Liverpool will look to resume Premier League duties with a win over a struggling Watford side at Anfield on Saturday afternoon.
LIVERPOOL STATS, FORM, SQUAD
Liverpool kept their dreams of a quadruple alive before the international break with a narrow FA Cup win over Nottingham Forest and they can go top in the Premier League standings with a victory over struggling Watford on Saturday should Man City fail to overcome Burnley. Jurgen Klopp’s men have hit great form since the turn of the new year, losing just one of their 19 competitive games and winning 15 of them, including nine successive Premier League wins, greatly reducing the gap at the top of the table to just a single point. Defensive resilience has seen them win six of their last seven Premier League games without conceding. Jurgen Klopp will also have a full squad to choose from as there are no injury concerns yet. Predicted lineup: Alisson; Arnold, Matip, van Dijk, Robertson; Fabinho, Henderson, Thiago; Salah, Mane, Jota
WATFORD STATS, FORM, SQUAD
A gritty 2-1 win over Southampton before the international break re-ignited Watford’s hope of Premier League survival although they still sit three points from safety in 18th with the teams directly above and below them holding two games in hand. Roy Hodgson’s men have won just two of their last 18 in all competitions, losing 13 times. Defensively, they have been poor as they have conceded 11 goals in their last three defeats and only Norwich and Leeds have a worse defensive record this season. Watford has lost three of their last six meetings with Liverpool by a 5-0 scoreline. Predicted lineup: Foster; Femenia, Kabasele, Samir, Kamara; Louza, Sissoko, Kucka; Cucho, Sarr, Dennis
ACCUMULATOR TIP: LIVERPOOL SCORE BOTH HALVES
SINGLE TIP: LIVERPOOL WIN & OVER 2.5
