We bring you all the latest form and team news from Liverpool and Watford:
Liverpool Form and Team News
Goals, fireworks, and more goals— this is a perfect description of what Liverpool’s season is shaping up to be. They have won nine matches on the bounce, kept seven clean sheets in those games, and scored 23 goals within that period. Their excellent performances of late have rekindled the title race, which was all but over in everyone’s opinion at the start of 2022.
They are 1 point off Manchester City at the top and ten ahead of third-placed Chelsea. Liverpool have scored the most goals in the league this season, with 75 goals from 21 wins, six draws, and two losses, conceding only 20 goals. Mohammed Salah leads the charts for the Reds with a league-high 20 goals and ten assists and is the favorite to win the Golden Boot award.
For suspensions, fitness, and injury news, Liverpool’s shining right-back Alexander Arnold is out with a thigh injury, and James Milner is also a doubt to feature this weekend.
Watford Form and Team News
Watford started the season brightly, but a long line of losses, draws, and underwhelming performances have seen them placed in the relegation zone, 3 points away from safety for now. When their rivals’ games in hand are factored in (2 each for Everton and Burnley), Watford are in a precarious position and will need all points they can get.
A run of 6 losses, two draws, and two wins in their last ten matches highlights poor form, and the Hornets have only eight matches to turn their season around. They have scored 29 goals in 29 matches, with six wins, four draws, and 19 losses, conceding 55. Perhaps their only bright spot has been Nigeria’s Emmanuel Dennis, who has scored nine goals and created 5 in the Premier League.
For suspensions and absences, Watford will be without the services of Nicholas N’Koulou and Jeremy Ngakia, who have muscle and thigh injuries, respectively.
