WATFORD v LIVERPOOL STREAM LIVE

Ranieri, 69, is back in the Premier League after he replaced Xisco Munoz during the international break. Watford have seven points after seven games of the season, not a terrible return for a newly-promoted team, but they have so many tough games coming up. Starting with Liverpool at home. Ismaila Sarr has caused Liverpool some problems in the past and Ranieri will set Watford up to be tough to break down and dangerous on the break.

This may be a good time to play Jurgen Klopp’s men. With question marks over plenty of players and their availability after returning from international duty late, it could be a much-changed Liverpool side. That said, they remain unbeaten in the Premier League so far this season and have looked back to their best.
