Watford 3-0 Liverpool
Premier League, Vicarage Road
February 29, 2020
Goals: Sarr 54′, 60′, Deeney 73′
It was a stubborn start from the hosts as they looked to sit back and absorb pressure before attempting to catch the Reds on the break when provided the opportunity.
The Hornets, meanwhile, asked a number of questions of Alisson and Liverpool’s defensive line which left a lot to consider at the break.
But it was all Watford in the second as while Liverpool had been provided the warning signals, they did not react.
Ismaila Sarr twice capitalised from the Reds’ inability to defend a throw-in before Troy Deeney landed the final blow on what was truly an evening to forget for Klopp and Co.
After 44 games unbeaten, the run has ended and now Liverpool must pick themselves back up for the trip to Chelsea in midweek in the FA Cup before another relegation-threatened side in Bournemouth make the trip to Anfield on Saturday.
