Mohamed Salah 19/20 to score anytime against Watford in Saturday’s Premier League showdown

Competition: Premier League

Market: Mohamed Salah to score anytime

Odds: 19/20 @ 888sport

Smelling a real chance to lay down a marker on Saturday lunchtime, Liverpool will make the trip to Vicarage Road when they face off against a struggling Watford.

Starting with the hosts, last seen heading into the international break with a 1-0 loss away at Leeds, Watford once again start a new era on Saturday lunchtime. Making the decision to bring in new boss Claudio Ranieri earlier in the month, the Hornets know that they’re in a real battle to avoid an immediate Championship return. Looking over their shoulder and knowing that they face a stern test on home soil this weekend, the one-time Leicester hero will be desperate to try and find some kind of boost. Crashing out of the EFL Cup thanks to a 3-1 defeat against Championship outfit Stoke last month, Watford have now won just one of their previous six matchups across all formats. With that sole victory coming against a rock-bottom Norwich, Saturday’s hosts should be bracing themselves for an overwhelming test at Vicarage Road.

As for the visitors, heading into the international break coming off the back of that stellar 2-2 draw against Manchester City at Anfield, Liverpool should still find the mood in their camp at a high. Sat just a single point adrift of league leaders Chelsea, Jurgen Klopp’s men have continued to impress with their performances in the final third. Including a 5-1 romp against Porto on European duties last month, it is well worth keeping an eye out for attacking talisman Mohamed Salah. Enjoying what has been a free-scoring run since opening the 2021/22 campaign, the Egyptian ace will be smelling a golden chance on Saturday lunchtime. Bagging that stunning solo goal against the defending English champions earlier in the month, Salah has already racked up six Premier League strikes so far this season.
