Liverpool beat Watford 1-0 in EPL with Can highlight goal


"He does like to try speculative efforts, and we will not have a pop now after he produced that", said the England midfielder. "We have pressure until the end of the season but at least it's a positive pressure".

"Nobody can take these points away from us, that's the best news", Klopp stated. "If people think we have the three points against Southampton (next weekend) they cannot have seen Southampton this season". "In the first half aside from another great shot from Lallana we didn't concede anything to them". They're another really strong side.

Yet though Lallana came close to scoring on the break, and substitute Daniel Sturridge forced a wonderful late save from Gomes in the dying seconds, Liverpool's failure to close out the game nearly cost them. They tried everything over 97 minutes but one mistake could have led to the goal.

Jurgen Klopp's men claimed an important 1-0 win at Watford on Monday to consolidate third spot in the table.

He said: "Aside from the crossbar from Prodl, there were two mistakes from the referee, offsides against (Stefano) Okaka and (Troy) Deeney, so I think we played a good game".

Philippe Coutinho had to leave with an injury in the 10th minute.

Liverpool would hang on for all three points, in spite of a late scare when Sebastian Prodl nearly stole a tie with a long rocket.

It also showed that 19 of the country's mega rich have seen their wealth grow in the past year by a billion pounds or more. Andy Bell, who launched the AJ Bell platform in 1995, is worth £165m, earning him 678 place on the Rich List .

But regardless of Watford's near equaliser, Can was the talking point after the game, and Klopp was quick to praise the match victor and Lucas for his excellent floated ball into the box. That's how football at this level is. We will see what we deserve.

"We're hungry to play in the Champions League". We are confident we can achieve that.

"Of course, we knew before the game what happened [on Sunday], with the other results, and it was a big, big step for us". "Even he can play better than he did tonight, but I'm not sure he can score nicer goals!"

Mazzarri declined to comment on the severity of Britos' injury, but was pleased with the way Watford defended overall either side of the Uruguayan's withdrawal for Christian Kabasele before the interval.

"If you look at all Liverpool's games, they usually create five or six clear chances", said the Italian. Klopp added. "It's deserved, you need a lot of luck in these moments, we had a wonderful volley from Lallana, then Prodl hit the bar".

"We defended well I think".
