This afternoon, Jurgen Klopp’s side are in Hertfordshire taking on Watford in a Premier League fixture.
As far as the Premier League goes, Liverpool are unbeaten but still lag behind the table-topping Manchester City, courtesy of a couple of draws.
However, the last two fixtures, before the third international break of the season, saw Liverpool’s form falter with the side losing in Belgrade, in the Champions League, then struggling to overcome a Fulham side who are bottom of the Premier League table.
Today, at Vicarage Road, we’ll be looking for a performance that signals the team is back on track.
Ahead of the game, we used our poll facility to gauge how those who visit our site predict the game will go.
However, we won’t concentrate too much on the result as 67% voted for a Watford win, which, to me, infers the poll may have been hacked by visitors from the Hornets site.
Instead, as far as the predicted outcome of the game goes, we’ll take a look at how the former Liverpool defender, Mark Lawrenson, in his regular BBC, as it makes better, but not that much, reading.
Lawrenson is predicting that the game will end in a draw, 1-1, remarking:
“The Reds are obviously not the only team who have seen all their players disappear on international duty over the past fortnight but Jurgen Klopp has an important Champions League match at Paris St-Germain on Wednesday to think about too, which complicates things a little bit for the weekend.
“Taking all of that into consideration, I am going to go for a draw. I just have the feeling Watford will be lying in wait for them, and they will see Liverpool as a scalp – just like they did with Spurs when they beat them in September.”
Watford have had a decent start to the season and are currently sitting in seventh place in the table, above Manchester United, is this fixture a banana-skin for Liverpool?
