Watford v Liverpool Betting Tips & Predictions | English Premier League Match Preview
Vicarage Road, Watford – 12 August, 12:30.
Match Preview and Betting Tips.
Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool side travel to Watford as both sides battle at Vicarage Road to take their first three points. Watford will be extra confident after the signing of Andre Gray to the club for a club record fee of £18 million on Thursday evening. Gray scored nine league goals last season so will certainly give them an extra goal scoring dynamic up top along with captain Troy Deeney.
Liverpool meanwhile haven’t been majorly busy in the transfer market it have signed striker Dominic Solanke from Chelsea as well as main signing former Chelsea player Mohamed Salah from AS Roma and both players have impressed during pre season it is fair to say bagging a few goals each.
The big concerns for Liverpool however will be can they keep Daniel Sturridge fit and if they don’t capture the signing of Virgil Van Dijk from Southampton are they good enough at the back to compete in both the Premier League and Europe?
The most intriguing question of all though is where will Philippe Coutinho be come the end of the transfer window. The playmaker scored no fewer than thirteen goals from midfield last season despite missing almost two months of the season through various injuries. There is no doubt he will be almost impossible to replace should FC Barcelona come knocking as per the rumours as he can change big games single handedly like not many others can.
Liverpool tended to struggle in these kind of games last season and were actually at their best when they were up against the top six. It is that kind of form that has let them down time and time again in the Premier League era and they have to start getting it right if they are to break out of this bad spell.
The last time theses sides met here however Liverpool were 1-0 winner courtesy of one of the best overhead kick goals you are likely to see, from midfielder Emre Can. We are tipping Liverpool to win this fixture at Vicarage Road again here and they can be backed at 4/7 for the victory. Watford should be set up compact as they will know all too well about Liverpool’s deadly counter attacking style and we are anticipating a tight game with little space and a 1-0 Liverpool win at 7/1.
