Watford vs. Liverpool
Minute Commentary
90' MORE ON THAT GOAL
Holebas' corner causes all sorts of problems again, MIGUEL BRITOS nudging the ball over the line after some more lamentable defending from Liverpool. Absolutely shocking.
90' GOOOAAALLL
Britos surely earns a point in the dying seconds!
89' YELLOW CARD
Mignolet is booked for time wasting as the clock ticks down. Just added time to play now.
85' SEEING IT OUT
Liverpool are in a strong position now, and are sitting back to shore things up at the back. Five minutes remain.
79' BREAK
Liverpool break, Salah outpacing Holebas to burst into the area. It's a tight angle, though, and fires straight into the side netting.
76' POOR COMMUNICATION
Crossed wires between Mignolet and his back four almost cost them again, but fortunately for him, the hosts fail to capitalise.
72' GOOD SAVE
Another wonderful corner from Alexander-Arnold is met by Lovren, but Gomes beats the powerful header away.
69' GOOD DEFENDING
Watford break through Cleverly but some tenacious defending from Matip eventually quells the danger.
66' BAR
Alexander-Arnold fizzes a corner in, with both Lovren and Matip challenging. The latter gets the final touch but the header crashes against the crossbar.
64' LIVELY
Liverpool look like they have some life in them for the first time this afternoon. It certainly seems like there's more goals in this contest.
58' MORE ON THAT GOAL
It's another defensive calamity, this time from Watford. A long ball - which may have been an attempted shot - from Firmino goes untracked by Britos, and MOHAMED SALAH is able to tuck the ball into the net from close range.
58' GOOOAAALLL
Salah puts Liverpool ahead!
56' MORE ON THAT GOAL
Firmino slides the ball through to Salah, who beats Gomes to the ball, drawing the foul from the keeper. FIRMINO sends Gomes the wrong way from the spot to level the standings
56' GOOOAAALLL
Liverpool level the score again!
52' OFFSIDE
Debutant Richarlison almost gets his first sniff of goal as Okaka threads the ball through to him, but he slightly mistimed his run and the flag comes to Liverpool's rescue.
49' INJURY
Watford are forced into another change as Pereyra is unable to continue. Richarlison comes on in his place.
46' KICK-OFF
Liverpool gets the second half started. Both sides are unchanged at the break.
45' HALF TIME
The first half comes to a close. It's Watford 2, Liverpool 1.
43' ALL WATFORD
Liverpool desperately need the half-time whistle as they frantically try to fend the opposition off. Watford win a corner but the delivery is overcooked this time.
38' AMBITIOUS
Chalobah spots Mignolet off his line and has a go from the centre circle. It was a good idea but the execution left a lot to be desired.
34' MORE ON THAT GOAL
It's another defensive catastrophe for Liverpool; they chaotically try to clear Cleverley's cross unsuccessfuly, and ABDOULAYE DOUCOURE turns it in from close range.
32' GOOOAAALLL
Watford cancel out the equaliser quickly!
30' MORE ON THAT GOAL
Liverpool's first real attack leads to an equaliser! Can flicks the ball into SADIO MANE's path and he curls it past Gomes to make it 1-1.
29' GOOOAAALLL
Mane scores the equaliser!
25' STRUGGLING
Liverpool are really struggling to put an attack together. Watford are hustling them at every opportunity and so far Klopp's side have no answer.
22' TOO STRONG
The trend continues as Okaka remains untouchable. Lovren is having a nightmare trying to deal with him.
17' INJURY
Jamaat looks like he's pulled his hamstring, as he immediately signals to the bench. Femenia will be his replacement.
14' GREAT PRESENCE
Okaka is proving a real nuisance. He shrugs off a number of challenges with sheer strenghth, and the Liverpool rearguard are left questioning each other, with a lack of power and communication evident at the back.
10' MORE ON THAT GOAL
Liverpool's defensive vulnerabilities are exposed early on, as STEFANO OKAKA strolls towards the near post to head the ball in, unmarked, from Pereyra's cross.
10' GOOOAAALLL
Okaka puts Watford ahead!
9' GREAT CHANCE!
Pereyra inherits the ball inside the box, albeit at full-strech. He gets a shot away and it's deflected behind for a corner.
7' JANMAAT WINS THE BALL
Janmaat outmuscles Mane on the flank, winning the ball in a dangerous position. He whips the ball in but it is safely cleared at the near post.
6' FIRST ATTACK
Liverpool are the first to venture forward, but Alexander-Arnold's through-ball is a tad overcooked, and Gomes gets there ahead of Firmino.
3' STEADY START
Neither side is overstretching in the opening stages; both are keen to settle any nerves with some safe passing around the back.
1' KICK-OFF
We're underway! Watford get things started at Vicarage Road.
