Liverpool vs Watford

The draw against Manchester United in the last round helped Liverpool regain the top spot from Man City. Currently, The Kop is leading the charts with 66 points and more than 1 point in Manchester City. The championship race became more and more demanding that the Red Brigade had to really focus on achieving the championship goal after several decades of waiting.

The Red Brigade is still unbeaten, but having won only two wins and to draw the remaining four matches in the last six matches shows that Klopp's army is showing signs of instability. They have to strain in both the domestic and continental arenas, so it is understandable that being unable to maintain the peak like the previous rounds. The fragile distance from the direct opponent makes Liverpool really need a victory to revive the morale of the players and continue to nurture the confidence in the fans. 

In this round, the Red Brigade will play at home and welcome the guest named Watford. With the support of fans at Anfield, Liverpool are still playing well at home with 4 wins out of the last 5 visitors in the Premier League. However, when the form is no longer destructive, having suffered a loss of force when the Firmino striker is injured, Liverpool predict that it will be difficult to win a victory against Watford. 

Watford is currently playing fairly well. In the last 12 games in the Premier League, The Hornets have only lost twice - and those are failures against Big 6 teams (Chelsea and Tottenham). Currently, teachers and coaches Javi Gracia are ranked seventh in the league with 40 points, but less than the top 6 Chelsea to 10 points.

Although Liverpool are facing many problems, Watford may be subjective in this trip. Liverpool was their best when The Kop did not lose to Watford during the last two Premier League seasons. The last time they met was in the first leg, the Red Brigade defeated Watford with a score of 3-0. And the last time, Watford was still beaten by The Kop for 5 goals. Therefore, in the match tonight, Liverpool may not be able to win against such destruction, but a victory is still within reach of Klopp and his students.
