Watford rival leaders Leicester for the title of Premier League story of the season so far, with Quique Sanchez Flores’ side in seventh and looking safe on a whopping 25 points, having won seven times in the top flight already.
For a Liverpool side without a win in three matches, the trip to Vicarage Road may seem a troubling prospect, but their away form under new coach Jurgen Klopp suggests the Reds are no bad bet at a just odds-on 20/21.
Liverpool have notched 13 times in five road fixtures against Premier League opposition since the German took over, despite drawing their first game with Klopp at the helm 0-0 away to Spurs, and losing 2-0 at Newcastle a fortnight ago.
The 3-1 victory at Chelsea, 4-1 thumping of Manchester City away, and 6-1 thrashing of Southampton at St Mary’s in the Capital One Cup showed that this Liverpool side is capable of big results on the road, and Watford haven’t exactly been at their best when ‘big clubs’ come to town.
Both Manchester United and Arsenal have left North London with all the points this season, and Flores’ men have taken just one from visits to City and Everton, as well as losing at home to Crystal Palace.
There were signs of life anew from Liverpool in the 2-2 draw against West Brom last time out at Anfield, and Ladbrokes’ enhanced 7/2 (from 3/1) about Klopp and co winning with both teams getting on the scoresheet ranks a decent wager.
The bookies also roll out their Double Odds 1st Goalscorer offer for this televised clash, meaning you’ll get twice the price if your pick breaks the deadlock within the first 25 minutes.
Having managed as much against the Baggies, where he fired the opener in the 21st minute, returning Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson gets the nod to do so again at meaty 10/1 odds.
