Liverpool vs Watford is the next match in the Premier League as Liverpool push for the title with relegation threatened Watford visiting Anfield.

Liverpool vs Watford: Match Preview:

The Reds signed off for international duty by sealing their place in the semi-finals of the FA Cup with a 1-0 win over Nottingham Forest, leaving Jurgen Klopp's side still in the mix for the quadruple.

Watford, meanwhile, arrested their winless run with a 2-1 success at Southampton earlier this month, although they still trail 17th-placed Everton by three points having played two games more.

Team News:


Liverpool defender Trent Alexander-Arnold is fighting to recover from his hamstring injury in time for Saturday's game, but the midweek encounter with Benfica is a more realistic aim for the Premier League's leading creator.

Naby Keita will need assessing after pulling out of international duty with a "minor" knee issue, but James Milner and Andy Robertson are expected to be available again following recent COVID-19 infections.

With Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane both going the distance in their pivotal World Cup qualifier, Klopp may elect to rotate a tad for Saturday's game, with Liverpool facing an unforgiving run of fixtures over the Easter period.


As for Watford, Jeremy Ngakia was once again absent for the Southampton win but should be fine to return here, while Nicolas Nkoulou could also apply for a place in the squad.

Hodgson may be tempted to bring in another defender or two to try to keep the scoreline respectable, but the veteran boss has little reason to alter the winning formula from St Mary's.

Such a setup would see Joao Pedro and Emmanuel Dennis join Hernandez in the final third, but Ismaila Sarr returned from injury for Senegal during the international break and could force his way in.
