Watford vs Liverpool Match Preview
Watford lost 3-0 on the road the last match-day, against Manchester United. It was their sixth winless game on the trot, and the fourth loss from the past five match-days.
With just eleven games remaining till the end of the competition, this kind of form has made it once more hard for Watford to let themselves go from the clutches of the relegation zone.
Meanwhile, Liverpool recorded a 3-2 win at home over West Ham the past game week. The win equaled the record for the longest winning streak in PL history, and for this season, took the tally to 26 wins from the prior 27 league games.
It almost sounds as if it is a joke. This kind of domination would not even fly in a movie, and we are just lucky enough to watch it unravel in real in front of our own eyes.
Disregarding arch-rivals and the Gunners of course, every other fan must now be rooting for Jurgen Klopp and his boys to go a whole season without a single loss.
Watford vs Liverpool Prediction
Liverpool are easily the best team in the world right now, and they are in sight of a PL trophy, that has eluded them for three decades. They are on absolute crushing form, and any team that would be unfortunate enough to stand in front of them, would be just nonchalantly destroyed.
Into such a scenario, comes the second-last placed team in the league, who are frontrunners to get relegated. The Reds who have now smelt blood, will be just desperate to finish the job at hand. They will not pay any heed to the fact that they are taking on a team that’s considered to be one of the worst in the whole league.
Moreover, Klopp’s men have recorded a 15-0 combined scoreline from the past four h2h clashes, and only once have they lost at this venue in the past two decades. Also keep note that Watford had conceded a total of 27 goals from the prior eight h2h fixtures, and failed to score at home in four of their previous six meetings against the Reds.
Taking into account all these findings, it’s clearly evident that Liverpool are about to deliver another dominating win this Saturday.
