Liverpool vs Watford Betting Preview | 14 Dec 2019

Securing their spot in the knockout stage of this year’s Champions League in midweek, Liverpool will look to widen their buffer at the top of the Premier League standings when they welcome Watford to Anfield on Saturday lunchtime.

Eventually picking up a 2-0 win away at Red Bull Salzburg on Tuesday night, Jurgen Klopp’s side have won their last four matches across all competitions and are yet to taste defeat domestically since opening the 2019/2020 campaign.

On the flip side, while there might be a party atmosphere in the red half of Merseyside, Watford still find themselves in a real battle at the foot of the table.

Despite grabbing a scrappy point against Crystal Palace last time out, the Hornets have failed to win any of their last four Premier League matches on the bounce, losing three of those appearances.

You might be interested to know that Liverpool have won each of their last three matches against Saturday’s guests, including back-to-back 5-0 wins at Anfield. An identical scoreline can be found pencilled in at 18/1 with Bet365 for this weekend.

Liverpool march on

With a spot in the knockout stage of this year’s Champions League confirmed and also landing a 3-0 win away at Bournemouth last weekend, the mood in Jurgen Klopp’s camp has continued to skyrocket.

Continuing to shine at Anfield much like last season, the former BVB boss has seen his side win their last 15 Premier League matches on home soil and have not tasted domestic defeat in front of their own supporters since April 2017.

Unsurprisingly, yet to taste defeat in the top-flight and no side across England’s footballing tiers boasting a better run of form nearing closer to Christmas, the Reds are seen as a landslide favourite to the claim their first Premier League crown next year.

Klopp’s men are already priced as low as 1/7 with Ladbrokes to come out on top this season.

After finding the net on foreign soil in midweek, former PFA Player of the Year Mohamed Salah has now bagged strikes in back-to-back appearances and will once again lead the line this weekend.

Relishing Watford’s trip to Anfield on Saturday lunchtime, Salah can be found pencilled in at 8/13 with Coral to make it a trio of strikes on home soil.

Watford on course for a Championship return

Despite managing to scrape a 0-0 draw against Crystal Palace last weekend, Watford have continued on what has been a season to forget.

Once again parting ways with another boss earlier in the month and now turning to Nigel Pearson in an attempt to steady the ship, the one-time Leicester boss finds his side sat rock-bottom of the standings.

Sat six points adrift of safety, the guests can be found as low as 1/4 with Ladbrokes to be hit with a Championship return next year.

A huge part of Watford’s continued issues since opening the 2019/2020 campaign has been their continued toothless displays in the final third.

Despite recalling skipper Troy Deeney for their past two matchups, the Hornets have scored just a single goal in each of their previous four Premier League matches on the bounce and no side in the Premier League has scored fewer than Watford’s nine goals this season.

You might be interested to know that Saturday’s guests can be found priced at 5/6 with 888sport to draw yet another blank this weekend.
