PREM: Watford v Liverpool preview


Watford v Liverpool preview

Adam Lallana has a chance of being fit for Liverpool's clash away to Watford


Lallana returned to first-team training for the first time since his groin injury a month ago and is in contention to feature for Jurgen Klopp's side.
 
A draw in Thursday's Manchester derby means Liverpool retain third place, one point ahead of City and two ahead of United, with both clubs having a match in hand.

However, with four matches remaining, Dejan Lovren, who signed a new long-term contract at the club, is confident they can achieve their aim of securing Champions League football.

"I would be stupid if I was to say we don't believe in this," he stated.
 
"We started the season so strong and we believed from day one in pre-season - and we are still believing.

"Unfortunately, we had some injuries and we were unlucky in those moments, but we still have a big squad with young talents.

"We will definitely fight in the last four games to take all 12 points.
 
"I always believe. I believe in the team and I believe in every single person who believes in us. This is the most important thing.

"I think we would deserve it at the end because of how well we've done for all of the season."
 
Watford defender Craig Cathcart is a doubt because of a knee problem.

Swiss midfielder Valon Behrami, who has just returned to the squad after a spell out with a hamstring injury, will also be monitored.
 
Younes Kaboul (hamstring), Roberto Pereyra (knee) and forward Mauro Zarate (anterior cruciate ligament) all remain sidelined.

Striker Daniel Sturridge is also involved with the first team again after missing Sunday's defeat to Crystal Palace with a sore hip.

Captain Jordan Henderson (foot) is still not fit to return while Sadio Mane, Ragnar Klavan and Danny Ings (all knee) are long-term absentees.
