You would have lost money betting against Liverpool this season although there is sometimes an argument for getting with their opponents on the Asian Handicap market.

Anyone who backed Shrewsbury Town, Norwich City, Atletico Madrid or West Ham United with a +1.5 goal headstart for the Reds’ previous four matches would have landed a profit on each occasion.

Jurgen Klopp’s side continue to break records but they don’t always blow teams out of the water, especially away from home. Quite simply, the Merseyside outfit are now at the stage where they are looking to get the job done as quickly as possible.

Watford will feel confident that they can ruffle a few feathers after witnessing the Hammers score twice at Anfield, with the Hornets having been pretty strong at Vicarage Road since Nigel Pearson took charge.

While the previous home match saw Everton enjoy a 3-2 win, Watford were in cruise control at 2-0 up and approaching half-time before Yerry Mina scored twice from corners.

Previously to this, the Herfordshire side were a missed penalty away from beating Tottenham and that came after three consecutive home wins against Manchester United, Aston Villa and Wolves.

Pearson will feel as though his side are still capable of remaining in the top flight and they can keep things close against a Liverpool side who have a Champions League last sixteen clash against Atletico Madrid looming on the horizon.

Jordan Henderson might miss this clash through injury and the midfield blend isn’t quite the same without the influential captain, with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain potentially being given the nod in place of Naby Keita.

While there’s always the possibility of Liverpool running riot if they take an early lead, we’re happy to side with Watford and a +1.5 goal headstart, with a home win, draw or slender away win still seeing us land a profit.
