Liverpool boss Klopp shrugs off Henderson red after Watford rout

Liverpool boss Klopp shrugs off Henderson red after Watford rout

It wasn't a brilliant first half, but it was still good.

Liverpool are now unbeaten in 13 league games and have 33 points coming in the second rank.

Jurgen Klopp's side struggled to find a way through the Hornets defence for 66 minutes on Saturday, the Reds perhaps having an eye on Wednesday's pivotal Champions League game away to Paris Saint-Germain. Outstanding. The goal difference is really good.

Mohamed Salah, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Roberto Firmino scored second-half goals to seal victory at Vicarage Road. For the moment it's really nice. A clean sheet, after being 2-0 up you not only want to win but you want to keep a clean sheet as well.

Their win was marred, though, when captain Jordan Henderson was dismissed with eight minutes to go, meaning will be banned for next weekend's Merseyside derby, although Firmino added a late third. "I am really happy about the way [we did it]".

"Coming back after an global break and playing a team who only had three or four players away I think, meaning they could train properly - we could only train Wednesday and Thursday - and to play against such an organised team is hard".

At half-time we said we had to stay solid and do it again but better, with more rhythm change. I am not sure if we had the ball in the past when we've played here, they were much more open games - especially the 3-3 we played here, ' he said. "I know people miss one or two situations from last season but we have these games".

"I don't know how many challenges Hendo had today or situations where he had to be closing up either the player or the space".

But Salah hit a first-time finish through the legs of goalkeeper Ben Foster, scoring his fourth goal in five Premier League games, before Alexander-Arnold's wonderful free-kick put the visitors in control.

"Things like this happen when you play in a defensive midfield situation".

Dejan Lovren and Virgil van Dijk put on a peerless display at Vicarage Road as the centre-back pairing won virtually everything that came their way.
