Liverpool were in excellent form as they sealed a 6-1 victory at home to an in-form Watford at Anfield on Sunday afternoon.

Liverpool 6-1 Watford

Premier League, Anfield
November 6, 2016

Goals: Mane 28′, 60′, Coutinho 31′, Can 43′, Firmino 57′, Wijnaldum 90′; Janmaat 75′

Extending their unbeaten run to 12 games, the Reds steamrollered the Hornets on Merseyside.

Goalscorers Sadio Mane, Philippe Coutinho, Roberto Firmino and Emre Can all produced emphatic displays, while goalkeeper Loris Karius will be disappointed not to cap an improved showing with a clean sheet, after Daryl Janmaat’s consolation effort.

Adding the icing on the cake, 18-year-old midfielder Ovie Ejaria made his Premier League debut and Georginio Wijnaldum scored his first goal for the club to help Liverpool go top after 11 games.

Here’s how supporters reacted on social media throughout Liverpool’s 6-1 win.


Liverpool started strongly, with Coutinho, Firmino and Lucas Leiva all going close…


But it was Mane who netted the Reds’ first, heading home Coutinho’s cross…


Coutinho then got his name on the scoresheet…


Before Can made it 3-0 with a strong header before half-time…


More great work from Adam Lallana saw him set up Firmino for Liverpool’s fourth…


Firmino showcased his industry in setting up Mane for 5-0…


But Janmaat denied an impressive Karius a clean sheet…


To seal the win, Wijnaldum netted his first Liverpool goal…


…and after a 6-1 triumph, the Reds went top of the Premier League!
