Ian Wright is backing Liverpool to ease to victory over Watford at Vicarage Road on Monday night.

The Reds will be looking to return to winning ways in the Premier League after a shock 2-1 loss to London side Crystal Palace last time out.

Jurgen Klopp’s side are in third place but only two points clear of fifth-placed Manchester United, who have played one game less than their rivals.

Liverpool eased to a resounding 6-1 win against Watford in the Premier League at Anfield earlier this season, including a brace for Sadio Mane.

Former Arsenal striker Ian Wright is backing Liverpool to ease to a win against the Hornets and get their top-four bid back on track.

“It’s the kind of game Liverpool [have been] losing. Having said that, I think they will win,” Wright told The Sun Goals podcast.
