The Reds are a well-oiled offensive machine in those six victories as they scored at least two goals, with the latest being a 3-0 mauling of AFC Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium. The Klopp-mentored XI hopes to stretch their winning run to eight as they face Watford, which need a major miracle to upend league-leading Reds. Liverpool’s offense was tremendous as they have already netted 40 goals in the past 16 games and their defense was excellent, allowing just 14 balls to pass through the goalmouth.

Their ineptitude in the offense was a major factor in their losses. Against Burnley, Southampton and Leicester City, Watford only managed to score a goal while allowing the teams to register seven.
