With next weekend's trip to Manchester City looming on the horizon, Liverpool will be looking to maintain their formidable Premier League form when Watford visit Anfield on Saturday.

The Reds signed off for international duty by sealing their place in the semi-finals of the FA Cup with a 1-0 win over Nottingham Forest, leaving Jurgen Klopp's side still in the mix for the quadruple.

Watford, meanwhile, arrested their winless run with a 2-1 success at Southampton earlier this month, although they still trail 17th-placed Everton by three points having played two games more.

Trent Alexander-Arnold is targeting a return from his hamstring injury for the trip to face fellow title challengers Man City on April 10, with the issue forcing the full back to withdraw from the England squad for the latest round of internationals.

James Milner, meanwhile, is expected to return to the side after he missed the win over Nottingham Forest in the FA Cup prior to the international break, while Naby Keita is likely to be passed fit after pulling out of the Guinea squad with a knee problem.

Watford team news

Ismaila Sarr made his return to action for Senegal on international duty, with the winger having last featured for the Hornets in their goalless draw with Manchester United over a month ago.

Jeremy Ngakia is also likely to return from a hamstring problem, although Nicolas Nkoulou is a doubt.

Liverpool vs Watford score prediction

The Reds have been in irresistible form in the league since the turn of the year and they will have the opportunity to leapfrog City at the top of the table next weekend should they successfully navigate the visit of the Hornets.

Jurgen Klopp's side are likely to feel the pinch of Alexander-Arnold's absence, but their enviable array of attacking stars should be too much for a Watford side who have leaked 12 goals in their last five games.

Prediction: Liverpool 2-0 Watford
