Watford v Liverpool Betting Tips: Will the Reds be record breakers?
Liverpool will be looking to move another step closer to the Premier League title with victory at Watford.
The Jurgen Klopp juggernaut rumbles on and shows no signs of slowing down as Liverpool look to make it a record breaking 19 game winning streak against relegation threatened Watford.
Liverpool’s historic charge towards a first English title since 1990 will reach another landmark moment if they secure three points at Vicarage Road. Do the Hornets have a sting in their tail to disrupt the inevitable Premier League title party on Merseyside?
Victory would take Watford out of the bottom three and they would be entitled to a party of their own if they can take points off the league leaders this weekend.
Liverpool are 22 points clear at the top of the table and have picked up a scarcely believable 79 points out of a possible 81. Therefore, it is no surprise that Liverpool are 4/9 favourites for another win.
Nigel Pearson’s side are fighting for their lives in the relation zone and are 6/1 to do what no other team has managed so far this season. Meanwhile, a draw is 7/2 and could make a huge difference in the fight for survival.
Watford will remain largely unchanged from their defeat at Old Trafford and will look to nullify the potent attacking threat from the Liverpool front three with a flat back four and four-man midfield with Deeney and Deulofeu in attack.
Liverpool will be without their captain Jordan Henderson, whileJames Milner faces a late fitness test. Meanwhile, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain came off the bench against West Ham and is likely to start in midfield alongside Georginio Wijnaldum and Fabinho in a 4-3-3 system.
Liverpool are a constant goal threat and on the counter attack they can be deadly with the pace of Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane. Last time out, West Ham caused Liverpool problems from set-pieces and Watford will be looking to take advantage of any cracks in their usual water-tight defence.
Salah is Liverpool’s top scorer and is 6/4 to score anytime. He scored twice in the reverse tie at Anfield earlier in the season and is 4/1 to score 2 or more.
Watford have lost the past four meetings, conceding 15 times and failing to score a single goal. However, no Watford player has been more prolific under Pearson than Troy Deeney, with the striker scoring five goals in 11 Premier League appearances and is 6/1 to score first.
If you fancy Liverpool to win either half, Liverpool Over 1.5 goals in the match and Liverpool to keep a clean sheet that is 5/2 in our #GETAPRICE market.
