Monday night at the Vicarage road, and it was Liverpool who came out as leaders…. Phillipe Coutinho came off early, what looked like a dead leg. Adam Lallana came on for Philippe Coutinho. Lallana was bright in the game, had great footwork, great vision, considering that he just came back from injury. The reds were fairly quiet, but out of everybody it was Emre Can that makes the headlines for tonight. A brilliant crafted attack from Adam Lallana, a great pass from Lucas, sends it on to Emre Can, and BANG…. A brilliant overhead kick from the German. What is his 5th goal of the season, and what’s more astonishing is that Lucas has got 3 assists in just 5 games, equalling Manchester United’s midfielder Paul Pogba. Watford however, had a quiet game throughout the second half, but were the dangerous on the counter attack in the second half. Sebastian Prodl’s strike in the dying minutes almost put them level… But Liverpool grabbed all 3 points and are marching towards the Champions Leauge…
Simon Mignolet 7.5
He couldn’t do much in the game, but whenever we needed him to clear the ball, he did his job with ease, and we’ve gotten a clean sheet…
Nathaniel Clyne 8
Great match from Clyney. Great performance and was full of energy today.
Dejan Lovren 7.5
Did really well today, and a big improvement from the Crystal Palace game.
Joel Matip 8
Solid like a rock. Great performance from Matip, and I just love when me makes those runs all the way from defence. He almost gave an assist to Divock Origi, and Divock Origi almost gave an assist to Joel Matip…
James Milner 8
450th appearance for Milner in the Premier Leauge… And what a way to celebrate it.
Lucas Leiva 8
Lucas has improved in the last couple of games. What could’ve been his last start for Liverpool, as Adam Lallana is back… Lucas was brilliant and has now given 3 assists in the last 5 games
Emre Can 9 (MOTM)
What a performance, and what a goal! Don’t know what else I should say except for the goal 🙂
Georgino Wijnaldum 5.5
Appauling… His worst match in a reds shirt perhaps.
Roberto Firmino 6
Not the best performance from the Brazilian. He was not good at all.
Divock Origi 4
What could I say? He’s been rubbish in the past few games. He’s been out of form. Sturridge, who just played less than 10 minutes almost scored a goal, and was contributing more into the team.
Phillipe Coutinho N/A
Get Well Soon Phillipe.
Adam Lallana 8.5
Great performance… What a way to comeback after being out injured for a month. Had brilliant foot work and just almost scored a brilliant goal.
Daniel Sturridge 7
Had a run on the pitch, and almost scored.
Ragnar Klavan N/A
Should’ve gone home instead
