The goals keep flowing as Watford and Liverpool played out a enthralling 3-3 draw at Vicarage Road today. Lets have a look at how the players performed …
Gave away penalty and rushed out unneccessarily for Salah goal. A liability at times.
Started well, but was forced off early with injury
Decent in keeping Firmino quiet in first half, but fell asleep for ball over the top that led to Liverpools second goal.
Solid display. Made himself a nuisance from set pieces and bundled in late equaliser.
Really good shift down the left, covers a huge amount of ground.
Neat and tidy at times without ever looking like he’d make any meaningful impact. Story of his career.
Battled away well in the centre and popped up in the box for Watford’s second.
Decent display, looks comfortable at this level.
Worked tirelessly down the flank, caused Moreno problems.
A beast. Liverpool couldn’t handle the big target-man especially in the first half. Good finish for opener.
Looked bright, Marco Silva will be hoping the injury that forced him off at the start of the second half is not serious.
Caught out badly ball watching for Salah goal.
Runs in behind gave Liverpool defence something different to deal with, didn’t get the chance he craved however.
Put himself about and was involved in equaliser.
Unconvincing. A good goalkeeper but not for a top-four side.
Sloppy in possession at times and like most of Liverpools defence very poor in first half.
Needed to box clever against man-mountain Okaka, didn’t and struggled.
Erratic as usual. Suprsied he’s still at club let alone starting the season opener.
Kept his head when all else around him were losing it in first-half. Looks a real player, set-piece delivery excellent.
Lovely flick for Mane goal and one outrageous first touch taking down a high ball. Goes all Caninho at Vicarge road for some reason.
Kept things ticking over in midfield with some decent passing. Is that enough for a Liverpool captain though ?
Coughed up possession poorly on a couple of occasions. Bad day at the office for the Holland international.
Recovered well from a poor first-half performance, came alive in second-half, winning penalty and netting Liverpool’s third.
Anonymous in first half, but much like Salah made decisive contributions in second period. Well taken penalty.
Mané 8 ( MOTM )
Classy finish for first goal and movement superb throughout. Arguably more important than want-away play-maker Coutinho.
Gave away silly free-kick in corner that led to equaliser.
