Surely, the Reds were hoping to complete the entire league campaign on an unbeaten run and were almost there like Arsenal did it in 2003-04 and Preston North End in 1888-89. However, Liverpool is all set to reign as the champions of the Premier League for the first time in 30 years as their nearest rivals are second-placed, Manchester City with a gap of 22 points.

That being said, their invincibility was surely destroyed on Saturday.

Watford came after losing five Premier League games in a row. Their first attempt to score came in the first half with Gerard Deulofeu being the main challenger. He was however brought out of the ground on a stretcher owing to a knee injury. On being asked about it later, manager Nigel Pearson said that the injury was bad.

The first goal of the game came at the 54th minute with Senegalese winger, Sarr’s close-range shot. Liverpool couldn’t deal with a simple throw-in and then, following an assist from Will Hughes, Sarr ran forward and capitalized on the backheel and scored the goal in the 60th minute by striking the ball over advancing goalkeeper, Alisson.

The third goal came after Sarr intercepted a poor pass from Trent Alexander-Arnold and set up captain Deeney, who scored the 72nd-minute goal to make it 3-0 for the home team.

Liverpool tried to fight back with Adam Lallana’s attempt to hit the post but they seemed completely powerless, perhaps for the first time in this season against Watford.

After the match, Liverpool captain, Virgil van Dijk said that they will keep going and were looking forward to winning their next match in the FA Cup and then the league game against Bournemouth.
