Liverpool defeated Salzburg on Tuesday night to book their place in the KO stages of the Champions League. Next up, the high flying Reds will face bottom of the table Watford in the Premier League.
The European Champions should be considered favorites to earn all three points against the Hornets at Anfield.
As far as the team news is concerned, in the past few games, Klopp has rotated his squad due to fixture congestion and therefore, we can expect the German boss to make a few changes in the team that started vs the Austrian club in the CL.
Salah and Firmino started the last two games and they should be rested for the contest against Watford. The duo did not start in the Merseyside derby and the likes of Origi and Shaqiri impressed big time. The Belgian striker and the Swiss winger should get the nod to start in the attack with Mane on Saturday.
In the midfield, Naby Keita has scored two goals in the last two games but the Guinean should be rested as well keeping in view that the Reds will kick start their Club World Cup campaign on the 18th. So, the likes of Oxlade-Chamberlain and Milner should return to partner Henderson in the center of the park.
In the back-line, Lovren was subbed off in the last two games due to fitness concerns and he is unavailable for tomorrow’s fixture. In his place, Gomez should start. Here is Liverpool’s strongest possible XI vs Watford:
