LIV vs WOL Dream11 Prediction : Liverpool Vs Wolverhampton Best Dream 11 Team For Premier League 2019-20 Match

Liverpool Vs Watford: 3 players from the clash who can possibly change the game own their own at Anfield, as new game-week approaches.

Liverpool is in a red hot form and with no games lost in the previous 16 games in the league, the Merseyside club is definitely inching closer to the league title.

On the other hand, Watford is amidst massive crises at the club, the Clarets have lost two managers in four months into the season. But the newly appointed manager believes that they can still remain in the Premier League by the end of the season.

Leaving aside the optimism, Watford is in an urgent need of revival and what can be worst than facing the arguably best team in Europe when you are at your lowest.

Watford lies at the lowest in the table, 37 points away from Jurgen Klopp’s contingent, who are at the top of the table with the current number of points at the board.

The Reds have been decisive this season and have managed to beat every team they have faced so far in this season across all competitions except Napoli and Manchester United.

Nevertheless, the Premier League is very unpredictable, thus we list out 3 players who can change the game on their own as the Premier League enters into the 17th game-week.

Divock Origi

Liverpool Vs WatfordLiverpool is going to have a tight schedule in December and Jurgen Klopp has to manage the fixture congestion this month. With Liverpool heading for the Club World Cup, they need good rotation to maintain the momentum.

Amidst this tight schedule, Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah need rest, as they have been playing in all matches. Thus, with Watford being the least threat in the Premier League, Origi will get a definite start.

The Belgian forward has delivered in all the circumstances for Liverpool and with the limited number of minutes, his contribution in this season has been impressive.

Thus, it would not be wrong to think that Origi will have a great influence in the match, and can possibly get the result out be himself if, Mane and Salah don’t play on Saturday.

Naby Keita

Liverpool Vs Watford

Naby Keita’s time in Liverpool is finally here. With Fabinho ruled out due to injury, Keita has taken the baton to do the dirty job in the midfield and he has been brilliant at it so far.

Earlier criticized for his poor fitness and injury record and Fabinho’s brilliance Keita ended up being on the sidelines at Liverpool. But now, Keita will have guaranteed starts until the end of December at least.

Thus, we think he will make a huge impact as he picked up form shortly after coming into the squad. His performance against RB Salzburg motivated the Reds to win the game and qualify into the next round. Meanwhile, his performance was lauded by the fans.

Roberto Firmino

Liverpool Vs Watford

Firmino is one of the greatest assets at Liverpool, it would not be wrong to call him the backbone of the front-line at Liverpool, as his self-less play allows Mane and Salah to be the primary scorers.

But this doesn’t mean that he is not lethal in front of the goal. The Brazilian International had some mesmerizing moments in the Premier League this season.

With either of Mane or Salah missing the game, Firmino has the added responsibility to grind result against Watford. So, it would not be wrong to predict that Firmino would be having a huge influence in the game.
