Watford v Liverpool | Saturday, August 12, 9.30pm (AEST), Vicarage Road, Watford
The start of any season and being at home is crucial.
If you’re a team who will be fighting all season and hanging for every point you need to make the most of being at home.
Watford fit that bill again this year and will give it a good shake.
Liverpool will be tested early to see if they can win a type of game that can put them closer to the honours.
They lift against the big boys but can they out fight and outplay Watford?
Philippe Coutinho is the real quality and it’ll be interesting if he continues to make more and more of an impact on how Liverpool play.
Plenty of speculation around him in the off-season and if he kicks on it could well be his last year at Liverpool.
The buyers are watching with interest.
Liverpool haven’t made too many changes to the squad.
Only a few signings that have strengthened what was a decent squad.
Mohamed Salah from Roma will look to impress early and Watford have brought in some steady performing players from EPL plus Kiko Femenia from Spain.
Hard one to call as surprises day one always on the cards.
Liverpool for me though.
Watford at $6.25
Draw at $4.10
Liverpool at $1.55
Tip: Liverpool at $1.55
Correct score: Liverpool 2-1
