The Hornets are set to travel to Anfield on Wednesday night, for a Premier League clash.

Hosts Liverpool will head into proceedings on the back of a disappointing recent run of form.

Jurgen Klopp’s men have picked up just 1 win from their last 5 outings across all competitions, the latest of which saw the Reds held to a 0-0 stalemate at Old Trafford yesterday afternoon.

Nevertheless, though, Liverpool, as things stand, sit a point clear of Manchester City atop the Premier League table.

Watford, meanwhile, are set to head to Merseyside brimming with confidence, on the back of a 3-game win streak.

The Hornets’ latest fixture saw Javi Gracia’s men thump Cardiff by 5 goals to 1 last Friday, courtesy of a Man of the Match showing from Gerard Deulofeu.

And, ahead of his side’s visit to Anfield, Javi Gracia has this evening provided an update on Watford’s squad.

The Spanish tactician will have almost a full complement of players to choose from on Wednesday night, with the injured Kiko Femenia and suspended Jose Holebas the only two of the Hornets’ panel set to miss out:
