Watford have had trouble getting points this season. Will the team get some points when Liverpool stop by Vicarage Road?

Insights:
  • Watford have failed to keep a clean sheet in all their matches.

There should be plenty of energy on the pitch in this game, as both sides have had time to recuperate from their last game. Let's hope both teams are ready to give it all.

Watford form and stats

Watford have played 3 Premier League games at their own stadium so far this season, resulting in 1-1-1 (wins-draws-losses).

Watford are hoping to put things right at home after a defeat in their previous match, the score 0-1 away versus Leeds United. Juraj Kucka (midfield was the top team player in that game with a rating of 7.61/10.

Before that, Watford drew at home versus Newcastle United.

The Watford fans would probably like to see some more goals scored at their own stadium in the league, the tally being 4 in 3 matches. With more than 1,5 conceded goals on average, the Watford defense is not exactly impregnable. 5 goals conceded from 3 games. You can find more goal stats on the Statistics tab above.

Liverpool form and stats

The seven points Liverpool have gathered from their first three away trips in the Premier League is impressive and could lead to great things if the form continues.

There were no winners in Liverpool's previous match, a Premier League home game that ended 2-2 vs Manchester City (placed 3rd). The attacker Mohamed Salah got a match rating of 8.84 in that game. Salah scored one goal, served one assist, hit two key passes and dribled past the opponent 5 of 8 times.

Preceding that game was the away Champions League victory against Porto with the score of 5-1.

Liverpool have another fixture that requires travelling in just three sleeps, a Champions League game versus Atletico Madrid. A difficult diary for the guests!

The prediction for this game is lots of goals as Liverpool alone have scored more than three on average in their league games away (9 from 3 played). As opposed to that, Liverpool have seen the ball go into their own net 3 times on the road.

Head 2 Head

H2H stats regardless of arena (last ten matches): Watford two wins, one draw and Liverpool seven victories. As for goals, seven matches ended with three or more goals (over 2,5), three games had two or less.
