Watford take on Liverpool this weekend hoping to build on a brilliant start to the season. The Hornets are in 7th place in the Premier League, two places above a Liverpool side that has struggled in recent weeks. Sports writer Rob Shepherd joined Jamie Banks to discuss Watford’s potential as well as Liverpool’s ambition for the rest of the season.
The newly promoted Watford side under the management of Quique Flores Sanchez is in some kind of form after raking up three wins in a row in the Premier League. Initially rated by the bookmakers are a team that could go down to the Championship this season are with a chance to play for Europe next season if they manage to keep their run for the next few months.
Liverpool had a turbulent season under Brenden Rodgers and with the arrival of Jurgen Klopp the situation is somewhat stabilized. But the recent defeat to Newcastle followed by a draw at the death against West Brom, the Kopps are on two matches without a win.
On Paper the Liverpool may look far superior side than the Hornets and the recent head-to-head record heavily favour the Reds. When the teams last faced-off against each other in the 2006/07 Premier League season, Liverpool grabbed the win on both occasions.
This could be all written off by looking at the form of the likes of Troy Deeney and Odion Ighalo, an upset maybe well in the cards.
