Former Red Michael Owen expects the Reds to claim another victory in the Premier League against Watford on Saturday.
The Reds welcome the Hornets to Anfield this weekend after securing qualification into the Champions League knockout rounds midweek.
Jurgen Klopp’s side defeated Salzburg 2-0 in Austria, which ensured Liverpool finished on top of Group E.
Liverpool currently sit first in the Premier League after 16 matches. Klopp’s side have only dropped points in one fixture, which was the 1-1 draw against Manchester United at Old Trafford back in October.
Owen believes Liverpool will gain three more points this weekend against a struggling Hornets outfit. Watford currently sit last in the Premier League.
“Watford have failed to score in nine league games so far this season, but leaders Liverpool have yet to keep a clean sheet in any competition at Anfield this term,” Owen said in his column for BetVictor.
“The Hornets may find the back of the Reds’ net in Saturday’s early kick-off, but the Reds have won 24 of their last 25 league games and scored two or more goals in 23 of those fixtures. Those are remarkable statistics.
“I can’t see past another comfortable home win as top entertain bottom.”
It is unlikely that Liverpool’s unbelievable start to the season will take a turn for the worst against Watford.
Despite having injuries to key players such as centre-back Joel Matip and midfielder Fabinho, the Reds have continued to find ways to get the results needed.
Leicester City, who sit second in the Premier League, take on Norwich City at the King Power Stadium. With the Foxes likely to gain all three points, it is crucial the Reds also gain all three points.
