As the meltdowns continue on social media, it’s a quick turn around and onto Watford.
The performance was not good enough on Sunday. Roberto Firmino’s injury doesn’t help either. That said, our squad is more than capable of putting together some wins in the next few games.
There’s no question that Mo Salah must play as the nine for the time being. The drop off in quality between our strikers was clear once Firmino was forced off – an area Jurgen Klopp will need to address in the Summer.
One change to the back four from the United game sees Trent return at right-back. He offers more going forward than Milner – who does a job at fullback but lacks the pace to keep up with the quicker wingers.
With Everton in mind on Sunday, Fabinho is rested. The captain starts in the six behind a fresh Naby Keita and Wijnaldum.
We will miss Firmino, especially as Origi and Sturridge can’t replace the influence he can have on games when in form. It feels like our other forwards aren’t suited to the lone striker role, which means Salah has to step in.
Big Shaq is back in the building. He’s overdue a strong performance – and this could be the game. Sadio Mane completes the side on the opposite flank.
If basing a prediction off the back of the last game, the bluntness of the attack leaves little room for optimism. However, this Liverpool side can respond – just as they have before. A confident Watford side will be a test, but not one we haven’t come up against.
Score Prediction: Liverpool 3 – 1 Watford
