“Relief. Job Done” – Fans react to Liverpool’s 1-0 victory over Watford

Liverpool edged one step closer to securing Champions League football with a crucial 1-0 victory over Watford at Vicarage Road on Monday evening.

Watford 0-1 Liverpool

Premier League, Vicarage Road
May 01, 2017

Goals: Can 47′,

The Reds were bolstered by the return of Adam Lallana and Daniel Sturridge, who both made the bench following injury absences.

Lallana’s introduction came much earlier than expected as Philippe Coutinho was forced to leave the field after 12 minutes following a knock.

The midfielder almost opened the scoring with a left-footed volley which ricocheted off the crossbar but it was Emre Can‘s sensational overhead kick which stunned the crowd just moments before half-time to give Liverpool the lead.

It was a slow first half but Can’s strike seemed to give Liverpool the edge as they went into the second period and Divock Origi, Dejan Lovren and Lallana all had further efforts on goal.

Liverpool controlled possession but neither team were able to add to the scoreline as the visitors saw out a crucial victory, with Reds fans suffering a heart in the mouth moment as Watford hit the bar in the last minute of stoppage time.

Here are all the best reactions from Liverpool supporters on social media throughout the game;
