Watford vs Liverpool

Watford vs Liverpool – Watford hosts Liverpool at the Vicarage Road on 12th August, Saturday in their opening game of the 2017/18 English Premier League season.

Watford just survived relegation last season by finishing seventeenth with forty points while Liverpool qualified for the UEFA Champions League after finishing fourth in a closely fought race for ‘top four’.

Liverpool have had a dismal transfer window and are in further jeopardy of losing one of their key players as Philippe Coutinho has reportedly submitted a transfer request.

“We saw a few pre-season games, so we could watch what they did. So we should be prepared as good as possible – you’re never perfectly prepared, probably. But yes, we know what we could see.

Their style of play is kind of clear, they’re a football-playing side – that’s Silva as a manager. So we know where we have to defend and where we have to use maybe one of the other spaces in our offensive play. So that’s how it is. We have all that we need to know for the moment.”

– Jurgen Klopp, Liverpool.
