New Watford head coach Claudio Ranieri has won four of his five Premier League home matches against Liverpool, losing the other. Of all the managers who have faced the Reds at least five times at home, the Italian has the highest home win-rate against them in Premier League history (80 per cent).
This is the first Premier League meeting between Watford and Liverpool since February 2020, when the Hornets won 3-0 to end the Reds’ club-record 44-match unbeaten league run, and their joint Premier League record 18-match winning streak.
Sadio Mane has scored 99 Premier League goals. As well as potentially becoming just the third African player to reach 100 in the competition, after Didier Drogba and Mohamed Salah, Mane could be just the third player to score 100+ Premier League goals without any of them being penalties, after Les Ferdinand (149) and Emile Heskey (110).
Salah has scored in each of his last seven appearances in all competitions for Liverpool. He’s never scored in eight consecutive matches in his career within the big five European leagues.
