Firmino could make his 250th Reds start in all competitions today. He needs two goals to record 50 for Liverpool away from Anfield in all competitions.
Liverpool’s No. 9 has found the net five times in nine encounters with today’s opponents.
Forty-eight goals have been scored in the last 14 league encounters between Liverpool and Watford, with the Reds netting 35 and the Hornets 13.
There have been no goalless draws in all league meetings, with all 26 coming in the top flight.
Liverpool scored 27 goals in the last nine meetings home and away, conceding seven in that time, with six coming in two games.
Liverpool have kept 10 clean sheets in the last 14 meetings with the Hornets in league and cup and have kept five in the last seven league clashes – conceding three goals in each of the other two.
They have conceded three goals in three of their last five league visits.
An all-time record
The Reds could become the first top-flight club in history to score three or more goals in seven successive away games in all competitions.
They are the only team to do so in six, having now equalled their own record set in 2017.
Watford have won 19 of their last 23 league games at home, picking up 59 points from a possible 69 at Vicarage Road, winning all of their last nine home games.
The loss to Wolves is the only instance of them not scoring at home in the league in 2021, having last failed to do so against Cardiff on December 5.
Claudio Ranieri is Watford’s 18th permanent managerial appointment in the last 13 years and he is the fourth in this decade alone.
He is now the Premier League’s oldest current manager and will celebrate his 70th birthday on October 20.
This is his 20th job as a manager, including a spell as the Greece coach in 2014.
He was Fabinho’s coach during their time at Monaco.
