Predicted Liverpool XI vs. Watford: Naby Keita set for return

Sports Mole looks at how unbeaten Liverpool could line up for Saturday's Premier League trip to face Watford at Vicarage Road.

Liverpool will be looking to extend their unbeaten start to the Premier League season to 13 games on Saturday when they take on Watford at Vicarage Road.

The Reds currently sit two points off leaders Manchester City despite their promising start to the campaign, but could lead the way themselves should results fall kindly for them this weekend.

However, they take on a Watford team that have made a fine start to the season themselves, with the Hornets sitting only four points off the top five.

Here, Sports Mole looks at how Jurgen Klopp could set his side out at Vicarage Road.



Possible LIV XI vs. WAT

Out: Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (knee)
Doubtful: Jordan Henderson (hamstring)

Aside from long-term absentee Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Klopp could have a clean bill of health for the trip to Hertfordshire, with the only doubt lingering over captain Jordan Henderson.

The midfielder is battling to be fit in time after missing England's win over Croatia during the international break, but Klopp has been cautious with his recovery so far and is unlikely to risk him if he is not 100% ready.

There is no shortage of other options in midfield, with Naby Keita available once again and the likes of Adam Lallana, Xherdan Shaqiri and Fabinho also pushing for a place in the trio.

The rest of the team is more straightforward, although Klopp must again decide whether or not to start Dejan Lovren; doing so would most likely see Joe Gomez switch to right-back and Trent Alexander-Arnold miss out.
