Watford vs Liverpool 12/8/2017
Curiously, Liverpool have emerged victorious in each of their last four opening day fixtures, after failing to win any of the previous four. The Reds are coming off a stellar pre-season, where they won five out of seven matches. That included impressive 3-0 wins over Bayern Munich and Hertha Berlin. The frighteningly fast wingers Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah will be a nightmare for the Watford fullbacks, and this could be where the game is won. Meanwhile, Watford will be eager to unleash their club record signing, Andre Gray. The former Burnley man is also renowned for his pace and trickiness. Emre Can scored the winner here last season, a brilliant bicycle kick from the edge of the penalty box.
