Watford vs Liverpool Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips


Liverpool continue their march towards the Premier League title with a clash against Watford at Vicarage Road. The Reds are just four wins away from the title and are backed to get the better of a struggling Watford team.

Watford Form


Watford are coming off a disappointing 3-0 defeat to Man United in their previous Premier League fixture. They wasted the few chances created and were generally second best to United for much of the contest.

The Hornets failed to sustain a good spell following the arrival of manager Nigel Pearson and are now back in the relegation zone. They are currently on a five-match winless run in the Premier League and have lost three of their last four fixtures.

Watford News


Defender Daryl Janmaat remains the only first team player currently sidelined with injury. Winger Ismaila Sarr made his return with a substitute appearance at Old Trafford and is likely to be included in the starting lineup on Saturday.

Liverpool Form


Liverpool were made to work hard in their last Premier League fixture as they came from behind to earn a 3-2 victory against West Ham. Georginio Wijnaldum opened the scoring in the first half while Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane added further goals after the break.

The Reds continue to set the pace in the Premier League as they sit 22 points clear at the top of the table. Jurgen Klopp’s men have dropped just two points this season, claiming 26 wins and a draw from 27 matches. 

There has been a slight vulnerability in defence in recent weeks as they were breached by Atletico Madrid in the Champions League prior to conceding two goals against West Ham.

Liverpool News


Liverpool are without captain Jordan Henderson while Xherdan Shaqiri and Nathaniel Clyne remain unavailable. The Reds could make one change to the team that started against West Ham with midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain likely to be handed a start after impressing off the bench on Monday.


Watford vs Liverpool Head to Head


Liverpool have a 21-4 advantage in the head to head against Watford with two draws from 27 previous matches. The Reds have won the last four meetings, including a 2-0 victory in the reverse fixture at Anfield with Mohamed Salah netting a brace.

Watford vs Liverpool Betting Odds


Watford are outsiders among bookmakers with bet365 offering 8.00 for a home win while a draw is set at odds of 4.75. Liverpool are short priced to triumph at Vicarage Road at odds of 1.44. 

Liverpool produced over 4.5 goals in their last fixture and a similar outcome is valued at 4.80 at betfair. Bet365 is paying 2.75 for over 3.5 goals while over 2.5 goals is set at odds of 1.67 at William Hill.

Watford vs Liverpool Match Up 


Watford have conceded eight goals in their last three matches and are likely to struggle against Liverpool’s superior attacking quality.

Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah has a superb record against Watford with eight goals in the last five matches. Sadio Mane also has five goals in eight appearances against the Hornets and both men will be confident of getting on the score sheet on Saturday.
