Liverpool expected 4-3-3 v Watford: Midfielder dropped in two changes
By Amir Mir
Liverpool could make two changes to their starting XI, as they host in-form Watford at Anfield on Sunday afternoon.
The Reds beat London outfit Crystal Palace 4-2 last Saturday in an enthralling encounter, which saw five first-half goals.
Jurgen Klopp could decide to field hard-working midfielder Giorgino Wijnaldum at the weekend and replace Adam Lallana in the line-up.
Additionally, versatile player James Milner, who missed the Palace victory, could return and replace the much-criticised Alberto Moreno at left-back.
The dangerous attacking trio of Philippe Coutinho, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane will most likely start as Liverpool aim to record their eighth victory in their last nine games.

Klopp’s men are currently third in the league table with 23 points from ten games, with only goal difference separating the top three going into the weekend fixtures.
Despite not keeping a clean sheet in ten games this season, Klopp could field captain Jordan Henderson in front of centre-back’s Dejan Lovren and Joel Matip.
German international Emre Can, who impressed during his side’s last victory, could start in midfield, as the Reds aim to strangle the opposition, with their consistent and well-timed high-pressing.
Regular first-teamer Nathanial Clyne is likely to start at right-back, with goalkeeper Loris Karius hoping to keep Simon Mignolet on the bench.
