Liverpool maintained their stunning start to the season despite limping past bottom of the table Watford at Anfield.
The Reds were far from at their best in the early kick-off, but Mohamed Salah’s curling effort late in the first half ultimately made the difference before he killed off the game with a cheeky backheeled finish late on.
The Egyptian was the source of most of Liverpool’s threat, along with Sadio Mane on the opposite flank, as a lack of fast supply from midfield limited their ability to break down the struggling Hornets.
