  • Liverpool striker Roberto Firmino could miss out against Watford tonight

City kept up the pressure on the Premier League leaders as they claimed a hard-fought 1-0 win over Zabaleta's current side West Ham on Wednesday.

Liverpool's 5-0 win over Watford was notable for the fact all five goals were assisted by the full-backs - two for Andrew Robertson, and three for the outstanding Trent Alexander-Arnold, whose Beckham-esque deliveries caused problems all night.

Liverpool returned to their swaggering best and retained a slender lead in the Premier League with a 5-0 thrashing of Watford on Wednesday that was powered by two goals apiece from Sadio Mane and Virgil van Dijk.

Klopp insists he is only focused on his side's results and can not be surprised whenever Pep Guardiola's men pick up victories.

"A colleague of yours asked me if it is because of his performance in his last game against Manchester United [last season] and I really had to think: 'What was that?"

They would have scored a consolation goal had Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson Becker not pulled off two great second-half saves from Watford striker Andre Gray.

Can Liverpool stay top of the table with a derby win? That's how it is.

Liverpool and City have four common opponents still to play - Burnley, Cardiff, Fulham and Tottenham - but it is City who have the tougher assignment outside of those fixtures. "We might even see him on Saturday against Southampton again", he said. All the rest in the game was exceptional.


"The crosses were the most obvious thing because they were really brilliant [but also] the positioning in the box, heading, the runs, the direction, the desire, the composure".

And they managed to get all three points in emphatic fashion. "Tomorrow is another day and we have to deal with all the things".

"We were not sure and that's why he didn't play against United, that was the only reason".

Watford boss Javi Gracia said Liverpool were deserved winners. Kepa Arrizabalaga was dropped to the bench as punishment for refusing to be substituted in Chelsea's League Cup final loss to Man City on Sunday.

"Of course, the fans of Everton don't want us to win anything and probably for our fans it's the same the other way".

"But what gave me the comfort to move is what we put in place there was going to stabilise the club going forward. we left the club in a very good position".

"The boys showed how much they enjoy the game and the situation", a delighted Klopp told the BBC. "We had a couple of chances that we could have taken". "Maybe one would have changed the game but it wasn't possible to have options".
