Liverpool Create English Top-Flight Record In 5-0 Win At Watford

Liverpool Create English Top-Flight Record In 5-0 Win At Watford

Liverpool’s 5-0 bashing of Watford in Saturday’s Premier League early kick-off saw them break a top-flight record.

Roberto Firmino scored a hat-trick, while Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah both got on the score sheet as Liverpool went top of the Premier League table.


Liverpool have now scored three or more goals in each of their last seven away games in all competitions. According to Opta, that is a record in English top-flight history.

That run stretches back to the penultimate game of the 2020/21 Premier League season when Liverpool beat Burnley 3-0 at Turf Moor on May 19.

Since then Liverpool have picked up 3-0 wins over Norwich and Leeds in the Premier League and Norwich once again in the Carabao Cup.

They then drew 3-3 at Brentford and thrashed Porto 5-1 in Portugal before completing the streak with the 5-0 win over Watford

Another statistic which highlights how good Liverpool were – but also how poor Watford were – relates to Ranieri.

The game was Ranieri’s first in charge of Watford, his 226th match in the Premier League and his biggest ever defeat in the competition.

    My man Troost on the wrong end of a 5 nil shellacking. Sheeeesh!
    Watford were not as terrible as the score suggests. They just ran into a Liverpool side that were on another level. Crisp passing, deadly finishing. Danny Rose the left back had a day to forget, as he was turned inside out by Mo Salah.
    Bobby Firmino got the match-ball with a hattrick, all tap ins. Simple goals, but it takes a special kind of striker to score goals like that, a striker with good positioning, a striker that gambles in the box that the ball will come. Today, the ball came 3 times for Firmino, and he grabbed what could be the easiest hattrick of his career. Hope Osimhen and co. are taking notes. Keep moving forward, expect the ball to come in. It just might!
    Mo Salah’s goal was a replica of his effort last week, and he has now equaled Didier Drogba’s record as the highest scoring African in Premier League history, with a cool 104 goals.
