Watford v Liverpool
Saturday 12th August 2017 Watford V Liverpool Vicarage Road Liverpool's likely line up
Mignolet Moreno Matip Lovern Trent Arnold Henderson Emre Can Coutinho Salah Firmino Mane
Will it be opening day galore for Liverpool or more misery? As the EPL kick off draws ever closer I have a look at one game in particular that could in my opinion be the game of opening weekend. Liverpool's summer transfer business has been worrying fans off the pitch yet pre season has been quite a breath of fresh air. 1 defeat in pre season has to fill Liverpool fans with some optimism. personally as a Liverpool fan I cant wait for the opening game, although Liverpool's problems off the pitch regarding transfers never seem to end its a breath of fresh air that come 12;30pm on Saturday we can kick off our campaign with hopefully 3 points. We have every right to be excited, with the front three that is Salah, Firmino and Mane with Coutinho in behind them you need to wonder just what watfords tactics will be to stop them? Last seasons results against Watford were emphatic to say the least, Othe 6th of November Liverpool beat Watford 6-1 at Anfield which was a huge victory then as the season was coming to a close they met again at Vicarage Road and with Liverpool pushing for that final champions league place it needed a spectacular Emre Can overhead kick to win the game meaning it ended Liverpool 1 Watford 0 and that proved to be a huge win for Liverpool in securing top 4 and champions league football. Going into this game Liverpool fans will be feeling some what excited to finally see Salah in a EPL game and in my eyes he will have a point to prove to show everyone he isn't just come Chelsea Reject. Salah will be looking to get off the mark straight away and with 4 goals in pre season already I wouldn't bet against him to bang in 1 or 2 against Watford as he is fast skillful and he can dazzle any defence on his day and that also applies for Mane who will be looking to continue the fine form he was at before he got injured in the Merseyside derby last season. Overall I think that Liverpool fans have a lot to be excited for this season and I think that they will be without a doubt challenging for the title, Liverpool are a club who deserve to be challenging for all trophies and this season will be no different, Prediction I think personally liverpools front 3 with Coutinho behind them will provide too much power for Watford so I am going for a Liverpool 3-0 Win and I predicting goals from Salah, Firmino and finally Mane and I think that Liverpool fans will be very excited come 3pm Saturday Afternoon.
