Jurgen Klopp lavishes praise on Liverpool's Roberto Firmino

Goals from Mohamed Salah and Trent Alexander-Arnold secured all three points to stay in touch with Manchester City.

Not even Henderson's dismissal for two needless yellow cards - for fouls on Issac Success and Etienne Capoue could stop Liverpool unleashing their fine attacking prowess. "I'm really happy with him".

Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously had reported Liverpool stretched their unbeaten run in the Premier League to 13 games following their impressive victory over Watford at the Vicarage Road.

It has become apparent in recent Premier League seasons that there is very much a top six in the league, with all else falling into place behind them, leading to the notion of seventh place being 'best of the rest'.

Whilst goals have been hard to come by, Firmino was ever-present for the Reds during the win against Watford on Saturday.

"It is nice. This fantastic big club has had outstanding teams in the past, so for this group of players to get this record is nice".

"We all know the season isn't finished, and those records don't bring anything". It wasn't that clear we controlled the game.

Salah broke the deadlock with his ninth goal of the season, tapping in Sadio Mane's cross, and appeared to celebrate with a gesture which Sergio Ramos uses when he scores.

"It's not really the same, but it's in their mind about the sort of football we played last season".

"In the game against Fulham, 20 German coaches were in the stadium", said Klopp.

Klopp's previously free-scoring Reds have also added an element of steel to their performances this term and have now kept eight clean sheets - a joint-high with City.

"It all depends what you want to see, what you expect and what you compare it with", he said.

"Because they came back on Thursday - the Brazilians and Robbo [Robertson], for example. With the demands on set-pieces, you need your own set-pieces, you need to work on the specific quality of the opponent".

The game was deadlocked at 0-0 when Hughes went down inside the box under Robertson's challenge, with the Scotland worldwide insistent that he didn't make sufficient contact to fell the Watford man.

"In six league games we won two, drew three, and lost one - and, with a new club, that wasn't such a bad start".
