Liverpool Remain Unbeaten
Jurgen Klopp will be happy that the international break hasn’t been quite so detrimental to his squad this time around. Only Jordan Henderson poses a slight injury worry but with other options in midfield he won’t be too concerned. His side are still one of three teams to remain unbeaten this season alongside Chelsea and Man City, winning nine of 12 matches, and having already played four of the other ‘Big Six’, it hasn’t exactly been a stroll in the park.

Watford Have Started Well
Watford can’t quite boast the same record as that, but they have however had their best start to the season since promotion back in 2014/15 as they sit up in seventh place. However, they’re only W2-D2-L4 across their last eight outings as both victories came against bottom-half sides Wolves and Huddersfield. Moreover, each of the three top-half sides they played in this time – Man Utd, Arsenal and Bournemouth – resulted in defeats as two came at Vicarage Road, while they recently lost and drew at Newcastle and Southampton respectively.
Champions League To Impact Klopp’s Selection
The Reds will be conscious of the fact that they have a huge must-win Champions League encounter next week in Paris, though they’ll take encouragement from winning their first game back after the last two international breaks. The first of these was a 2-1 success at Wembley (which actually flattered Spurs), though the more recent one was a 1-0 win over 19th-placed Huddersfield. With Liverpool not in quite the same form as a couple of months ago, we’re not expecting them to go all guns blazing against a respectable Hornets side. The hosts have had just one goal separate the sides when playing both Man Utd and Spurs here, beating the latter, and so this is set out to be a hard-fought tussle – though we the Reds should still prevail.
Watford v Liverpool Betting Tips
Although Liverpool’s defence receives plenty of plaudits, they have kept just one clean sheet from their last seven road games in all competitions, with that coming against a struggling Terriers side. Meanwhile, Watford have seen both teams find the net in seven of eight matches hosting ‘Big Six’ sides since the start of last season – including a 3-3 draw with the Reds on the opening day last term.
