Match Preview : Liverpool vs Tottenham

Friday, February 10th, 2017

Liverpool’s 2-0 loss at Hull means they have failed to win a Premier League game in 2017 and have won just once in all competitions this year. The Reds, though, are unbeaten in their last six against Spurs at home, winning four.

Tottenham fell to a 2-1 loss when these two teams met at Anfield in the EFL Cup earlier in the campaign, but will field a stronger XI here. They are unbeaten in the last four Premier League away games, winning two.

The north London side, though, could be held to a draw, prolonging Liverpool’s winless start to 2017 in the process.

Match Preview : Manchester United vs Watford

Friday, February 10th, 2017

Manchester United are now only two points outside the top four after making it 15 league games without defeat at the weekend. With Liverpool and Tottenham set to face off this weekend they have the chance to move even closer to those currently above them in the Premier League.

Watford have won back-to-back games for the first time since January and their new signings have really made an impact for the Hornets. They will be looking to do their first league double over United for the first time in their history after beating them 3-1 in the reverse fixture back in September.

United have only lost one game at home all season and have kept four clean sheets in their last four matches at Old Trafford, although they will be tested this weekend. Watford haven’t beaten United at Old Trafford since 1978 and that run should be presevered here.

Team News

Manchester United – Phil Jones missed Manchester United’s 3-0 win over Leicester at the weekend with an ankle injury and remains a doubt here, while Marcos Rojo came off at half-time in Sunday’s win and will need time to recover from his knock.

Illness kept Wayne Rooney out of action this weekend but he should recover in time for Saturday’s welcome of Watford.

Other than a possible change at left-back, Jose Mourinho may not feel the need to change the starting XI that beat Leicester when United welcome Watford on Saturday.

This means that Anthony Martial, Luke Shaw and Wayne Rooney continue to miss out.

Watford – Watford’s new signings have made a real impact and Walter Mazzarri may not feel any need to make changes from the side that beat beat Burnley 2-1 when they go to Old Trafford on Saturday.

Jose Holebas missed training at the start of the week with a calf injury suffered as a result of Jeff Hendrick’s red card tackle at the weekend. He is a doubt this weekend.

Costel Pantilimon is expected back in training later this month unless he suffers a setback in his recovery from an ankle injury. Christian Kabasele, however, is back in full training, while Nordin Amrabat is training on his own as he steps up his recovery from an ankle problem.
