  • 54'

    GOAL, WATFORD, SARR! (1-0) Sarr steals a yard on Robertson and then seals a beaut! Can Watford secure this lead? Alisson was well beaten!

  • 50'

    The Liverpool machine appear to have been oiled during the break.

  • 47'

    SAVE! A great start by Watford as they secure the first corner. Kabasele finds Sarr, who just cannot get it past Alisson. That was so CLOSE!

  • 46'

    Kick-Off! We are back underway in the second half and Liverpool have some work to do.

  • 45'

    We will have five minutes of time added on. This is mainly due to the injury to Deulofeu.

  • 45'

    WHAT A CHANCE! Alisson fail to clear and he should have. Watford should really have scored from that error.

  • 45'

    HALF-TIME: WATFORD 0-0 LIVERPOOL. We have not had a shot at goal from either team. Can Watford hold out? It may be a long 45 minutes if they try.

    Liverpool secure a free-kick after Wijnaldum is fouled by Hughes. The set-piece is poor and Watford clear.

  • 41'

    SUBSTITUTION: Deulofeu is off and Roberto Pereyra is on to replace him. Just what Watford did not need!

  • 33'

    We have a stoppage in play. Van Dijk and Deulofeu collide and it appears as if the latter may have injured his knee.

  • 30'

    Watford seem more likely to score first than the league leaders at the moment.

  • 28'

    Watford have done well to close Liverpool down thus far. They obviously studied and analysed the West Ham game

  • 26'

    NO PENALTY! Masina is claiming a hand-ball against Lovren, but the referee is not interested.

  • 24'

    Liverpool are playing very high at the moment. Klopp does not look happy or worried at the moment.

  • 20'

    SIDE-NETTING! Salah hits the side after a patient Liverpool build-up. That looks better.

  • 19'

    Robertson receives a good long-ball, but is just beaten off it by Sarr. Great work!

  • 15'

    Liverpool are very nervous at the back at the moment. They concede a corner and then lead a counter-attack.

  • 13'

    There are some encouraging signs for Watford, as they continue to press The Reds.

  • 11'

    Watford break again and Alexander-Arnold is just a tad slow to prevent Deulofeu to have a shot at goal. It flies narrowly wide of Alisson.

  • 9'

    Liverpool secure the first corner of the game. It is cleared by Deeney and Watford try a counter-attack. It amounts to nothing.
