Salah scores in Watford, taking lead in 3-0 match

Liverpool v Fulham – Premier League – Anfield

Liverpool v Fulham – Premier League – Anfield

The 26-year-old has started all 12 of Liverpool FC's Premier League games so far this season and he looked to be in high spirits as he embraced Reds boss Klopp during a training session at Melwood on Thursday.

Liverpool next return to European duty when they face Paris Saint-Germain in a Champions League crunch clash on Wednesday.

Cruising to a comfortable, routine win over Watford, Liverpool could have been forgiven for thinking that things were going too well at Vicarage Road until Jordan Henderson's clumsy and foolish sending off.

'It was a really mature performance. "I'm not sure we had the ball that much in the past when we played here". We never controlled games in the manner we do now.

"If you don't do it you know they are able to score".

The manager also remarked, "We stayed stubborn".

"It was exactly how it had to be in our situation".

"I have to explain how hard things are. We have to win football games".

"It was still good".

Mohamed Salah, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Roberto Firmino ensured Liverpool kept up with the searing pace set by Premier League leaders Manchester City by scoring in a 3-0 win at Watford.

Alexander-Arnold curled home a fine free kick to make it 2-0 but then Henderson was shown a second yellow card for fouling Ettiene Capoue as Liverpool went down to 10 men. So, all good and I really think the players deserve it.

"Things like this happen". You have to constantly close down a player or space.

"I know a few people miss one or two situations which we had in the last season, especially the second part of the season. That's how it is".

With the score level Robertson clipped Will Hughes in the box but referee Jon Moss ignored the hosts' protests.

Defeat leaves ninth-placed Watford winless in their last three games but they were furious after being denied a second-half penalty. Today they did a really good job, and I like this game a lot because it was so hard.

Liverpool took a while to settle in the game, and their first big chance came after Xherdan Shaqiri's ball into the box nearly found Roberto Firmino.
