Our expert made a prediction for the match of English Premier League Watford – Liverpool.
“Watford” after an impressive period again stopped gaining points and stays in 19th place. The team can’t win five games in a row, and the last one lost 0-3 at Old Trafford. They also lost in two more matches: Aston Villa and Everton, but decisive goals were conceded in 90+ minutes. With Brighton (1: 1), the advantage was also lost at the end of second half. At home, Watford has conceded just four goals in the last six games, three of them from Everton, but now Liverpool forwards are in such a shape that it’s hard to hope for a clean sheet for Foster, with all due respect to an experienced keeper.
Liverpool conceded from West Ham two times more than in the past 11 Premier League games. They hardly allow this happen second match in a row. Six meetings of the Premier League out of 9 ended for Liverpool with a total under 2.5. Merseysiders are on a slight decline in defense, but is the Hornet attack able to pose serious problems for the guests? Remember the first match of these teams when Watford missed some excellent chances to score. But still, it will be difficult for the Hornets to score, given their not the best shape right now.
Liverpool is outstanding to interrupt the series with the team, which stays in 19th place and does not win five matches in a row.
Prediction: Liverpool victory with a handicap (-1)
