There’s a reduced schedule in the Premier League today due to the FA Cup quarterfinals.
The late live game sees Watford travel to Anfield to take on Liverpool. The Reds come off a disappointing defeat to Manchester United last weekend and will be keen to get their chase for next season’s Champions League football qualification back on track, particularly after Friday’s mouth-watering draw against Manchester City in this season’s quarterfinals.
The reverse fixture between these two sides on the opening week of the season gave an indication of how things might pan out for Liverpool, terrific going forward and weak defensively in a 3-3 draw.
That said, some of Liverpool’s defensive personnel has changed since then, in particular the recruitment of huge centre back Virgil van Dijk.
The Reds are likely to have a lot of possession this evening and that is likely to translate into a number of set pieces. We look for van Dijk to get on the end of one of these, and take the 7/1 on offer that he scores during the game.
Recommendation: Van Dijk to score for Liverpool at any time, 1 pt, at 7/1, BetFred
