The Hornets were second best facing EPL soon to be crowned champions at Vicarage Road.
Watford was one of the bottoms placed teams on the table, and no extraordinary performance was expected from Nigel Pearson’s side playing against the world champions.
Liverpool last lost was January 2019 to Manchester City.
The home side needed a Savior and there came Ismaila Sarr to their rescue.
Pearson’s side dominated the first half, but no goal to show for it.
In the 54th minute Ismaila Sarr gave the host a 1-0 lead after a right footed shot from a very close range with an assist from Abdoulaye Doucoure.
Four minutes after the first goal, Ismaila Sarr scored his second of the day with a right footed shot from inside the box, assisted by Troy Deeney.
The game was put beyond the reach of Liverpool when Troy Deeney scored with a right footed shot that saw the Brazilian shot-stopper beaten for the third time in the day’s game. 3-0.
Nigel Pearson Watford coach speaking after the match “It’s such an important win for us. But it is one win. Our season has been tough so far, with losing last week and not playing well, we were keen to get a response.
“They are such an outstanding side, we had to get our performance right – as close to max as possible – and I thought we thoroughly deserved the win.
We threatened with the ball and defended with discipline, energy, and commitment. That’s been the message from day one.
“It’s in our own hands, and we have to deliver that performance week in, week out.”
Could this be the win that could transform Watford’s season and propel them to garner more points for EPL survival?
Liverpool held the position for the team with the second-longest unbeaten run (44) in the English Premier League.
