Liverpool have been one of the entertaining teams to watch in the Premier League, scoring goals for fun, and the same was witnessed once again as Reds tore apart Watford at Anfield on Sunday. With five different players scoring for Liverpool, it was an all-round performance from the Reds to go top of the Premier League table.
Their only negative for the entire ninety minutes might have been the goal, which they conceded in second half. Despite failing to keep that clean sheet, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp must be pleased with his team's amazing performance right from the first whistle. Liverpool, who troubled Watford early on, could not find the opening goal in the first 20 minutes, but players like Lucas Leiva and Philippe Coutinho came close.
However, after Sadio Mane scored his first goal of the match in the 27th minute, it was all about Liverpool and their front three, which included Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino. It was the former, who scored the second goal while Emre Can also found the back of the net before the break.
Liverpool could have scored more goals in the first half, but they missed some easy chances as well. The second half was no different for Liverpool, who continued their impressive performance, making Watford look foolish at the back. In fact, it was the interplay of Liverpool's front three, which was causing them all sorts of problems.
Liverpool found their fourth and fifth goal of the match, with Firmino and Mane scoring in the 57th and 60th minute respectively. With thirty minutes still left to play, Liverpool were hungry for more goals, asking serious questions at Watford goal.
Watford were completely outplayed in the first hour, but they looked decent, and played some decent football in the second half after going five down. The comeback was out of the question, but they did test the Liverpool goalkeeper Loris Karius, and finally managed to score a consolation goal in the 75th minute as Daryl Janmaat found the back of the net with a cool finish.
Daniel Sturridge, who had come as a substitute, also got into the action and linked with the Reds offensive players brilliantly. He came close to goal as his left-footed shot hit the crossbar twice in the last 20 minutes. And another shot of his was palmed away by Watford goalkeeper Costel Pantilimonin the 91st minute towards Georginio Wijnaldum, who scored Liverpool's sixth to wrap up a clinical performance from the home side.
