      Watford 3-0 Liverpool: In game and Post Match discussion
      Feb 29, 2020 04:30:35 pm







      Vicarage Road waiting to welcome the World Champions










      Starting XI: Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Lovren, Van Dijk, Robertson, Fabinho, Wijnaldum, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Mane, Salah, Firmino.

      Subs: Adrian, Minamino, Lallana, Origi, Matip, Jones, Hoever.

      Liverpool make two changes for tonight’s game at Vicarage Road.

      Dejan Lovren comes in for Joe Gomez, who is ruled out as a precaution due to a minor fitness issue, while Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain takes the place of Naby Keita, who is absent due to a sore hip.

      I assume Gomez is injured if so I would have preferred Matip.

      Is Gomez injured or just rested? Thought he’d be on the bench if it’s the latter.

      Lovren should be up to the task, AOC in for Keita again not a surprise.

      Ox back in. Lovren OK with that but I'm sure one or two...thousand wanted Joel in. On the front foot and kill them off quickly I hope.

      Keep an eye on Deulofeu..fancies himself.

      He has a chance to start again vs. Chelsea midweek but I doubt he'll be ready.

      Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane are each closing in on a feat last achieved for Liverpool in 2002-03 as the Premier League leaders head to Watford.

      Salah is one goal away from registering 20 strikes in all competitions for the third consecutive season, while Mane needs three more this term to do the same, after both scored in Monday’s 3-2 home win over West Ham United.

      The last Reds player to hit the milestone three campaigns in a row was Michael Owen.

      The Reds have won 12 of the last 14 meetings with Watford home and away in all competitions – and 15 of the last 18.

      The two clubs have yet to produce a goalless draw in league meetings, with all 25 of those clashes coming in the top flight.

      Salah, who made his debut for the club at Vicarage Road in August 2017, has struck eight league goals against Watford in his five Liverpool appearances – more than he has scored against any other side. Only Ian Rush (10 in 11) has a better record for the Reds against this opponent.

      Salah’s goal against the Hammers on Monday took him to 69 in the league for the Reds. Only Luis Suarez, of all Liverpool’s overseas players, has scored as many as the Egyptian in the Premier League era.

      Roberto Firmino has scored on each of his last two visits to Watford. Rush, again, is the only man to have netted for the Reds on three successive league trips to Vicarage Road (1984-86).

      Trent Alexander-Arnold’s first away league goal for the Reds came on this ground last season.

      Jürgen Klopp’s side are undefeated in 44 league games, amassing 122 points in that run. Only one team – Arsenal – have ever gone on a longer run in the history of English football (49 matches in 2003-04).

      A win today would see Liverpool equal the club record of 13 away league victories in a season, previously achieved on three occasions, the latest being last term.

      Fabinho has not been on the losing team in any of the 34 Premier League fixtures he has started, while Naby Keita has never experienced defeat in the division (also 34 games).

      This will be the eighth time the Reds have played on February 29 in history. The last saw them draw 2-2 at Leeds United in 2004. They have won three of the previous seven, but not since 1956.

      Since Nigel Pearson took charge of the Hornets, they have won four, drawn five and lost five of 14 games in league and cup.

      Pearson has managed against Liverpool four times in his career, twice previously with Leicester City and once with Derby County, in addition to the reverse fixture at Anfield in December. He has yet to win, drawing once (with Leicester at Anfield in January 2015) and losing the other three.

      Bit of a blow not having Gomez, but I’m sure Lovren will be fine although not as pacy, Watford will see this as a boost and can see them targeting Dejan, set pieces will be interesting if they weren’t already, still should have more than enough to see us through.

      Interesting to see Hoever on the bench, he’ll be chuffed and give him confidence especially if he gets game time.

      Troy Deeney talking about us: "I've watched them a few times this season, including against West Ham on Monday. And never at any point did I think they weren't going to win that game.

      "The word that always comes to mind is 'relentless'. If it's not the full-backs coming, it's the front three, and if you're able to keep out the waves of attacks then don't concede a corner because then it's the centre-backs."


      Well said, Troy Deeney, well said. Now go easy on the kebabs, like.

      With Gomez and Milner out I guess we were short of cover at fullback.

      Lovren to score!

      Would have preferred Matip over Lovren, think Lovren tends to struggle more against the more physical type of players like Deeney.

      Don’t like Deeney but he regularly seems to be speaking highly of us and some of our players.

      I must confess I like Lovren he had been doing really well until he was injured last season making less of his mistakes and he really does give us everything he has to offer. We need all of our players fit and ready to perform so a good run out for him just hope I haven't cursed him now

      Deulofeu will fancy having s run st Lovren. Hope Dejan has his A game head on. He’s ok, just might not be fully tuned in to the pace having not started for so long.
      We surely gonna get bombarded in the box at every opportunity Watford get to pump the ball in.
      Good to see Ox in, but we gonna need a lot of energy in the middle to keep control.
      Early goal, their heads will drop, and we can cruise on.
      No complacency that’s for sure.
      C O Y Red Men . Another 3 points and more records to make 😁
