Watford vs Liverpool Match Preview
Liverpool’s incredible Premier League record this season almost took a dent on Monday, but it is extremely difficult to predict anything other than another victory for them at Watford.
The Premier League champions-elect nearly dropped points for only a second time this term when they trailed 2-1 at home to West Ham with a quarter of the match to go. However, goals from Mo Salah and Sadio Mane ensured the Reds now have 79 points from a possible 81.
Yet again, Liverpool were perfunctory rather than scintillating and that could be the case again at Watford, as it was when these teams met at Anfield a week-and-a-half before Christmas when the 2-0 victory margin actually flattered Liverpool.
That was Nigel Pearson’s first game in charge of Watford and after lifting the club’s form over the festive period and through to mid-January, the former Leicester boss must now be worried that they have slumped again and are entrenched in the relegation zone.
The Hornets are winless in six league and cup matches, but they do not have the most daunting run-in to the campaign and will be hopeful they can still dig themselves out of trouble if able to rediscover their best form.
Watford will be happy when this game is out of the way and even though they appear unlikely to get anything from it, they could make Liverpool work hard for the three points if they replicate the spirit they showed at Anfield in December.
