Liveblog: Liverpool v Watford Live Updates From Premier League Clash

Liverpool host Watford tonight in a vital Premier League clash, hoping to reverse their recent run of poor form. While The Reds have still only lost one game this season, three draws in their last four league outings has seen their once healthy lead over Manchester City quickly evaporate. We will provide you with Liverpool v Watford live updates from this vital match, as they seek to get their title challenge back on track.

While Watford will be considered major outsiders in this game, they have been on an excellent run of form as of late. Their 5-1 win over Cardiff last weekend saw them rise to seventh place in the Premier League table, and manager Javi Gracia's stock is rising fast.

Liverpool are without Roberto Firmino, with the Brazilian replaced by Divock Origi in the starting line-up. Mo Salah will be hoping to repeat his performance from this fixture last season, when he banged in four goals in 5-0 victory.

Jurgen Klopp was in a defiant mood before today's game, writing in his official match programme notes:

Nobody takes points from Liverpool now unless they are prepared to prise it from our clenched fist – and I haven’t seen many this season that can beat us when it comes to will and desire. Our core values remain – which is that we are a team built on positivity and attacking intent.

It flows through our veins. We approach games also with the view of ‘what can WE do today’ – never ‘what can we do to stop our opponent’.
