Liverpool have placed themselves at the head of the Premier League table by defeating Watford 6-1. They had all to play for and they didn’t miss a single thing.
Mane was the first to score for Liverpool, with his goal in the 27th minute. Coutinho then doubled the scoreline three minutes later. The Reds just wanted more and more!
The third goal was netted by Can just before half time and, in the second half, Liverpool continued their goal spree! Firmino netted the fourth goal in the 57th minute and, three minutes later, Mane netted his second goal of the match. As the roars of the Liverpool fans got louder, Watford got quieter!
Janmaat managed to net a goal for Watford in the 75th minute. However, this was of course just for consolation. In fact, the Reds soon minimised this effort with their final goal in extra time. They just had to have the last word- or the last goal in this case!
Liverpool has a total of 28 shots at goal, 17 of which were on target! By the looks of things, it could have been a lot worse for Watford than 6-1.
This huge victory has taken Liverpool above Chelsea and up to top spot on the Premier League table! Now, if any team wants to catch up, they’re going to have to hope that Liverpool drops points and lets them.
