Liverpool vs Watford
England – Premier League
Date: Wednesday, 27th February 2019
Kick-off at 20.00 UK/ 21.00 CET
Venue: Anfield (Liverpool).
Ah! Liverpool and the Premier League. Football’s favorite ‘Will they? Won’t they?’ couple. After the blistering run, the team had in the first half of the season, Manchester City has caught up with them. As of now, just one point separates the Reds at the top, and it’s crunch time. If they want to deliver on their promise, the squad must deliver in each and every one of their eleven remaining ties, starting with this one.
Things might not be easy though. Watford is hugely buoyed by their terrific away win the last day, against Cardiff. The 1-5 scoreline had Gerard Deulofeu on the scorecard three times and will spearhead his team’s attack at Anfield. Virgil Van Dijk and co will have to pull in extra shifts to keep the visitors at bay, but knowing the Dutch wall’s consistency, he might be up to the task.
The last five wins in a row belong to Liverpool.
So do ten of the last twelve wins in h2h ties.
The Reds managed to find the back of the net in 10 of their last 11 meetings.
The team has a 100% winning record at Anfield in the 21st century.
Liverpool scored two or more goals in their last five home ties.
The fearsome chase currently being given by Per Guardiola’s side will spring Liverpool into action. One more occasion of losing the Premier League trophy is just unthinkable to them, and they might be the only team in Europe who would prefer the league title over Champions League triumph. Such is what the fans and players have been through, the last three decades.
The team has a 100% winning record in h2h ties against Watford at the Anfield in the 21st century. They have also scored 15 goals in their last four such meetings at this same venue. In addition, the Reds have recorded ten of the last eleven overall h2h wins and registered three or more goals in their last three meetings, and two or more in six of the last eight.
