- Ismaila Sarr has been working his way back to full fitness in recent weeks but should return to the starting XI here after giving Liverpool’s defence a tough time in the reverse meeting.
- Full-back pairing Daryl Janmaat and Kiko Femenia are both doubts for Watford, while Craig Dawson is ruled out.
- Liverpool will continue to be without their captain, Jordan Henderson.
- Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will hope to come into the starting XI at the expense of Naby Keita on Saturday.
- Liverpool are away to Chelsea in the FA Cup on Tuesday and it remains to be seen how Jurgen Klopp will juggle his squad with that game in mind.
