Liverpool 2-0 Watford

Premier League, Anfield
December 14, 2019

Goals: Salah 38′, 90′

The Reds welcomed the Premier League‘s bottom-placed team to Merseyside, but the visitors didn’t perform like that.

The Hornets gave Liverpool a stern examination on a windy day, with Salah’s brilliant brace the difference between the two sides.

Salah produced a lovely turn and finish in the first half, before flicking home impudently in the dying minutes.

The three points are all that matter, as Jurgen Klopp‘s side pulled 11 points clear of Leicester and 17 ahead of Man City.

Here’s how supporters reacted to the result on Twitter, Facebook and This Is Anfield’s forums.


Salah was lauded, on a day when he shone brightest…

“Fantastic MOTOM from Salah this afternoon.”

Nik Reece on Facebook.

“A couple of moments of magnificent Mo magic made the difference.”

Alisson’s importance also came to the fore…


Firmino’s form is worrying, though…

“Firmino and Shaqiri weakest links today, Gomez impressive as usual.”

Andrew Fernando on Facebook.



But many hailed the gritty nature of the win…

“Tough tough match as it should be after a difficult away trip to RB! A rejuvenated Watford played well but 3 huge points now let’s go be champions of the world!”

VJ Sagaran on Facebook.

“Yet again a horrible scrap against a team which definitely benefited from a new-manager bounce. And yet again, our lads found a way. Three more points.”
