Watford Trash Liverpool 3-0 To Stop The Champions Winning Streak
Watford caused a monumental upset after becoming the first team to beat Liverpool in the Premier League this season with Ismaila Sarr’s second-half double helping to condemn the league leaders to a stunning 3-0 loss at Vicarage Road on Saturday.
Sarr nipped in to break the deadlock after 54 minutes, before then racing through to double the Hornets’ lead six minutes later.
Ismaila Sarr has been superb today. A match-winning performance from the Watford forward – two goals, one assist. Who had him in their fantasy team?!
Watford captain Troy Deeney rounded off the incredible scoreline after taking advantage of yet more sluggish defending from the visitors with 18 minutes left to play.
Nigel Pearson’s side move out of the relegation zone thanks to a first league win since December 28, while Liverpool remain 22 points ahead of Manchester City, albeit having now played a game more than the champions.
