Liverpool's Best Goals vs Watford

With the international break over Liverpool are the first Premier League side back in action due to the early kick-off against Watford.

Watford have had some wonder goals scored against them by Liverpool, especially during the Jurgen Klopp era.

So let's take a look at the top five strikes against The Hornets from The Reds before the two sides lock horns again on Saturday.

5) Xabi Alonso- Liverpool 2-0 Watford 23rd December 2006

We start way before the Klopp era though with a strike from Xabi Alonso from 2006. It was in the dying embers of the game when Liverpool were already one nil up. 

Dirk Kuyt led a counter-attack for Rafa Benitez's side and put a ball into the box which was easily cut out. 

It came back to him though and he pulled the ball back to Xabi Alonso outside the box and the Spaniard hit a curling shot to win the three points for Liverpool. 

You will find the goal on the video above on 6:47. 

4) Trent Alexander-Arnold- Watford 0-3 Liverpool 24th November 2018

Now we start with the goals from Klopp's era and there is just so many to choose from. 

This Trent Alexander-Arnold free-kick though could not be ignored, His stance over the ball emphasises just how much he whips the strike and the fact Ben Foster does not move shows how ferocious it was.

3) Mohamed Salah- Liverpool 5-0 Watford 17th March 2018

Mo Salah scored four, yes four, in this game and also got the assist for the other goal. 

The goal that sealed the hat-trick though was the best as he had four Watford defenders doing the cha-cha slide trying to stop him as they were sliding all over the place with the snow gently falling down on the Anfield turf. 

It was a cold game which provided a picture book goal which would have warmed the crowd up. Roberto Firmino's glorious flick goal was not too bad either.

2) Sadio Mane- Liverpool 5-0 27th February 2019

Another five goal battering at Anfield for The Hornets. The pick of the goals this time round was Sadio Mane's second goal. 

A cross from Alexander-Arnold reached Mane but his first touch was poor. However with his back to goal he back-heeled it over the on-rushing Ben Foster. 

The awareness to know to lift the ball with the back-heel was sublime.

1) Emre Can- Watford 0-1 Liverpool 1st May 2017

This has to be number one, it is not even a debate. 

Liverpool travelled to Vicarage road in the run-in desperate for three points to keep the top-four hopes alive and just before half-time Emre Can delivered one of the most ludicrous goals you will ever see. 

Lucas Leiva delivered a ball into the box with Can making a late run and then what he did next was out of this world. 

One of the great Premier League goals and it was so vital as it was key to Liverpool getting Champions League football.
