Watford Draw First Blood
It only took 9 minutes for the home side to get on the scoresheet as Okaka sneaked into the box to score an easy header unmarked. Liverpool’s Emre Can played a deft touch in the path of Mane after a great one two, Mane bent the ball into the net. 1 all in the 29th minute. 


Liverpool Lapse
Liverpool’s equalizer lasted 3 minutes as Doucoure capitalized on a defensive error from Liverpool, making it 2 – 1. More drama continued as Mo Salah was brought down in the box by a late challenge by goalkeeper, Gomes. Firmino coolly sent the keeper the wrong way, 2- 2.

Salah on Debut
Liverpool continued the pressure as Lovren's long ball picked out Firmino who chipped past Gomes who was off his line, the pass found Salah who scored on debut from close range, giving Liverpool the lead for the first time in the match, 3 - 2.

Spoils Shared
Liverpool’s set piece defence was left to be questioned as Mignolet’s attempted punch of the ball hit the cross bar, and landed in the path of Britos who scored late in injury time to finish the match at 3 – 3.
