How Liverpool should line up against Watford

Shaqiri Liverpool

Liverpool have earned 30 points from 12 PL fixtures so far, still, they are 2 points behind league leaders Manchester City in the table.

The Merseysiders have won three of their last four league games and they defeated Fulham 2-0 at Anfield in the last contest. Next up, the Reds will collide against Watford on Saturday and Klopp will be looking to continue the winning run.

The Hornets are 7th in the table, they have won two of their last four fixtures in the PL and they could only get a single point vs the Saints in their last game.

Liverpool’s team news:

Liverpool do not face any suspension concerns at the moment. However, as far as the injuries are concerned, Henderson faces a race against time to be fit for the clash vs Watford (Liverpool Echo). On the other hand, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is still recovering from his long term knee injury.

Predicted lineup:

In the fullback positions, Alexander-Arnold set up Liverpool’s first goal vs Fulham and Robertson provided the assist for the second goal. The duo should retain their places in the starting XI.

Van Dijk scored a last minute volley vs Germany to send the Netherlands to the UEFA Nations League finals. He should start with Gomez in the central defense in front of Brazilian shot stopper Alisson.

As far as the midfield is concerned, if Henderson is out injured then Fabinho should get the nod to start in the defensive midfield role. Wijnaldum should  partner the Brazilian in the center of the park. The Dutch international scored a goal for the national side vs France and featured for 60 minutes vs Germany last night.

In the attacking third, Shaqiri should start with the likes of Mane, Salah and Firmino. The Swiss star has scored two goals in his last three league games for Liverpool and he was impressive for the national side against Belgium during the international break.
