Reasons for betting on Watford vs Liverpool tipp
Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool are going to open a season which could determine his future at Anfield Road. The fans are getting tired of constant promises that the Reds will win the Premier League. This year will be one of the crucial for five time European champions and the German boss. They will have a tough time in Watford because the home team wants the revenge for the last season’s demolishing at Anfield when we have seen 6 goals in the net.
The Hornets had only one defeat during the preseason. On the other hand, they had only 2 victories and 3 draws. Coach Marco Silva prefers to play slow games which are not so attractive to the fans, but they can bring some results. 5 of the 6 games during the preseason have ended with a less than 2.5 goals. 4 of them concluded with only one or none goal, and that proves our claim about the style of the Watford’s boss. The most recent 4 games were finished with both teams not to score, and in the latest two games, we haven’t seen a single goal scored.
All in all, Watford has the totally opposite mentality and game approach when comparing them to Liverpool’s.
The most important thing currently at Anfield is the status of Philippe Coutinho. We are still unsure whether is the Brazilian magician staying with the Reds or moving to Barcelona. Liverpool is not the same team without him on the pitch. At this stage of the transfer window, we are not so sure that Jurgen Klopp can find a decent replacement. The Red have played 9 games during the preseason and they recorded 7 victories along with one draw and one defeat. That defeat came at Audi Cup against Atletico Madrid in the finals, after the penalty shootout. Each time they won, Liverpool at least scored two goals, and 6 of those nine games ended with 2.5 goals. Like in the previous season, the Reds are going to play high-scoring matches, with a huge number of chances. This data needs to be on your mind when betting on Liverpool.

Last game played at Vicarage Road ended in favor of the guests with a minimal result, after Emre Chan had scored a beautiful goal.
