To talk about Watford’s current performance, we can hardly use the word stable. In the Premier League table at the moment, Watford is ranked 15th with 7 points. They are only 4 points ahead of Burnley’s 18th position. Therefore, Watford is probably “ready” to enter the relegation battle from this point on, having appointed coach Claudio Ranieri. However, their opponent in this round is Liverpool. And it is quite impossible to aim to get 3 points against this opponent.
The most obvious proof of Watford’s level in this tournament is the results of the last 5 matches. Specifically, they only got 1 win against Norwich. On the contrary, they had 1 draw and received 3 defeats. In the last match as a guest at Leeds, Watford finished with the minimum score.
