Many Liverpool fans hoped and expected they would see their side beat Manchester United in that crunch Premier League clash at Old Trafford last weekend, but it wasn’t to be. Marcus Rashford’s brace proved too much for them in the end despite a good second half showing; they looked lively and could have stolen a point but Jose Mourinho’s plan to harness their star trio, Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino, worked a treat. As a result, the Reds, who had the chance to overtake United, fell five points behind them in the race for second place. But they welcome Watford on Saturday evening, with just four games going ahead because of the FA Cup, with a chance to reapply the pressure.

Jurgen Klopp will be confident his side can do that, especially if they hit the heights they know they can in terms of attacking quality and intensity. That said, in their last three games, against Newcastle, Porto in the Champions League and then United, they have been shackled for long periods. Watford are coasting through the season in midtable with very little to play for, and Javi Gracia’s men are certainly there for the taking on Saturday.


As mentioned above, Liverpool, who had been scoring goals for fun, haven’t looked their freeflowing selves of late. But now could be the ideal chance to get back on track heading into a crucial run-in.


Watford, meanwhile, have won three of their last five league games, but were taken apart comprehensively by Arsenal last week.

Team News

Liverpool have no fresh injury concerns, with only Nathaniel Clyne and Adam Bogdan currently in the treatment room.

Watford will be without Nathaniel Chalobah, Younes Kaboul and Gerard Deulofeu for trip to Merseyside.
