazilian duo of Alisson and Fabinho are likely to be out of this match due to their late return from international duty. Diogo Jota is unlikely to be fit in time to start, while Trent Alexander-Arnold is nearing full fitness.

Verdict

Watford will hope for some new manager bounce, but Liverpool will travel here keen to pick up full points. Mohamed Salah’s form is a blessing for the visitors, who will look to keep in touch with the Premier League leaders.

I am backing this match to produce over 2.5 goals. Salah remains my pick to score first, owing to his record against Watford.
