Watford 0-3 Liverpool: We Stayed Stubborn – Klopp
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp said his side were stubborn all through their English Premier League game against Watford which resulted in a 3-0 victory.
Mohamed Salah opened scoring to set Liverpool on their way to a victory over Watford, before Trent Alexander-Arnold's stunning free-kick and Roberto Firmino's tap-in added to the score for the Reds, but it was far from a comfortable afternoon for Jurgen Klopp's side, who had captain Jordan Henderson sent off in the second half.
An excited Klopp has good words for his players.
"We stayed stubborn. They defended and counter-attacked and we had a few really good moments we didn't score, which is not a big problem if we stay on track.
"How we closed down the game was just brilliant, especially the third goal. The first goal was brilliant football and the free-kick from Trent [Alexander-Arnold] was a dream. It was a good game against a good side."
But Watford manager Javi Gracia would not want to comment on the officiating.
"The game was closer than the scoreline. We tried, we did a good defensive job for 66 minutes and after that the game changed. We had opportunities and didn't take them. Everyone knows Liverpool are a great team.
"I prefer not to speak about refereeing decisions. We accept something that is difficult to accept - but we do it and there is nothing else we can do.
"We could do better in the first half on the counter-attack but playing against Liverpool is always very demanding.
"I am optimistic, I can feel the ambition of the club and I feel happy training here."
