Watford will look to replicate their performance against Liverpool on the opening day of the season when they head to Anfield on Saturday (5.30pm).

The Hornets, then managed by Marco Silva, came from 3-2 down to secure a point and a thrilling 3-3 draw thanks to Miguel Britos’ controversial late header.

Since then Liverpool have gone from strength to strength while Watford have changed coach following Silva’s sacking in January.

New boss Javi Gracia has made an impressive start to life in the Vicarage Road dugout but the Hornets were comfortably beaten 3-0 at Arsenal last Sunday.

Gracia is without Gerard Deulofeu (fractured foot), Jerome Sinclair (muscle injury), Christian Kabasele (hamstring), Tom Cleverley (hamstring), Molla Wagué (hamstring), Nathaniel Chalobah (knee), Younès Kaboul (fractured metatarsal), Craig Cathcart (knee) and Tommie Hoban (ACL).
