  • Jurgen Klopp hugs Sadio Mane

Alexander-Arnold whipped the free-kick into the top corner from 25 yards out, completing a stunning strike to give Liverpool vital breathing space and make Watford heads drop, as the Reds went on to win 3-0.

'I am really happy about the way [we did it]'.

"At this fantastic big club with their outstanding teams in the past, that this group of players can get this record is nice".

"I think they were both yellow cards but things like this happen if you play in a defensive midfield situation", Klopp explained.

Alexander-Arnold scored a brilliant free-kick with Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino also on target against the Hornets. Controlling it and staying in that mode, being positive, that's new for us.

Alisson will be expecting to feature for the Reds when they return to Premier League action on Saturday with a trip to Watford. We have to win football games week in and week out.

Jurgen Klopp would not be drawn on criticising Jordan Henderson for a red card that rules him out of the Merseyside derby, but said the Liverpool captain's dismissal was "not so nice".


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

"In a few moments, the tempo change could have been a bit more obvious but even then, we had our chances".

"How we closed down the game was just brilliant, especially the third goal. I know people miss one or two situations from last season but we have these games".

Salah opened the scoring from close range after 67 minutes but only after Watford were denied a penalty when Andy Robertson felled Will Hughes in the box.

"The last two games we have been unlucky with some decisions but I prefer to always support referees and if I don't say anything about their work in these two games I will not do it for the rest of the season", said the Spaniard.

The Croatia global won 100 per cent of his duels in the first half, with Van Dijk leading the team in total passes (76) and touches (80) during the same period. Today they did a really good job, and I like this game a lot because it was so hard.
