The Watford vs Liverpool game will be played on Monday, May 1, at the Vicarage Road Stadium, Watford. Watford is currently 13th on the table with 40 points, while Liverpool is 3rd on the table with 40 points at the moment and a game in hand.


  • Watford was defeated twice in their last 3 Premier League games. However, both losses came in away matches. At home, Watford is currently in a series of 3 victories. Also, they didn't concede a single goal in those games.
  • Liverpool was defeated in the match against Crystal Palace last weekend, and that was their first loss after 7 games. Liverpool scored at least one goal in each of their last 10 games.


In their previous 7 meetings in the 21st century, Liverpool recorded 6 victories, while Watford defeated them only once. However, that win came last season at the Vicarage Road, and the result was 3-0. The hosts certainly hope they can repeat that achievement.


Watford invested a lot in their current squad, and they expected better results this season. On the other hand, it was not realistic to expect the fight for top 6, despite all the investments, the teams that are currently positioned from the first to the seventh position on the table are the best on paper, without a doubt. Watford still have a chance to finish eight, WBA has only 4 points more than them at the moment, but Watford has a game in hand. Of course, they will have to win in most of the matches until the end of the season, but they have a terrible schedule. Apart from Liverpool, they will face Leicester, Everton, Chelsea and Manchester City.

After a defeat against Crystal Palace, Liverpool is in an awkward situation. They have one and two points advantage over the clubs from Manchester, but they also have a game in hand. Arsenal is 6 points away, but with two games in hand and Liverpool might quickly drop to position number 6. That's why the upcoming game is crucial for their ambitions.

Both teams need a victory, but only one club can get it. It is tough to predict the outcome of the upcoming game. We expect to see over 2.5 goals in this match.
