Reds ease past Watford

Liverpool kept pace with the chasing pack in the Premier League with a 3-0 victory over Watford on Saturday evening at Vicarage Road.

The Reds were trying to boss possession in the first quarter of an hour, but Javi Gratia’s charges were not giving them space with relentless pressing.

Troy Deeney and Gerard Deulofeu were particularly a thorn in the flesh for Jurgen Klopp’s troops.

Roberto Firmino nearly broke the deadlock for the Reds six minutes before the break after stealing possession just outside the box but his thumping low strike was saved by Watford goalkeeper Ben Foster.

Klopp’s men were relentless in the last minutes of the half but they could not find the breakthrough as the first stanza ended goalless.

Liverpool were probing for the elusive opener ten minutes into the second stanza, coming closer and closer but often being they were denied by Foster.

Salah found the breakthrough for the Reds in the 67th minute with strike inside the box after a low square ball from Sadio Mane, 0-1.

Trent Alexander-Arnold made it 2-0 for Klopp’s charges 14 minutes before time with a brilliant free-kick from 25-yards out that found the top corner.
