English Premier League predictions for Liverpool – Watford
Liverpool’s fans expect just another clean business from their team when the current Premier League leaders host Watford at the Anfield on Saturday. These are our English Premier League predictions for this showdown from the 17th round of the competition.
Unstoppable. This is how Liverpool look like at the moment. Leading the standings with 8 points advantage in front of Leicester City, unbeaten and having won 15 games out of 16 – the European champions are looking better than ever. And this is not just a compliment, this is a fact.
On Tuesday Liverpool won their Champions League group by beating Salzburg with 2-0 at the Red Bull Arena. The manager Jurgen Klopp was careful about doing rotations and he picked his best team to face the Austrians. Naby Keita and Mohamed Salah scored for the English side. It was a calm and masterful game by Liverpool who did the job and went home.
It’d be too much to say that we can expect some kind of a surprise in the game between Liverpool and Watford on Saturday. The best team in the league faces the worst team in the league – at least this is what the standings are saying to us. Watford are at the bottom of the table with just 9 points won and it sounds like a fantasy to think they can trouble the leader at the Anfield.
This is going to be a second game for Watford’s new manager Nigel Pearson. He already debuted with a 0-0 draw against Crystal Palace at the Vicarage Road. But now he’s facing a huge challenge and it won’t be surprised if he register his first loss with the Hornets.
That’s our English Premier League predictions for the game between Liverpool and Watford on Saturday. We have no doubts that the Reds will dominate the game and they will win in a comfortable way.
