These two teams have concerns at opposite ends of the table. The Reds are looking to chase down Manchester City and win the title. Indeed, victory here would put them top of the table for at least a few hours, with Manchester City facing a tricky trip to Burnley later in the day. Watford, meanwhile, desperately need points in order to escape the relegation zone.
Liverpool are on an incredible run at the moment, winning their last nine Premier League games. A victory over Watford on Saturday would be the third time they have gone on a run of 10 or more successive Premier League victories under the management of Jürgen Klopp. Furthermore, they are unbeaten in 18 matches at Anfield, including winning the last nine there while scoring 27 and conceding just two.
Watford’s task is, then, an intimidating one. They have won just two of their six Premier League games under the new management of Roy Hodgson. They have drawn two others, amassing a total of eight points since Claudio Ranieri was replaced. The visitors do not have a good record at Anfield either, claiming just four points from the last 30 available to them. They did, though, beat Liverpool 3-0 at Vicarage Road in February 2020.
Despite going into the Liverpool vs Watford live stream three points behind Everton, having played two games more, the visitors should have some confidence thanks to their victory over Southampton before the international break.
Liverpool’s Andy Robertson returned to action for Scotland against Austria on Tuesday having recovered from Covid. However, his fellow fullback Trent Alexander-Arnold is only fit enough for the bench.
Watford had eight players away on international duty, but appear to have got them all back unscathed. They will be hoping that Cucho Hernandez can continue his fine form after he scored both their goals in that 1-2 victory over Southampton.
Here's how they line up:
Liverpool: Alisson, Gomez, Matip, van Dijk, Robertson, Jones, Henderson, Thiago, Salah, Firmino, Jota.
Watford: Foster, Femenia, Kabasele, Samir, Kamara, Sissoko, Louza, Kucka, Sarr, Joao Pedro, Hernandez.
Will Mo Salah and co. continue their magnificent run, or will their former manager guide his new side to a shock victory? You can find out by watching the Liverpool vs Watford live stream — and we'll show you how to do that below.
