Back on top of the Premier League table, Jurgen Klopp’s men will seek to stay there for the rest of the season
Liverpool play host to Watford at Anfield on Wednesday as they aim to build on their one-point advantage at the top of the Premier League.

Jurgen Klopps side were unable to unpick Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday, despite their hosts suffering a first-half rash of injuries, with the weekends showpiece tie finishing in a rather barren scoreless draw.

Watford, meanwhile, picked up their third win in succession, bludgeoning Cardiff 5-1 in south Wales, with Gerard Deulofeu grabbing a hat-trick and Troy Deeney notching a couple more.

Liverpool saw Roberto Firmino limp off with an ankle problem at the weekend but the knock has not emerged as serious and he has an outside chance of featuring in this encounter. Mohamed Salah could play as a false 9 if he misses out; Daniel Sturridge or Divocki Origi are the other options.

Naby Keita has been sick and could miss out.

Joe Gomez, Dejan Lovren and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are laid up.

Liverpool starting XI: Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson; Keita, Fabinho, Wijnaldum; Shaqiri, Salah, Mane

Watfords last match was on Friday, giving them 48 hours extra recovery time in comparison to their hosts, which may allow them to field an unchanged starting XI.

Full-backs Jose Holebas and Kiki Femenia are missing, the former through suspension and the latter through a ban.

Watford starting XI: Foster; Janmaat, Mariappa, Cathcart, Masina; Doucoure, Capoue; Hughes, Deulofeu, Pereyra; Deeney
