On a night when Emre Can's moment of inspiration won a rather uninspiring game for Liverpool, they would not care less. They have a priceless three points in the race for a spot in next season's Champions League. That is all we have for tonight. It has been fun bringing this to you, this is Aaditya Narayan signing off. Do get in touch with me on Twitter @Aaditya_LFC if you have anything to say about the game. Cheers!
An absolutely world class goal from Emre Can at the end of the first half gave Liverpool the win in this game, and you have to say they deserved that win. Lallana and Sturridge had two good chances to increase Liverpool's lead, but Heurelho Gomes was absolutely brilliant in the Watford goal.
Liverpool defended pretty well, despite conceding that one opportunity to Prodl right at the end. Liverpool move to four points ahead of Manchester United, who have a game in hand on them. It was a big game for Liverpool to win, after the two Manchester Clubs had dropped points over the weekend, and they did win.
90+4' PRODL! CLANG! Cleverley put in a terrific cross into the area, Liverpool don't deal with it, and falls to the feet of Prodl, who blasts it, and beats Mignolet easily, but the woodwork denies him. Liverpool escape.
90' OHHH STURRIDGE, BRILLIANT! He shrugs Doucoure off the ball so easily, despite being a few stones smaller than the Watford man. He cuts in from the left and unleashes a right footed shot, that Gomes saves absolutely brilliantly down low to his right.
88' MATIP! The big Cameroonian strides forward from the back, and plays a nice one-two with Wijnaldum. He finds himself on the right side of the area, one-on-one with Gomes. The BRazilian blocks the shot for a Liverpool corner.
83' Almost for Watford! That came out of absolutely nothing. They played the ball out of defense, Doucoure drove past Firmino easily and played it to Janmaat on the left wing. His curling effort seemed very harmless at Mignolet's near post, but the goalkeeper looked a little alarmed and had to parry it away.
81' Woof, Emre Can! Not quite this time though! Firmino and Origi work it nicely between themselves on the left wing, before the Belgian plays it Emre Can. He looks to curl one in the top right corner, but the ball goes well wide, and very high.
76' WHAT A CHANCE, LALLANA SPURNS IT! Janmaat takes a poor shot from a Watford corner, and it breaks to Liverpool, who pour forward in numbers. Can releases Lallana at just the right moment, but Amrabat tracks back brilliantly and nicks it off Lallana's feet and puts it out for a corner.
72' More hardwork from Origi, more hardwork from Amrabat. Both are determined not to give each other an inch. In the end, the ball ricochets away to Milner, who cannot quite create anything from the byline.
68' OOH CAPOUE! What a hit! So unlucky! That was a good cross from Niang, but it is headed by Lovren straight to Amrabat. His strike is blocked by Wijnaldum towards Capoue. Wijnaldum charges out there too, Capoue's shot hits him and sails towards goal, where Mignolet palms it over the bar. The ref gives a goal kick and books the player for questioning the wrong decision.
