Buoyed by news that Pep Guardiola’s men were held, Jurgen Klopp will emphasise that there can be no slip-ups at Vicarage Road. For that matter, picking up a third successive away win for only the second time under the German will be vital for the Reds making up for their 2-1 home reverse against Crystal Palace last time out.
Liverpool will have to be on full alert in defence come Monday’s trip as Watford are capable of punishing any insecurities at the back on their guests’ part. But should things go awry, the Anfield outfit will be aware that they are capable of producing at the other end and outscoring all but the most defensive-minded sides.
The loss of Sadio Mane has hurt but not as badly as first expected, with Philippe Coutinho netting in four of his last five Premier League appearances and out to add to the strike he notched in the reverse fixture on Merseyside back in November. Meanwhile, leading the line will be Roberto Firmino, who has had a hand in four goals in his last two Premier League matches against Watford with two goals and two assists.
Liverpool are so close now to securing the target of returning to the Champions League and will come out with guns blazing aware of the boost three points on Monday will give to their ambitions of returning to playing amongst Europe’s elite, making 6/1 (7.0) odds on an away win for new Paddy Power customers unbeatable value.
