Liverpool who sit at the 9th place in the Premier League table will take on Watford City on Sunday. Jurgen Klopp will take his team out for just the second time in his small career at the club without a game in the mid-week and the last time he did, his team blew the Citizens away in a 4-1 victory.
Taking all three points from this game will be important for the Reds as it will lift them considerably in the Premier League table. The manager will have to get his team right for this travel and will have to put an end to the three match winless streak in all competitions.
This week there was great news for the fans and the club as Mamadou Sakho returned to training and may well be a part of the starting line up on Sunday. But Klopp will be without the relentless James Milner who picked up an injury during training. Flannagan and Lovren are also nearing full fitness levels and will help the manager in the busy festive season.Keeper Simon Mignolet picked up an injury during training and is a doubtful starter for this game. Here is how they are likely to line up for the trip to Watford:
The second choice keeper for the Reds will get his chance to impress as his senior partner Simon Mignolet picked up an injury and is doubtful for this game.
One of the first names on the team sheet in recent times, Clyne has been solid at the back for Liverpool and will hope to continue his good form on Sunday.
The Slovakian has been one of the main stays at the heart of the Liverpool defense. He has been ever reliable for the reds in the recent weeks and will start again against Watford.
The French International suffered a nasty injury few weeks ago but is nearing full fitness and is expected to start alongside Skrtel against Watford. He has one of the highest passing success rates in the EPL.
The young left back for Liverpool looked vulnerable at times in the last few games but has improved drastically under the German and will start again on Sunday.
The best player so far for Liverpool under their new manager, Emre Can has been a revelation in the Liverpool squad and is an integral part of Klopp’s plans at the club.
The Liverpool skipper marked his return from injury with a goal against the Baggies last week and will be hoping to produce more of the same against Watford.
The little Brazilian came back from injury in the last game but could not assert his dominance and will be hoping to get back to scoring ways this weekend.
The England International is yet to prove the worth of his price tag but has complemented his team mates really well and will have a job to do on Sunday.
The young winger has also impressed the new manager and gives him another option in attack. He may start on the night against Watford and can provide the width that the club has lacked at times.
The ex-Hoffenheim attacker has not yet won over the hearts of the Liverpool fans but has a great chance to add to his only goal in a Liverpool shirt when he starts for the club on Sunday.
Mamadou Sakho may not be fit enough to start on the night and KoloToure might be given start in the Premier League. Divock Origi is also looking more and more confident and may be given a chance to start the game on Sunday in place of Firmino who has not looked convincing recently. Jordan Ibe may also find a place on the bench with Christian Benteke selected as the target man alongside his Belgian team mate Origi. This is how they might line-up if Klopp wants to try something new:
Mignolet; Clyne, Skrtel, Toure, Moreno; Can; Henderson, Lallana, Coutinho; Benteke, Origi
