The opening weekend of the new Premier League season is with and us one of the biggest questions heading into the new season, is whether or not Philippe Coutinho will still be a Liverpool player at the end of the month? The Reds are determined not sell but Barcelona are knocking hard on the door to capture the signature of the Brazilian. He is a big injury doubt for their opener anyway because of a back injury.
Liverpool start their new Premier League campaign with a trip to Vicarage Road to face Watford. The Reds have won three of their last four trips there and will be confident, with all of the attacking power that they have, of picking up another three points against the Hornets. Liverpool have scored at least two goals in five of their last six Premier League games against Watford and collected six points against them last term.
So the head to head record for the Reds is strong and four of their last five wins against Watford have been to nil as well. Watford will be starting afresh this season with new manager Marco Silva and so may take some time to get going under their new boss and with five defeats in their last six home against the Reds, this is a tough looking fixture for the Hornets to begin with.
