“Not free-flowing, but an excellent away performance” – Fans react to 3-0 win at Watford

A second-half flurry was enough to turn frustration into elation for Liverpool and secure a 3-0 victory at Watford.

Watford 0-3 Liverpool

Premier League, Vicarage Road
November 24, 2018

Goals: Salah 67′, Alexander-Arnold 76′, Firmino 88′

For large parts of the encounter at Vicarage Road Liverpool were left to grow increasingly frustrated as their rhythm and forward impetus continued to elude them on their return from the international break.

Jurgen Klopp’s men struggled to break down a stubborn Watford outfit in the first half, but Liverpool’s star man in Mohamed Salah was again on hand in the second term to land a fatal blow and send the Reds on their way to collect all three points.

A stunning free-kick from Trent Alexander-Arnold and a late goal from Roberto Firmino ensured all three points head back to Merseyside, but it was not without late drama as Jordan Henderson needlessly found himself shown a red card after a second bookable offence.

Here’s how supporters reacted to the result on social media and our forums.

The victory was not straightforward, but fans were pleased to see the Reds continue their winning ways…

“A win is a win. All us fans know a year or 2 ago we lose games like this. Now it’s 3-0 wins. Ill take it.”
Imran Khan on Facebook.


“Tough place to go Watford and get 3pts..well done boys and a clean sheet.”
Stephen Lefebvre on Facebook.

“Feels like a big result to come out and batter them second half. We were patient and it has paid off – this is the blueprint Klopp is trying to install this season.” – RedForever2014 on the forums.


Fans were less impressed with Henderson’s needless dismissal…

Don’t mind a player showing a bit of passion, getting stuck in, taking the obvious yellow but FFS Henderson should know better.
Maybe Klopp should have subbed him earlier but he’s the club Captain and an experienced one at that. Keep your mouth shut and do the simple stuff.” – T.C.B on the forums.


“What an absolute idiot. Ridiculous attempt at a tackle.

Clueless.” – Redsi73 on the forums.



Despite collecting three points, frustrations continue to simmer over positional changes which have hindered both Firmino and Salah…


“Whilst we continue to accommodate Mo going through the middle, we will nullify Bobbys’ effectiveness, it just isn’t working…….awful half of football.” – Libero on the forums.

“Yeah I don’t understand playing 3 forwards in positions that are not their best.
Salah is better on the right side cutting in.

Bobby is better at 9.
Shaqiri is better at 10.

Why is 75% of the front four out of position?”- RedForever2014 on the forums.
