Liverpool eventually eased to a 4-2 win against Crystal Palace on Saturday, despite some shaky moments in the first-half…
But we reckon Jurgen Klopp needs to make two changes on Sunday against Watford to ensure we continue our winning run.
If we collect three points at home to the Hornets, something we’re expected to, we’ll return from the international break joint top of the Premier League at the very least.
Personally, we think Simon Mignolet is in better form than Loris Karius right now, but understand that the German signing needs games and are happy for him to continue between the sticks. Elsewhere though, there’s two obvious changes to make.
James Milner will hopefully be over his illness and be ready to come in at left-back, firstly. Alberto Moreno didn’t too awfully at Selhurst Park, but is a far less reliable option than the Englishman who’s been one of our best players this term.
Elsewhere, we’d bring Gini Wijnaldum in for Emre Can, despite the German’s goal at Palace. The Dutchman exerts more control into our midfield, is more consistent and was very good when introduced on Saturday. It’s harsh on Can, who needs game-time, but Wijnaldum is a top player and at the moment fits more naturally into Klopp’s 4-3-3.
Other than that, we’d keep the team the same, hoping for an improved performance from Dejan Lovren at the back and for the scintillating front-three to keep up the good work.
Verses Watford, we’d start like this:
