Watford vs Liverpool: prediction for the EPL fixture
Watford welcome Liverpool to Vicarage Road on Saturday, October 16 in the English Premier League. Do the hosts have a chance? Our answer is in the prediction below.
Watfordperformed brilliantly in the Championship last season and got promoted to the elite. The team was off to a good start, but soon it became apparent that they lack the strength and class to fight against the top English teams. On October 4, Claudio Ranieri took over as head coach and this game will be his debut as the manager of Watford.
The Hornets' performance in the League Cup ended with a defeat from Stoke City (1:3). Before that, Watford defeated Crystal Palace (1:0).
After seven rounds of the current Premier League season, the Hornets have 7 points (2 victories and 1 draw) and are occupying the 15th line in the standings. In the last rounds, Watford triumphed over Norwich (3:1), drew with Newcastle (1:1), and lost to Leeds (0:1).
Watford have a few injury concerns. Kabasele, Sierralta, Etebo, and King will not be able to enter the field today.
Jurgen Klopp's charges started off confidently in the new football season. Liverpool finished third last year, which brought them a ticket to the Champions League, where the Reds got a brilliant victory over AC Milan in the opening game (3:2). In the second round, Liverpool crushed Porto with a score of 5:1. After the first two games, Liverpool top the group table with 6 points and 8 goals scored.
Liverpool are unbeaten in the Premier League. They have earned 15 points (4 victories and 3 draws) and are now occupying 2nd place in the table. After crushing Crystal Palace a few weeks ago (3:0), the Reds drew with Brentford (3:3) and Manchester City (2:2).
Elliott, Alexander-Arnold, Alcantara, and Jota are sidelined and won't be able to help their team today.
In 3 of the last 6 head-to-head games, goals were scored in both halves.
This bet played in 2 of the last 4 games of Liverpool.
This bet played in 4 of the last 6 games of Liverpool.
Liverpool scored in 2 of the last 3 head-to-head games.
Watford will play their first game under the new head coach. This should give them extra motivation. Plus, the Hornets have the support of the stands. Liverpool are in good form, but Klopp will probably choose to rest some of his key players due to a Champions League game on Tuesday. But in any lineup, the Reds are head and shoulders above the Hornets.
Our prediction - Asian handicap (-1.5) to Liverpool
Prediction: Handicap (-1.5) to Liverpool
