Liverpool Thrash Watford To Go Top

English Premier League 

Report: Liverpool 6-1 Watford

Date: 06 November 2016

Venue: Anfield

Senegal star, Sadio Mane, who is set to face Bafana Bafana next week, netted a brace to help Liverpool claim a 6-1 win over Watford.

Liverpool were applying pressure early on and should have gotten the lead as Lucas came very close and also Coutinho, who hit the post.

The pressure paid off in the 27th minute as Sadio Mane opened the scoring. Philippe Coutinho combined with Milner from a short corner and curled a wonderful cross to which Mane met with a brilliant glancing header to make it 1-0.

Coutinho made it 2-0 in the 30th minute with venomous strike from distance that gave Gomes no chance in between the sticks.

Emre Can increased the lead to 3-0 in the 43rd minute. Lallana delivered an inch-perfect cross into the area, where the German was on hand to head home.

Roberto Firmino made it 4-0 in the 57th minute. He struck from point-blank range, after getting on the end of Lallana's cross,

Liverpool were flooding forward with Firmino racing into the end of Henderson's pass. The Brazilian held up the play in the area before slipping a lovely pass into the path of Mane who slotted into the back of the net for his second and Liverpool's fifth in the 60th minute.

Watford found a consolation goal in the 75th minute through Daryl Janmaat, who fired home from close range.

Georginio Wajnaldum made it 6-1 in added time with a finish from close range, after Daniel Sturridge's effort was saved by Gomes.
