Liverpool vs Watford Match Preview
Liverpool have drawn four of their last five games, but it should be business as usual at Anfield when they host an admittedly in-form Watford side.
The Reds remain top of the Premier League table, one point ahead of Manchester City having played the same number of matches, and their destiny in the title race remains in their own hands.
Concerns have been expressed that Jurgen Klopp’s team might be feeling the pressure as the stakes build higher with the season now into the home straight, but there is little to worry about regarding their recent home form.
Anfield is still something of a fortress and although Bayern Munich got a 0-0 draw there in the Champions League last week, the most recent Premier League fixture – and which bears some resemblance to this one – ended in a 3-0 victory for Liverpool against Bournemouth.
Watford will be full of confidence because they have won three on the bounce, reaching the FA Cup quarter-finals and then dishing out a 5-1 drubbing away to Cardiff City last Friday.
But the Hornets have a poor record at Anfield, they have lost every league match against the ‘big six’ since early September and are expected to be sent packing in decisive fashion here by a Liverpool side who will be determined not to relinquish their place at the summit.
