Michael Owen is tipping Liverpool FC to ease to victory over Watford at Anfield on Wednesday night.

The Reds were unable to capitalise on Manchester United’s mounting injury problems at Old Trafford at the weekend.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was forced to make three substitutions in the first half but Liverpool FC failed to test David De Gea as they were held to a goalless draw at Old Trafford.

Liverpool FC’s point hoisted them above Manchester City and into top spot in the Premier League table with 11 games to go.

The Reds will welcome Watford to Anfield in pursuit of a sixth victory in seven games against the Hornets.

Jurgen Klopp’s side have scored 20 times in their last six meetings and the Liverpool FC boss will be hoping his attack can return to form after a poor performance at Old Trafford.

Former Liverpool FC striker Owen is backing the Merseyside outfit to ease to victory in a high-scoring game against Watford on Wednesday night.

“Watford put five past Cardiff on Friday, but they have a poor record on the road against the “big six” losing their last eleven Premier League games,” Owen told BetVictor.

“Liverpool have failed to create many scoring opportunities in their last couple of games, but I believe both goalless draws against Bayern and United were not the poor results many would have us believe.

“The Reds have won ten of their 11 Premier League games against Watford at Anfield and I feel Jurgen Klopp’s side will improve on that record against the Hornets although Javi Gracia’s side will make sure it isn’t all one-way traffic.”

Liverpool FC are looking to win their first Premier League title after successive fourth-placed finishes under the German head coach.

The Reds will travel to local rivals Everton in their next away fixture on Sunday afternoon.

The Merseyside outfit played out a goalless draw with Bayern Munich in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 tie earlier in February.
