Watford will welcome Liverpool to Vicarage Road for a matchday 8 fixture in England Premier League. The last meeting on 29th February 2020 ended in a Watford 3-0 win. Both sides have met ten times in the most recent seasons. Watford has won 2 matches, and Liverpool triumphed in 7. Recent outings average 3.70 goals, while both teams score 20% of the time.

Watford's latest fixture against Leeds United ended in an away 1-0 loss. I expected more from The Golden Boys. The lack of focus in the final third cost them three points.

Liverpool's recent game against Manchester City ended in a home 2-2 draw. One point was the maximum they could have won with that display. Liverpool pushed forward in the second half and scored in the 59th and 76th minute.

Since the start of the season, The 'Orns is more dominant at home. They have two wins out of 6 games on home soil. Although Watford is among the most solid home teams in the league, they are far from perfect. Their defence is not as good as expected with just 0% home clean sheets.

Liverpool has picked up 13 points from the previous six league games. It is quite intriguing that they prefer playing on the road. Liverpool has collected 2.17 points on average per away game, compared to 2.14 at home.

The hosts will have to work hard to get a good result. The Golden Boys has won just 33% of home games. On average they score 1.33 goals and concede 2.00 per game. Liverpool is one of the best teams in the league. On paper, they have a great squad and I expect them to make life difficult for their opponent.

The visitors have a better record and I have to back them. Watford wins on average 1.17 points per home game. I am not sure they have what it takes to compete against Liverpool. My prediction is Liverpool to win.

I expect a thrilling contest with plenty of goals. Both sides score and concede on average 3.5 goals per game. Over 2.5 goals were scored in an average of 67% of Watford's home and Liverpool's away games. My prediction is Over 2.5 Goals.
