Watford vs Liverpool prediction: How will Premier League match play out today?

It looked to have been a mini-revival for Watford under new boss Nigel Pearson when the Hornets manager took thirteen points from his first six games in charge.

Before Pearson took over, Watford looked dead and buried at the foot of the Premier League, some seven points adrift of safety.

But the Hornets are without a league win in six, when they beat Bournemouth 3-0 away from home - a winless run which sees Watford in big trouble again as they face the prospect of losing their Premier League status.

And it doesn’t get any easier for Watford. Games are running out and next up is the champions elect Liverpool, who beat them 2-0 last time out at Anfield, in what was Nigel Pearson’s first game in charge.

Pearson’s side will have to do something they have never managed to do before, beat Liverpool. The Hornets have lost a club record nineteen top flight games against the Reds.

It is difficult to see anything other than a routine victory for Klopp’s side, as they move closer to the Premier League crown – which is just four wins away.

Here’s everything you need to know:
