EPL 2016-17: Liverpool 6-1 Watford - 5 Talking Points from the Game.
Liverpool climbed to the top of the Premier League table, courtesy of an imperious performance at home against Watford on Sunday.
Liverpool climbed to the top of the Premier League table, courtesy of a comprehensive victory over Watford at Anfield on Sunday. It was the Reds, who began the proceedings when Sadio Mane found the back of the net from a Philippe Coutinho cross in the 27th minute. Thereafter, it was a display of some amazing attacking football from the Reds as they continued to slice open Watford and found the back of the net on 5 further occasions via Coutinho, Emre Can, Roberto Firmino, Georginio Wijnaldum and Mane.
While Watford did pull one back through a Daryl Janmaat goal in the 75th minute, it was too little too less to impact the result of the game as the Hornets were completely outclassed by the Reds.

In this segment, we bring to you, the 5 talking points from the game between Liverpool and Watford.
#1 There is no denying the identity of this Liverpool side
Even a brief look at their play leaves one with no doubt that this is a Jurgen Klopp side. They press together, attack together, are unselfish in their approach and can knock the stuffing out of the best of the teams with their intensity throughout the 90 minutes.
The Reds were in marauding form yet again against Watford, constantly breaking their defense when in possession and extensively pressing the opposition when they were without the ball at their feet. While scoring 6 goals is a mean feat in itself, the Jurgen Klopp side could have gotten at least a couple more goals and were only denied by Costal Pantilimon.
The German has developed a penchant for teams that believe that attack is the best form of defense and that was the case against Watford, where they continuously pushed Watford on the back foot and offered them very little time and space on the ball.
