TEAM NEWS: Liverpool vs Watford, Salah starts as Arnold is benched

Liverpool will be hosting Watford at Anfield in Saturday’s early kick-off and could go top of the Premier League table with a win. 

If the Reds secure just a draw they would move level on points with Manchester City but they would leapfrog the champions on goal difference. A win for Jurgen Klopp’s side would take them two points above City, but the champions can quickly regain the top spot with a victory at relegation strugglers Burnley in the 3:30 pm kick-off at Turf Moor. Jurgen Klopp has made four changes to the team that last played in the Premier League – the 2-0 win at Arsenal.

In attack, Salah and Firmino both start as Mane and Diaz drop to the bench. In midfield, Jones comes in for Fabinho, who’s named on the bench. And at the back, Alexander-Arnold returns from injury but is only on the bench as Gomez takes his place right-back.

Liverpool XI: Alisson, Gomez, Van Dijk, Matip, Robertson, Henderson, Jones, Thiago, Jota, Salah, Firmino.

Subs: Kelleher, Konate, Tsimikas, Alexander-Arnold, Fabinho, Milner, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Mane, Diaz.

Watford XI: Foster, Femenia, Kabasele, Samir, Kamara, Sissoko, Louza, Kucka, Hernandez, Sarr, Pedro.

Subs: Bachmann, Ngakia, King, Cleverley, Masina, Sema, Cathcart, Dennis, Kayembe.
