Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool can overtake Man City at the top of the Premier League for a few hours at least should they beat former manager Roy Hodgson’s relegation battling Watford on Saturday
Liverpool welcome Watford to Anfield on Saturday as they return to Premier League action following the international break, knowing that a win would see them move to the top of the table as they look to record their 10th successive victory.
The visitors won’t go down without a fight, however, as they look to drag themselves closer to safety, and will be aiming for a second consecutive top flight victory following a 2-1 win over Southampton in their last outing.
When is Liverpool vs Watford?
The last meeting between these two sides came in the reverse league fixture back in October, when the Reds recorded a thumping 5-0 victory over their hosts at Vicarage Road to go unbeaten in 20 consecutive games in all competitions.
First half goals from Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino had the visitors in control at half-time, before the Brazilian scored another two, either side of a Mohamed Salah strike, to complete his hattrick as Liverpool went top of the table.

Naby Keita picked up a minor knee injury ahead of international duty with Guinea last week but is expected to make a full recovery in time for Saturday, while James Milner has recovered from a bout of illness, but Trent-Alexander Arnold remains out with a hamstring injury.

As for Watford, they could be operating with a fully fit squad ahead of this fixture should their two injured players make it to full fitness in time for the trip to Anfield this weekend.
Jeremy Ngakia missed out on the victory against Southampton before the international break with a minor hamstring strain, so should be fine for this contest, while Nicolas Nkoulou could also return after previously lacking match fitness.
