Bad News To Liverpool Fans As Their 4 First Team Players Won't Be Available For The Watford Game

The Reds travels to Vicarage Road for match day eight fixture against Watford.

Having lost 3-0 in the previous fixture, this should be nothing but a revenge, Liverpool will look to get the maximum points to keep on pace with other top four contenders. However, Klopp has some absentees for the fixture he needs to address.

Both Fabinho and Alisson won't be available for the lunch hour fixture as the duo flew directly to Spain ahead of their Champions League date with Atletico Madrid on Wednesday. This happens after they were both involved in international duty with Brazil. This means Kelleher will replace Alisson between the sticks and Henderson to take Fabinho's role.

Diogo Jota faces race against time for his fitness from nagging muscle injury but Firmino could utilise the opportunity to make just his second league start of the season. Curtis Jones sustained a knock while representing England U21 in midweek and so he's ruled out for the trip.

Liverpool remains unbeaten this season but haven't been as sound defensively, so The Hornets may cause them problems as they are full of confidence having won the previous fixture and also following the appointment of former Chelsea FC and Leicester manager Claudio Ranieri.
