Liverpool vs Watford predictions, betting tips and preview for tonight’s Premier League fixture. Liverpool’s lead is down to a point after dropping points in three of their last four and they can’t afford more slips tonight. See our predictions and betting tips below.
The hosts have had their lead cut at the top of the Premier League table to one point in recent weeks but they’ll be expected to get three points tonight. Manchester City are also at home to West Ham (see our predictions here) so neither side will want to drop points in matches they really should win. It has been a difficult few weeks for Liverpool, with points dropped against Leicester, West Ham and Manchester United and a 0-0 draw in the Champions League tie against Bayern Munich.
Watford have been fantastic this season and come into this match with an extra two days rest and a 5-1 win over Cardiff in their last match still fresh in the memory. The first of tonight’s betting tips is for Liverpool to win and BTTS because Watford have scored in six of their last seven on the road and they’ve only lost one of those (against Spurs). We’re predicting a home win though because Jurgen Klopp will know this is an unmissable opportunity to get three points on the board and they were brilliant in their last home league fixture against Bournemouth.
Watford’s form means we’re not expecting Liverpool to run out easy winners in this match. If anything, this could be one of Liverpool’s trickiest remaining matches but with the Merseyside derby against Everton coming up at the weekend, they will know three points are vital here and that is reflected in tonight’s correct score prediction. As with the earlier betting tip, we’re predicting a Liverpool win with both teams scoring and so the bet we’re going for is a 3-1 home victory.
Watford have been involved in a few high scoring matches away from of late including a 3-3 draw with Bournemouth and 5-1 win at the weekend, so more goals should be on the agenda tonight at Anfield.
