A top of the bill tussle on Saturday night and the match to bring February to a close. Hopefully, we also see the end of the wet and wintry conditions which have made football difficult in recent weeks. Sky Sports are in London as Watford welcome champions in-waiting Liverpool to town for a Premier League match which starts at 5.30pm GTM.
A Closer Look
Watford faces the unenviable task of trying to stop the Liverpool express train which is speeding through English football at present. The Hornets are no pushovers, however, certainly on their own patch, and will aim to make life as difficult for the league leaders as possible. Liverpool aims to take a step closer to the English crown.
Pressure is on the home team to achieve something here, regardless of how good their opponents have been. The reason for that is Watford are stuck in the thick of a relegation battle and after seasons of chopping and changing managers, they are facing the very real danger of being relegated into the Championship. That would hurt a team who have become accustomed to raking in the prize money that accompanies top-flight football over the years. A home win is as big as 13/2 at William Hill. A bold call about a side playing in front of their own fans, but it’s understandable.
Will the Premier League Winning Streak Continue
Liverpool hasn’t put a foot wrong since they began the season with an easy win over Norwich. The reds have gone from strength to strength with the passing of each match and it becomes obvious quite some time ago that they will finish this season as champions. It will be fully deserved too.
