Liverpool missed the chance to go to the top of the Premier League table when they drew 2-2 with Manchester City a fortnight ago.

They had led the game twice only to give up goals on both occasions, leaving them second on the table coming into this clash.

Watford won their opening game of the season but have had just 1 victory in their 6 matches since, with 4 defeats in that run. They also have a new manager already, with Claudio Ranieri brought in over the international break.

Who will win Watford vs Liverpool?

Watford vs Liverpool - Head-to-head

Liverpool have won 4 of the last 5 meetings between these sides, although Watford's only win in that run came at their most recent clash in February of last year, a convincing 3-0 result.

Expect some goals here – at least from the winner – as the victorious side has scored multiple goals in the last 7 meetings between the teams and won it with a clean sheet.

Egyptian international Mo Salah has already scored 6 times this season and we think he'll add to that here in what will likely be a strong victory for Liverpool, who look too powerful on every line.

For Watford, any point here would be a bonus given the battle to survive this season. If Liverpool don't take all 3 points from this clash, the missed chances against Manchester City will hurt even more.
