Jurgen Klopp’s Reds are heavy-favourites to beat Javi Gracia’s Hornets in the weekend’s Premier League clash and our tipster fancies goals at Anfield

Champions League challengers Liverpool host tenth-placed Watford on Saturday teatime in the Premier League.

The Reds are 1/8 (1.13) in bet365's latest top four betting while their visitors are 4/7 (1.57) to achieve a top half finish, and victory here would significantly help either side meet their respective targets.

Latest odds

Liverpool are 1/6 (1.17) to record an 18th league victory of the campaign and inflict on Watford a ninth away defeat in 10 in all competitions.

The Hornets are 6/1 (7.0) to escape Merseyside with a point or 14/1 (15.0) to become the first visiting team to win a league match at Anfield since Crystal Palace 11 months ago.

Team News

Adam Lallana is set to miss at least two more weeks after aggravating his thigh injury in the 2-1 loss at Manchester United, whilst Nathaniel Clyne could make a return to the bench.

Watford will be without eight players including midfielder Tom Cleverley,Gerard Deulofeu, Younes Kaboul, Nathaniel Chalobah and Jerome Sinclair.

Goal glut for the Reds?

Liverpool have scored four or more goals in two of their last four games against teams outside the top six.

They can be found at 7/4 (2.75) to score over 3.5 goals against the Hornets, who have shipped 25 goals in eight encounters with top six opposition and have taken just a solitary away point in 2018.

Preview and predictions

14 of Liverpool’s 24 competitive victories in 2017-18 have come by a margin of three or more goals, so backing the 6/5 (2.20) on them winning with the -2 handicap makes sense here.

Odds correct at the time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.​
