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 …

 

Watford 

 

Gomes 5

Gave away penalty and rushed out unneccessarily for Salah goal. A liability at times.

 

Janmaat 6

Started well, but was forced off early with injury

 

Kaboul 6

 

Decent in keeping Firmino quiet in first half, but fell asleep for ball over the top that led to Liverpools second goal.

 

Britos 6

Solid display. Made himself a nuisance from set pieces and bundled in late equaliser.

 

Holebas 7

Really good shift down the left, covers a huge amount of ground.

 

Cleverley 6

Neat and tidy at times without ever looking like he’d make any meaningful impact. Story of his career.

 

Doucouré 7

Battled away well in the centre and popped up in the box for Watford’s second.

 

Chalobah 7

Decent display, looks comfortable at this level.

 

Amrabat 7

Worked tirelessly down the flank, caused Moreno problems.

 

Okaka 8

A beast. Liverpool couldn’t handle the big target-man especially in the first half. Good finish for opener.

 

Pereyra 7

Looked bright, Marco Silva will be hoping the injury that forced him off at the start of the second half is not serious.

Subs

 

Kiko 5

Caught out badly ball watching for Salah goal.

 

Gray 6

Runs in behind gave Liverpool defence something different to deal with, didn’t get the chance he craved however.

 

Richarlson 7

Put himself about and was involved in equaliser.

 

Liverpool

 

Mignolet 5

Unconvincing. A good goalkeeper but not for a top-four side.

 

Matip 5

Sloppy in possession at times and like most of Liverpools defence very poor in first half.

 

Lovren 5

Needed to box clever against man-mountain Okaka, didn’t and struggled.

 

Moreno 5

Erratic as usual. Suprsied he’s still at club let alone starting the season opener.

 

Alexander-Arnold 8

Kept his head when all else around him were losing it in first-half. Looks a real player, set-piece delivery excellent.

 

Can 7

Lovely flick for Mane goal and one outrageous first touch taking down a high ball. Goes all Caninho at Vicarge road for some reason.

 

Henderson 7

Kept things ticking over in midfield with some decent passing. Is that enough for a Liverpool captain though ?

 

Wijnaldum 5

Coughed up possession poorly on a couple of occasions. Bad day at the office for the Holland international.

 

Salah 8

Recovered well from a poor first-half performance, came alive in second-half, winning penalty and netting Liverpool’s third.

 

Firmino 7

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.

Subs

 

Gomez 5

Gave away silly free-kick in corner that led to equaliser.

 

Milner N/A

No impact.

 

Origi N/A

No impact.
