Liverpool v Watford Betting Predictions and Match Preview

Liverpool host Watford in matchday 31 of the Premier League on Saturday 17th March, 5:30pm at Anfield. The hosts currently sit in 4th place in the table having lost against Manchester United 2-1 last time out, while the visitors are in 10th after their 3-0 loss against Arsenal.

Anfield has become a real fortress for the Reds in recent times, with Jürgen Klopp’s charges now unbeaten in 17 Premier League matches in front of their own supporters, so it comes as no surprise to see them starting as heavy 79% favourites against opponents who have collected just five points from a possible 36 on the road recently.

Last Season's Score
It took Sadio Mane 27 minutes to break the deadlock in this fixture last season, with our KickOff predictive algorithm rating the chances of the Senegalese forward striking first in this encounter at 19%, but the floodgates opened after that as Liverpool ran out 6-1 winners.

Team News For Liverpool
The Reds have virtually everyone fit and available for this match, so Jordan Henderson is expected to come back into the starting XI after only being deemed fit enough for the bench at Old Trafford.

Team News For Watford
Former Derby midfielder Will Hughes has made a couple of substitute appearances since returning from injury, so it will be interesting to see whether or not Javi Gracia feels he is ready to start this game.

First Goal Scorer Betting Predictions
Between them, Mo Salah (27% chance) and Roberto Firmino (21% chance) boast 37 Premier League goals in the current campaign, so either member of this attacking duo is more than capable of breaking the deadlock here.

This clash will take place at Anfield at 5:30pm on Saturday 17th March and will be broadcast live on BT Sport 1. Highlights will be shown on Match of the Day later that evening at 10:20pm.
