Nigeria forward Isaac Success was benched for 90 minutes as Watford succumbed to a 2-0 away defeat to Liverpool in their Premier League clash at Anfield on Saturday afternoon, reports Completesports.com.
Success has made three Premier League appearances for The Hornets this season.
Mohamed Salah’s superb double gave an under-par Liverpool side victory in the game.
After his goal in midweek, Salah showed he was back to his best again with a fine turn and curling finish to give Liverpool the lead seven minutes before the break, but that came sandwiched between two big Watford chances as both Abdoulaye Doucoure and Ismaila Sarr fluffed from fine positions.
In Nigel Pearson’s first game in charge, Watford caused more problems after the break as Alisson brilliantly denied both Sarr and Gerard Deulofeu, but Liverpool doubled their lead late on as Divock Origi’s miscued effort was cleverly flicked home by Salah at close range on the dot of 90 minutes.
The result leaves Liverpool 11 points clear of Leicester before the Saturday 3pm kick-offs, and 17 clear of third-place Manchester City before the Pep Guardiola’s men go to Arsenal on Super Sunday.Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
