Liverpool tipped to show ‘stuff of champions’ once more on visit to Watford

Liverpool will show their metal once more this weekend as they look to maintain their brilliant run in the Premier League when they visit Watford .

That is the view of former Reds striker Michael Owen, who has praised the table-toppers for being able to grind out results even when they are not playing well.

The Reds have dropped only two points in the top flight all season and lead the division by a stunning 22 points.

Therefore a trip therefore to second-bottom Watford should be a formality but the Premier League has a habit of producing shock results at times.

Indeed West Ham , who are level on points with the Hornets, nearly pulled off a remarkable result last time out against Jurgen Klopp ’s men.

David Moyes’ side led 2-1 at Anfield up until the 69th minute and had the champions-elect rattled.

But they could not hold out and eventually lost the contest 3-2 after goals from Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane late on.

Liverpool have had to battle for several of their other victories this season, often only winning by the odd goal.

And Owen thinks they could be in for another tight affair at Vicarage Road on Saturday evening.

But he has tipped his former team to get the three points they need to move even closer to claiming a first league title in 30 years.

“Liverpool have not been at their best in recent games, but they keep finding a way of winning league games – the stuff of champions,” he wrote in his BetVictor column.

“And their record-breaking season shows no sign of abating having come from behind to beat West Ham at Anfield earlier in the week.

“Watford had their opportunities at Old Trafford on Sunday but were ultimately well beaten and are fighting for their Premier League lives.

“I expect a tight game with few opportunities but believe the Reds will take maximum points from a low-scoring affair.”

Going into the game the Reds need only four more wins to guarantee themselves a maiden Premier League title.

That number could be down to just three by Saturday night.
