John Barnes states his prediction for Watford v Liverpool

John Barnes is tipping Liverpool to beat Watford 2-1 at Vicarage Road on Sunday afternoon

John Barnes is backing Liverpool to claim a 2-1 victory over Watford in Sunday’s Premier League game at Vicarage Road.

Jurgen Klopp’s men are looking to return to winning ways after they had to come from a goal down to secure a 2-2 draw with West Bromwich Albion at Anfield last weekend.

The Reds have not won a game in all competitions since their 6-1 thrashing of Southampton in the League Cup at the start of the month and will be looking to kick off the hectic festive period with a win.

Liverpool are currently five points behind fourth-placed Manchester United as they look to try to climb the Premier League table in their bid to secure a top-four finish this season.

And former Liverpool star Barnes is backing Klopp’s side to seal victory over the Hornets, with Philippe Coutinho among the scorers in Sunday’s clash.

Barnes wrote in his blog for Titanbet: “Watford have been playing brilliantly of late, but a game away from home will suit Liverpool, and Klopp’s side have the advantage in terms of quality.
