Liverpool team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Watford

Sports Mole rounds up all of Liverpool's latest injury and suspension news ahead of their Premier League clash with Watford on Saturday.

Liverpool will aim to return to winning ways in the Premier League when they travel to Watford on Saturday lunchtime following the international break.

Jurgen Klopp's side played out an enthralling 2-2 draw with Manchester City before the international break, with goals form Phil Foden and Kevin De Bruyne cancelling out Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah's efforts.

The Reds occupy second spot in the league table after seven matches, but the hectic fixture schedule is once again set to add to Klopp's frustrations this weekend.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up all of Liverpool's latest injury and suspension news ahead of the contest.
