Coutinho dropped, Salah & Trent AA starts in 4-3-3 probable Liverpool line-up vs Watford

Liverpool begin their 2017/18 Premier League campaign with an away game against Watford and Vicarage Road and the Reds are not without challenges ahead of the game,

A chunk of Jurgen Klopp’s men are sidelined with injuries and the team is heavily distracted with reports linking Philippe Coutinho with a move to Barcelona.

Liverpool struggled in the League last term but they still managed to finish in the first quartet of the League table. They will be looking to go one better than they did last term.

Klopp has bolstered his squad ahead of the campaign and the attack will have a new outlook. Mohamed Salah joined Roma and the star scored goal with reckless abandon during the Reds Pre-season outing.


Lallana is out of action for at least two month after he sustained an injury against Atletico Madrid in the Audi Cup.

“I think we can pretty much rule him out of August and September,” Klopp told the club’s official website.

Philippe Coutinho, who headlines the media wave of the Reds has been ruled out of the game due to a back problem.

Meanwhile, Daniel Sturridge picked up a thigh strain in the Reds game against Bayern Munich but he could be in contention for this game.

Speaking about the absence of Clyne, “He’s had no pre-season so far,” Klopp explained.

“So, for him, it will not only be tight for Watford, it’s pretty much impossible.”

However, we run a rule of how liverpool may file out for the game against Watford.
