Liverpool’s now long-standing habit of scoring late goals has bailed them out once again, with Sadio Mane’s second-half brace ensuring the points at West Ham.
That result saw them equal Man City’s record of 18 wins on the bounce and it’s now 44 games unbeaten as they’ve won 35 of the last 36, with the exception away at Old Trafford.
They can guarantee the title with victories in their next four fixtures against bottom-half outfits Watford, Bournemouth, Everton and Palace, before their trip to the Etihad in early April, so there only appears one realistic outcome here.
Liverpool To Beat Watford To Nil
The Hornets’ 3-0 defeat away to United on Sunday leaves them winless in five league outings as they’ve lost three of the past four, while in addition they’ve been dumped out of the FA Cup by League One side Tranmere in 2020.
Having conceded nine times in four league games now, while Liverpool haven’t failed to score since a Merseyside derby nearly 12 months ago, we doubt the champions elect are going to struggle carving out opportunities.
Liverpool have won the past four head-to-heads by a combined 15-0 since signing Virgil van Dijk, with the Dutchman playing all of those games.
Given they won all of these matches by at least two clear goals and by a minimum of three strikes in all but one of them, they appear well placed to cover the handicap.
However, they did fail to achieve that on the road at Norwich a fortnight ago as they could only muster a 1-0 success, and having won without conceding in 10 of their past 12 games, including five of six on their travels, the win to nil is more appetising at the bigger price.
Mo Salah To Score Anytime
Mo Salah has scored more goals against Watford than any other team, with eight in five appearances as he found the net in both away games, as well as a brace in the reverse fixture this season.
His recent form has been good too with six goals across his past eight in the league, and he’ll almost certainly get the nod to start despite Liverpool’s heavy schedule as Jurgen Klopp rarely rotates his star front three.
Given Watford have conceded 17 goals in six matches against the top five in the league, while they’ve conceded at least twice in 11 of their 12 matches against the current top four and last season’s top four combined, Salah should find chances coming his way.
