Liverpool remained just two points behind Premier League pacesetters Manchester City when recording a routine 2-0 triumph over Fulham at Anfield. As visitors, they have record holders at Vicarage Road. In their 5 Premier League visits here, they have won 3 and drawn once. Mo Salah made it five goals in six games with the opener and Xherdan Shaqiri again looked a shrewd summer acquisition with a well-taken second. However, the Reds were again below their free-flowing best and enjoyed a bit of good fortune when Aleksandar Mitrovic had a header disallowed for a borderline offside call just before Salah struck.
Watford was a touch fortunate to draw 1-1 at Southampton before the international break, with Saints having a goal wrongly disallowed for offside when in front. They can also boast a 2-1 home win over Tottenham this term and appear on course to stay in the top half of the table. Watford will have midfielder Etienne Capoue available following suspension, while defender Sebastian Prodl has also been training again following his leg problem.
Watford: Foster, Mariappa, Cathcart, Kiko, Holebas, Chalobah, Doucoure, Hughes, Pereyra, Deulofeu, Success.
Liverpool: Alisson, Van Dijk, Gomez, Robertson, Alexander-Arnold, Fabinho, Wijnaldum, Shaqiri, Firmino, Mane, Salah.
My PlayerzPot XI:
Liverpool stands strong and has chances to dominate Watford. But a draw is definitely on the cards with both the teams scoring one goal each.
