Predicted Watford line-up to face Liverpool in the Premier League

Watford are winless in their last two games and were made to share the spoils against Southampton last time out. Javi Gracia’s side made a strong start to the season but they have since slightly fallen off the pace at the top.

The manager definitely needs to be careful as the Hornets come up against an unbeaten Liverpool in the league this weekend. The Reds are terrifying going forward and Watford have to be at their best.

Team News

Sebastian Prodl, Daryl Janmaat and Will Hughes are all out injured for this game. Tom Cleverley is also out for a considerable period of time but Javi Gracia still has a good set of options to deploy.

Probable Watford XI

Manager: Javi Gracia

Formation: 4-2-2-2

Ben Foster (GK)

Foster has been an immense presence between the sticks for Watford this season. He has to be at his best against a fiery Liverpool attack.

Kiko Femenia (RB)

The right-back has done well after coming into the side for Daryl Janmaat. He has looked good going forward as well.

Adrien Mariappa (CB)

Mariappa has been defensively fruitful since making his way into line-up. He will start at the back for this one as well.

Craig Cathcart (CB)

Cathcart has been one of their most consistent performers this season. He will partner Mariappa at the back.

Craig Cathcart

Jose Holebas (LB)

Scored the goal last time out and underlined his importance in the squad this season.

Abdoulaye Doucoure (RCM)

Doucoure has made new strides under Javi Gracia and has been a machine for the Hornets this season. He has also been defensively very good.

Etienne Capoue (LCM)

Capoue was rested last time out and will return to partner Doucoure in this game.

Gerard Deulofeu (RAM)

An injury to Will Hughes should see the Spaniard moved to a midfield role in this game.

Roberto Pereyra (LAM)

The Argentinian is definitely capable of punishing Liverpool with his pace and trickery on the ball.

Isaac Success (ST)

Success has looked good since breaking into the first-team. He should continue up front against the Reds as well.
