Watford – Liverpool
Liverpool travel to face Watford at the Vicarage Road on Saturday with only one idea in mind – to make another step towards their first domestic title since 1990. In our English Premier League predictions we will discuss this fixture between Watford and Liverpool on Saturday.
Liverpool will win the Premier League this season and now everyone knows it. It’s just a matter of time before Jurgen Klopp’s team make it official. Right now the Reds are leading the standings with 79 points, being 22 points ahead of the champion Manchester City. This is truly impressive. Just look at Liverpool’s record at the moment – 26 wins from 27 games played, still no losses.
We can’t say anything new for Liverpool and what they are doing in the league so far. If they finish the season in this way, Liverpool will record the best performance ever in the Premier League. And after winning the Champions League in the previous season, Jurgen Klopp is arguably going to become a huge legend at the Anfield Road.
Klopp has some players missing before this match. The captain Jordan Henderson is not avaliable, while Xherdan Shaqiri is also sidelined.
Watford had some moments of revival under the management Nigel Pearson, but it seems his magic is gone now. The Hornets won just two points in their last two matches, so now Watford are once again in the relegation zone, being 19th with 24 points. If Watford want to keep their place in the elite, they must find a way to start winning again – just as they did in the first weeks of Nigel Pearson’s arrival.
Can Watford trouble Liverpool at the Vicarage Road on Saturday? In our English Premier League predictions we believe it’s going to be difficult, especially with Watford’s current shape. They are barely winning any points lately and against Liverpool it will be even more difficult.
