Premier League – 8th day: Liverpool have fun at Watford (0-5) and take control of the standings

by archysport

There was a world of difference between Watford and Liverpool. The Reds, who remained on two draws against Brentford (3-3) and Manchester City (2-2) in the league, won without difficulty at Vicarage Road Stadium this Saturday (0-5), on the eighth day of Premier League. A real lesson that allows Jürgen Klopp’s men to temporarily take the lead in the championship, pending the trip from Chelsea to Brentford (6.30 p.m.). For Claudio Ranieri’s first game at the head of Watford, his players delivered a very poor copy. The Hornets are provisionally in 15th place.

Ranieri had promised his players to buy them dinner if they didn’t concede a goal this afternoon. But the mission quickly turned to failure. Completely amorphous, the Hornets gave in from the first minutes when Mohamed Salah, with a caress from the outside of the foot, found Sadio Mané near the surface. The Senegalese striker did not miss his chance, scoring his hundredth goal in the Premier League (0-1, 9th). A mark reached by only two African players before him: Didier Drogba and his teammate Mohamed Salah.

Another fantastic goal from Salah

The Liverpool attacking trio showed themselves in the face of the dying Hornets. Firmino, preferred to Diogo Jota, took the opportunity to score a hat-trick. At the end of the first half, the Brazilian striker was at the conclusion of a beautiful movement initiated by Mané and Milner (0-2, 37th) before worsening the mark on return from the locker room, on the lookout for a ball repelled by Foster (0-3, 52nd). The former Hoffenheim player even allowed himself to score a final goal in added time (0-5, 90th + 1), while the game was long overdue.

As for Mohamed Salah, already author of a grandiose goal against Manchester City two weeks ago, he did it again this Saturday. After a festival in the area of ​​Watford, the Egyptian international, untenable on his right side, scored his seventh goal in the Premier League this season, with a beautiful curled shot (0-4, 54th).

Almost never threatened by Watford, despite some opportunities for Ismaïla Sarr at the end of the match, the Reds are starting a busy week in the best possible way. They will continue on Tuesday on the lawn of Atlético de Madrid in the Champions League, before a new trip next weekend, to Old Trafford, to challenge Manchester United. Two high-stakes meetings where adversity should, this time, be significantly higher.
