What Trueform says for Watford vs Liverpool
Our Trueform chart suggests that Watford are more than capable of being competitive at home to Liverpool in Saturday’s Premier League clash.
This is a fixture the Hornets usually get up for, having secured a win and a draw against the Reds in the last three meetings at Vicarage Road.
With Jurgen Klopp’s side possibly distracted by Wednesday’s Champions League trip to PSG, 3/2 for the hosts to avoid defeat is our opening Watford vs Liverpool prediction.
A Look At Watford’s Betting Odds
Watford were a touch fortunate to draw 1-1 at Southampton before the international break, with Saints having a goal wrongly disallowed for offside when in front.
However, there was still a lot to like about the way the Hornets kept on battling before Jose Holebas claimed a deflected late equaliser.
Javi Gracia also felt his team should have had a penalty and declared: “In the second half, we showed character and ambition and were improving.”
Watford are well placed in seventh at this stage of the season, having secured back-to-back wins over Wolves and Huddersfield last month.
They can also boast a 2-1 home win over Tottenham this term and appear on course to stay in the top half of the table.
Troy Deeney caught the eye when returning from injury as a substitute at St Mary’s Stadium and may be worth a nibble at 3/1 to score at anytime from the Watford vs Liverpool odds.
Last Watford line-up: Foster, Mariappa, Cathcart, Kiko, Holebas, Chalobah, Doucoure, Hughes, Pereyra, Deulofeu, Success.
Watford will have midfielder Etienne Capoue available following suspension, while defender Sebastian Prodl has also been training again following his leg problem.
Venezuela forward Adalberto Penaranda has received a work permit, but is not expected to be thrown straight into action.
A Look At Liverpool’s Betting Odds
Liverpool remained just two points behind Premier League pacesetters Manchester City when recording a routine 2-0 triumph over Fulham at Anfield.
Mo Salah made it five goals in six games with the opener and Xherdan Shaqiri again looked a shrewd summer acquisition with a well-taken second.
However, the Reds were again below their free-flowing best and enjoyed a bit of good fortune when Aleksandar Mitrovic had a header disallowed for a borderline offside call just before Salah struck.
Salah once more showed his individual well-being when grabbing a last-minute winner as Egypt beat Tunisia 3-2 in an African Nations Cup qualifier.
But he and the Reds could be forgiven for having one eye on the upcoming trip to Paris, with away defeats at Napoli and Red Star putting the Merseyside outfit under pressure in that competition.
With that in mind, we believe a draw is overpriced at 333/100 here and that outcome is added to our Watford vs Liverpool betting tips.
Last Liverpool line-up: Alisson, Van Dijk, Gomez, Robertson, Alexander-Arnold, Fabinho, Wijnaldum, Shaqiri, Firmino, Mane, Salah.
Captain Jordan Henderson returns to Liverpool’s squad after overcoming a hamstring injury, but Adam Lallana is ruled out following a minor knock in training.
Southampton 1-1 WATFORD – Jose Holebas
LIVERPOOL 2-0 Fulham – Mohamed Salah, Xherdan Shaqiri
Head-to-head: Liverpool 5-0 Watford, Watford 3-3 Liverpool, Watford 0-1 Liverpool, Liverpool 6-1 Watford, Liverpool 2-0 Watford, Watford 3-0 Liverpool
