Liverpool can go top of the Premier League table by beating Watford at Anfield on 6 November.

Where to watch live

Kick-off is set for 2.15pm GMT. The game will be broadcast live on Sky Sports 1 HD.


Emre Can, Dejan Lovren, Joel Matip and Roberto Firmino all scored as Liverpool beat Crystal Palace 4-2 on 29 October. The Reds will go top of the league table if they win against Watford and Arsenal fail to beat Tottenham in the early kick-off.

Striker Danny Ings will miss the rest of the season after suffering a serious knee injury. Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has no other injury concerns.

Michael Dawson's late own goal gave Watford a 1-0 win over Hull City on 29 October and extended the Hornets' unbeaten run in the league to four matches. Watford have lost six of their last seven meetings with Liverpool in all competitions.

Craig Cathcart and Isaac Success are both out injured for the visitors, while Stefano Okaka (hamstring) is a doubt.

What managers say

Jurgen Klopp: "Let's play football, it's Anfield. It's the last game before the international break, so let's take a positive result, use the momentum. We were in a good moment and now we have to show we are still in a good moment. The crowd was fantastic in the last home game. Even at Crystal Palace all our away supporters were really fantastic, even in the game when it was really difficult."

Walter Mazzarri: "From my point of view this is a great test because I always tell my players the important thing is their mentality. They always have to concentrate on the pitch and think only about what is on the pitch and nothing else, mainly for the away games. This is a great test for me because I want to see if they are ready to play against one of the great teams at a very high level."
