Watford vs Liverpool by RadoX
The European football season we all wait for is back, and with it comes the great Premier League. Everyone knows how unpredictable this league can be and that can be good or bad, depending on our analysis of the matches.
In this analysis the match will be the second match of the first fixture, between Watford and Liverpool.
On Watford side, the summer was quite movimented but first of all i think their major sign was Marco Silva, their new coach, who I think will show himself as a very promising coach with a great future in front of him. He is young and considered one of the most talented coaches in Portugal and every country he works in. In Olympiakos (yes, is a total different league in terms of team's potential) in 48 matches he won 38 of them, drawing 3 and losing 7, but he didn't lose a single game at home while working there. After this work he was asked for an impossible mission, which was to save Hull City from relegation, and he impressed everyone there as he was almost doing it, with several unexpected wins (for example, against Liverpool and West Ham) and he was on the race to achieve that mission but then everyone saw that team wasn't capable of saving itself even if it was Mourinho there. After this work he asked to join some good teams, for example, in Portugal, he was asked to come to F.C Porto. He decided to stay in the premier league where he also received some offers (Southampton, Crystal Palace). Watford's offer and project convinced Marco and here we are today.
Watford signed Richarlison from Fluminense, Chalobah from Chelsea, Will Hughes from Derby County, Daniel Bachmann from Stoke (free) and most recently they broke their transfer record by signing the young and promising ex-Burnley forward Andre Gray. They kept their main players from previous season and that is very important as Marco Silva had already a base to work on this summer. It is important to understand that the impressive Silva's job on Hull City was done when he entered in the middle of the season, when Hull had like 18 points and even that didn't stop the good results to come.
Against big teams like Liverpool and even though its the beginning of a new season, I expect a strong Watford, knowing that Liverpool are the huge favorites, I think that Watford will be capable of doing something here.
In the pre-season they played 5 games, winning 2 (Benfica and Bristol Rovers), drawing 2 (Nantes and Ajax) and losing 1 (Oxford United).
They are expected to play with a 4-2-3-1 formation, Silva's favorite against many comparable teams, and maybe a 4-5-1 against bigger teams.
I'm a huge fan of Liverpool since I'm a child and I'm enjoying Jurgen Klopp's work since he came to the club. I know he is a coach capable of doing big things for Liverpool this year. Throughout the summer, Liverpool's pre-season was really good. They almost won every single match and they also played against tough teams like in the Audi Cup (yes, it is pre-season but a Bayern is always a Bayern :P). They did only draw against Wigan and in the Audi Cup final against Atlético Madrid. They bought 3 players, Mohamed Salah from Roma, Dominic Solanke from Chelsea and Andrew Robertson from Hull City. They are 3 really good players and I Expect them to have a big impact on the team. They sold Lucas Leiva to Lazio, Kevin Stewart to Hull City, and Wisdom to Derby County, so, no big losses yet (Coutinho... who knows...).To this match, Klopp can't count on Lallana and Clyne due to injury.
I think Liverpool will present itself in the field hoping to score as soon as possible, trying to secure the 3 points, and that is possible at all, but I suspect Watford's side to be very organized, competent and dangerous at the same time.
In every start of the season in the Premier League, there is always one team that has a slow start and plays under the expectations, and I think this fixture one of them might be Liverpool because they will find a tough team, whose philosophy will be to stay as high in the table as possible, and getting the most points at home (Marco Silva home records) as possible. Liverpool (alongside Tottenham) will have the bigger troubles in the first round because I think the home teams will be very confident of themselves.
I expect Watford to at least not lose the match, but consider the fact that Liverpool winning it wouldn't be a surprise to anyone, as they are clear favorites to win here, but I see value in a double chance for Watford or Draw as I think Watford and Marco Silva to be huge surprises throughout this Premier league season.
The bet is quite risky so take low stakes!!!
Good luck everyone!
