Mohamed Salah continues to prove his form when he put four goals past Watford goalie – and apologised to him after the match – as Liverpool moved up to third in the Premier League table by thrashing Watford at Anfield.
Salah danced through Watford’s defence to score early in the game before poking home Andy Robertson’s cross late in the first half.
He set up Roberto Firmino’s clever flick for Liverpool’s third, then added two late strikes to complete the rout.
Liverpool have now opened a seven-point gap over Chelsea in fifth.
Jurgen Klopp’s side also remain unbeaten at home in the Premier League this season.
It was Watford’s second successive defeat, and despite chances for
Roberto Pereyra and Richarlison, they never looked like getting back into the game.
But the Hornets are still eight points above the relegation zone and sit comfortably in 11th position.
