CLOSE!

56′ Liverpool 1-0 Watford

It’s a massive chance missed by the visitors. Sarr gets in behind Matip and pulls it back for Pedro, who fires it just wide. The Liverpool players seemed to be waiting for an offside flag to go up!

lack of quality

54′ Liverpool 1-0 Watford

The start to this half has lacked quality. Salah unsuccessfully attempts to get past Kamara, who gets it out for a corner. Van Djik fights off Sissoko, but his header goes wide of the bar.

Great defending

47′ Liverpool 1-0 Watford

That’s great defending. Gomez delivers yet another superb cross from the right. Robertson looked set to get a head on it at the back post but Kabasele gets there in the nick of time to get it away for a corner.

Jota’s goal

Jota’s goal is the difference at half-time. How about that for a cross from Gomez? Almost Alexander-Arnold-esque!

Unhappy Klopp

41′ Liverpool 1-0 Watford

Jurgen Klopp doesn’t look like a happy man on the touchline. Despite being ahead, Liverpool have lacked cutting edge and have been sloppy, giving Watford a number of opportunities to get on the scoresheet.

CLOSE!

38′ Liverpool 1-0 Watford

Robertson slices a shot from the edge of the box and it takes a touch off Matip and towards Jota at the back post but he is denied by Foster. Rolling it back to Henderson might’ve been the better option there.

great play

30′ Liverpool 1-0 Watford

The hosts move the ball well in the middle of the park. Thiago finds Firmino, who plays Robertson in. Sissoko comes across and slides in to get the ball away. Liverpool are unable to take advantage of the resulting corner.

Liverpool Enjoy Possession

27′ Liverpool 1-0 Watford

Watford will feel hard done by. Up until that goal they looked to be the better side but that’s football for you. Liverpool are currently enjoying the lion’s share of possession in a search for a second goal.

GOAL – Jack scores

Jota blazes it over

16′ Liverpool 0-0 Watford

Robertson attempts to play a long one to Salah but Kamara intercepts and heads it towards the path of Jota. He sees Foster slightly off his line but his effort from long range goes well over.

CLOSE!

12′ Liverpool 0-0 Watford

It’s not backs against the wall for the visitors so far and they’re creating some half chances. Hernandez jumps higher than Robertson from a corner but his header from him at the near post is straight at Alisson.

First Watford chance

6′ Liverpool 0-0 Watford

First sight of goal for Watford. A long ball is played out from the back towards Sarr. The Senegalese forward catches the half-volley sweetly but it sails over the bar. Not bad at all.

not long to go

With the players now approaching from the tunnel at Anfield, we’re now just moments away from kick-off.

Will Liverpool continue with their brilliant run of form? Or will Watford cause a major upset in their battle to avoid the drop?

Alisson’s pre-match thoughts

Speaking to BT Sport, Alisson said: “[The international break] was good for me. We had a good performance from my team as well. It’s good for the team to have a week of training before the match. It’s not something we get often. We are focused and this is a big match for us.

“The Premier League is always full of surprises. We know that. We respect the opponent a lot because they deserve it. To respect them is by going on the pitch and playing 100% to give our best football.”
