Watford Preview – Can Claudio get off to a winning start?

Xisco Munoz is the latest manager to have a short stint in charge at Watford. The sacking was another harsh one, as the Hornets hover above the bottom three after seven games. Overall, Watford have won two, lost four and drawn one.

With Munoz relieved of his duties, the club have opted for experienced, as Claudio Ranieri, who turns 70 next week, has taken over in Hertfordshire. Ranieri has previously managed in the Premier League with Chelsea, Leicester City and Fulham. His greatest achievement was, of course, guiding the Foxes to the PL title in 2016.

Our betting prediction:
Liverpool to win to nil

Bet at 22Bet


(odds taken 1018 GMT, Friday 15 October)

Watford are on seven points after seven matches, four points clear of the bottom three. Ranieri will be hoping to lift the Hornets up the table early doors, starting with a positive result against Liverpool at the weekend. The home victory is available at 8/1.

Liverpool Preview – Reds to return to Merseyside with all three points?

Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool are the only unbeaten side remaining in this season’s Premier League. The Reds have been solid so far, winning four and drawing three of their opening seven. They sit second behind Chelsea with 15 points to their name.

Liverpool will want all three points at Vicarage Road after drawing their last two. They were held to a 3-3 draw at Brentford in their last away league match. After that, the Merseysiders drew 2-2 with Manchester City in a thriller at Anfield.

When these two teams last met, Watford stunned Liverpool with a deserved 3-0 victory at Vicarage Road. Liverpool were unbeaten at the time in the 2019-20 season, but an Ismaila Sarr brace and a Troy Deeney effort gave the Hornets the points. The reverse match at Anfield that season ended 2-0 to Liverpool, with Mohamed Salah scoring twice.

Before the shock result in February 2020, Liverpool had won the previous four meetings, scoring 15 and conceding none.
