Time: 17:30

Venue: Anfield

Channel: BT Sport 1

After losing to their fierce rivals last weekend, Liverpool dropped down to 4th place for the first time in several months after Tottenham beat Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium. After a defeat to a desperate Arsenal team, Watford will want to make sure they tighten their defence if they want to keep the score in single figures.

A victory for Liverpool would pile the pressure on Spurs, who won’t be playing Newcastle due to the FA Cup fixtures over the weekend. Since Javi Gracia took over at Watford, the London side have only lost 2 Premier League games, winning a further 3 and drawing another. This managerial appointment has proved to be crucial for Watford’s relegation battle, so much so that they now rest a safe 11 points from 18th placed Crystal Palace.

Liverpool do have the home advantage, and fans will want to see their team bounce back after last week’s defeat at the hands of Manchester United. Boasting such a strong front three will surely mean that goals fly in from everywhere.
