Play­ers to watch

Sport360 - - Football | Premier League -


The Brazil­ian has not only brought an X-Fac­tor to Wat­ford’s at­tack, but he is clearly rel­ish­ing the dirty work as well if his de­fen­sive stats are any­thing to go by. The early signs sug­gest he will be an EPL star for years to come. Likely line-ups


The Bel­gian has had a rel­a­tively slow start to the sea­son while play­ing in a slightly deeper role, yet there is no doubt what Pep Guardi­ola thinks of him. Guardi­ola stated “he is one of the best play­ers I’ve ever seen” after the win against Feyeno­ord – high praise from a for­mer Barca coach.

Sta­dium – Vicarage Road

Team news: De­fend­ers Kiko Fe­me­nia and Younes Kaboul both went off in­jured in last week’s win over Southamp­ton but only the for­mer is in con­tention. Se­bas­tian Prodl, Craig Cath­cart and Mauro Zarate are still in­jured and Miguel Bri­tos is sus­pended.

Back in the fray: Philippe Coutinho is ready to start for Liver­pool again.

Team news: Cap­tain Vin­cent Kom­pany is back in train­ing after in­jury but this game may have come too early for him. Eder­son should play de­spite his run-in with Sa­dio Mane last week, and Ra­heem Ster­ling has served his suspension.
