With four days to defy PSG at the Parc des Princes in the champions League, Liverpool did not tremble against Watford (3-0) on the 13th day of the Premier League. Mohamed Salah took the opportunity to score his seventh goal of the season in the league.
Before defying PSG two months ago in the champions League, Liverpool had been confident in bringing down Tottenham (2-1) in the Premier League. This Saturday, with four days to go back to Paris for the fifth and penultimate day of the group phase of the C1 (to be followed exclusively on RMC Sport), the Reds once again assured by crushing Watford (3-0) in the league. If they didn’t get it all at Vicarage Road, they gave a realistic lesson to the timid Hornets.
This victory, which only took shape in the second half, allows Liverpool to stay two lengths ahead of the leader Manchester City, who took only one bite of West Ham (4-0), and to temporarily take five points ahead of Chelsea.
Salah still decisive
To win their tenth Premier League win of the season, the men of Jürgen Klopp were able to count on their top scorer, Mohamed Salah (seven achievements), who opened the scoring at 67th on a center from the left of Sadio Mané. Trent Alexander-Arnold took it upon himself to double the bet to 76th, on a sublime direct free-kick.
In the 89th, Roberto Firmino definitely killed the little suspense that remained of a head cover after a ball pushed back by Ben Foster on a heavy Mané shot. Watford is now in ninth place in a three-game winless series.
