Liverpool The Clear Favourites For The Three Points
Liverpool have tended to struggle against the so-called smaller teams of the Premier League but the bookmakers are confident they can start this season off in strong fashion. They might have half an eye on their Champions League qualifier on Tuesday night which would be a worry for their supporters, but their form in pre-season has been excellent with a 3-0 win over Bayern the highlight.
Adam Lallana will miss the start of the season with injury whilst there are doubts over Daniel Sturridge (obvs) and Coutinho, who as well as the transfer speculation, is reported to have a stuff back.
As for Watford, Marco Silva has arrived from Watford and will be keen for a strong start, and you do expect better from them this term with the likes of Andre Gray, Will Hughes and Nathaniel Chalobah set to make their debuts. Despite that, Watford are 11/2 with Bet365 to claim the three points, with the same firm making Liverpool 4/7.

Expect Goals At Vicarage Road
These two teams have often provided entertainment when they have crossed swords in the past with eighteen goals in their last six matches against each, other and we can probably expect more of the same.
We saw last season that Liverpool are red hot going forward, and that will only be enhanced by the arrival of the pacey Mo Salah who will add even more speed and goals to the Reds attack alongside Firmino and Mane up front. The former Chelsea man scored 15 goals in Italy last term and he has been prolific in pre-season under Klopp, which means plenty will be backing him at 15/8 with Paddy Power to score anytime on debut.
As well as being scintillating in attack, the Reds were just as leaky at the back last term, and with no sign of Virgil Van Dijk arriving any time soon, those concerns look set to continue.
Watford beat Liverpool 3-0 at home the season before last and Silva turned the Reds over last term when he was in charge at Hull, and they are more than capable of causing their illustrious opponents a problem or two.
Liverpool should be too strong over all with their attacking play likely to cause Watford plenty of trouble but this could be closer than some people think, which means an away win and both teams scoring looks like the best bet at 12/5 with bet365.
