TEAM NEWS
Liverpool’s Roberto Firmino has a chance of playing despite being forced off at Manchester United with an ankle problem.
Should the Reds decide against risking him, the Brazilian would be likely to return in Sunday’s Merseyside derby with Everton.
Naby Keita will be monitored after a recent illness, but defenders Dejan Lovren and Joe Gomez remain out.
Watford could name the same side which began Friday’s 5-1 win against Cardiff.
This match comes too soon for full-back Kiko Femenia, who is back in training after a hamstring injury, but he is expected to be their only absentee.
Liverpool’s lack of goal threat is a worry, says Shearer
Gracia haiils Watford’s “outstanding” display against Cardiff
MOTD COMMENTATOR’S NOTES
@Wilsonfooty: With one memorable exception, Watford’s journeys to Anfield have proved to be utterly fruitless – but Tommy Mooney is probably still dining out on that exception.
Mooney scored in front of the Kop in August 1999 as the Hornets recorded their first (and still only) league points at Liverpool in a 1-0 win. That was their only away victory of the entire season, as they finished bottom of the Premier League.
Watford, like Liverpool, are a much better side these days. Javi Gracia’s men have lost just one of their last 10 away games in all competitions, and
put five past Cardiff in South Wales last Friday.
Liverpool should win – some might say that Liverpool must win. However, that’s not to say that Liverpool will win.
VIEW FROM THE DUGOUT
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp on the title run-in: “We don’t have to look as far ahead as 11 games.
“It is so positive. If you only judge the moment and see the opportunity everything is fine.
“If you look back then it makes life more uncomfortable.
“In a situation where you can be champions for the first time in your life it is a pure opportunity and you have to use that on the front foot.”
Watford head coach Javi Gracia on the threat posed by Mohamed Salah: “I remember in the last game we played against him he scored a lot of goals.
“I try to learn from all the games, of course… we have analysed the last games against them, this season and last season as well, and we try to do better next time.”
LAWRO’S PREDICTION
This is a tricky week for the Reds, with the Merseyside derby at Goodison Park coming up on Sunday. What they really want ahead of that is a decent performance and a comfortable victory.
I think they will get the win, but they are going to have work for it because Watford are on a good run and they will provide a serious test.
Prediction: 2-0
