Liverpool hosts Watford in a Premier League battle on Saturday 2nd April at Anfield. Liverpool will try to pass Manchester City for first place. Liverpool is on a 9-game winning streak and is set to continue playing an offensive approach. Watford is desperate for points to avoid the relegation zone. However, they shouldn’t be hunting for them against Liverpool, which is in the Premier League title race.
Liverpool, who had previously appeared to be out of contention for the Premier League title, has found a new drive and is now only a point behind Manchester City. It all began following the defeat to Leicester. Liverpool won against Brentford and Crystal Palace, which enabled them to stay in the title race.
On the other hand, Watford hoped to pull off a huge surprise in this matchup instead. They are now ranked 18th in the league with just six wins to their record, compared to 18 defeats. In addition, they may go at it full force without any restraints, which could spur them on to better results.
