Betting Tips and Predictions: Watford vs Liverpool, Premier League. In the first Round of Premier League, Watford host Liverpool at Vicarage Road. Read below betting preview, betting tips, useful info and betting predictions for the match between Watford vs Liverpool.
Watford finished the last season one place above the relegation zone and stayed in Premier League, so for this season they have the same goal – to avoid relegation and stay in the best football league in England. In the preparing period they have played few games and made very good results. They beat Plzen and Eibar with the same result 1-0, while matches against Real Sociedad and Aston Villa ended up without goals. Interesting fact is that Watford haven’t conceded a single goal in the last four friendly games, so they hope that can save their net against Liverpool. Home side brought few very good players such as Nathaniel Chalobah (Chelsea FC), Tom Cleverley (Everton), Richarlison (Fluminense) and Andre Gray (Burnley), so they believe that new acquisitions will bring them enough quality to avoid relegation. The match against Liverpool will be the real test for Watford and without any doubt home team would be satisfied with one point.
Liverpool finished the last season in Premier League at the 4th position and their main goal for this season is to reach the Top 4. On Tuesday they will play against Hoffenheim in the play-off for the Champions League and that match is more important for them, but it doesn’t mean that they don’t want three points against Watford. Last season Liverpool beat Watford in both Premier league games (6-1, 0-1), so they hope that can make another good performance and take all three points. In the last test game they beat Athletic Bilbao 3-1 and showed that they are ready for the upcoming challenges in all competitions. Interesting fact is that Firmino scored from penalty, despite the fact that Milner was in squad, which can mean that Jürgen Klopp switched those two players and Firmino became the first option for penalties. Coutinho will probably miss this game, so Salah and Mane will play behind Brazilian attacker. Visitors have very strong squad, but we will see are they capable to win in the first official match of the season.
Home side miss Zarate, while Kabasele and Deeney are both doubtful. On the other side, visitors will be without Lallana, while Clyne and Coutinho are both doubtful.
Watford vs Liverpool Predicted Lineups
Watford: Gomes, Kaboul, Prodl, Holebas, Janmaat, Doucoure, Chalobah, Cleverly, Success, Pereyra, Gray.
Liverpool: Mignolet, Lovren, Matip, Alexander-Arnold, Milner, Henderson, Can, Wijnaldum, Mane, Salah, Firmino.
Watford vs Liverpool Prediction
Home side will be fully motivated against very strong visitors and every result, except their loss, would be a big success for them. Visitors want to fight for the top of the table and they have to make a good start and take all three points. I expect interesting match between Watford vs Liverpool and believe that visitors will find the way to take all three points.
