Posted by

Liverpool host Watford at Anfield on Sunday with Jurgen Klopp forced into making a change with Dejan Lovren out with a virus.

The German tactician has opted to bring in Lucas Leiva to replace the Croatian international in the centre of defence as he now partners Joel Matip for the visit of the Hornets.

Aside from that change, it’s business as usual for Liverpool from their win over Crystal Palace last weekend as they look to continue to keep the pressure on at the top of the Premier League table.

As for Watford, Troy Deeney and Odion Ighalo will hope to cause the Liverpool backline problems, with Walter Mazzarri’s men hoping to climb up the table from seventh with a win.
