Ray Wilkins states his prediction for Watford v Liverpool

Ray Wilkins is backing Liverpool to return to winning ways when they travel to Watford in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.
Jurgen Klopp’s men were held to a 2-2 draw by West Bromwich Albion at Anfield last weekend to leave the Reds five points behind fourth-placed Manchester United after 16 games.
The Reds are without a win in all competitions since their 6-1 League Cup thrashing of Southampton at the start of the month and will be keen to kick off the hectic festive schedule with a victory at Vicarage Road.
Liverpool slumped to a 2-0 loss at Newcastle before their draw with the Baggies on Merseyside last weekend.
And Wilkins feels that the Merseyside outfit will have too much for the home side in Sunday’s clash.
Wilkins told talkSPORT on Friday: “Twenty-five points already they’ve [Watford] got. Back-to-back wins are hard enough in the Premier League, let alone three on the spin.
“I’ve just got a feeling, Liverpool away from home are performing – at home, they’re not as good. So I’m going for a Liverpool win.”
Klopp successfully guided Liverpool into the last 32 of the Europa League following last week’s goalless draw against FC Sion in Switzerland.
