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

03 May, 2017, 01:45 | Author: Essie Rivera

The Reds now go into the final three games of the campaign three points ahead of their nearest challengers, Manchester City, and four points above United, albeit with both Lancashire sides having a game in hand.

An outrageous scissor kick goal from Emre Can has given Liverpool a 1-0 win over Watford this morning (NZT), strengthening the Merseyside club's Champions League qualification hopes. Still, there were no penalties handed to us on a silver platter, so even our rare day of good luck didn't reward us with another goal to our name. "We have pressure, yes, but pressure in the end of the season means you're fighting for something".

"We don't expect for a second that it will be easy".

The Spaniard may have not left a strong impression as yet since joining Real Madrid from Malaga in 2013, but he is a supremely gifted and top class footballer.

Klopp, however, said he needed to see his goal again to fully appreciate the moment.

"He's a good player". We had a lot of talks about this. He said, 'I'm going to try'.

"But these problems are now sorted and he can build on performances".

A game that had been meandering along amid much mediocrity came to life on the stroke of halftime when Can's extraordinary overhead scissors kick from Lucas's chipped through ball rocketed into the top corner.

Liverpool lost Philippe Coutinho to an early knock, but the incident also meant the return of Lallana after five games out, while Daniel Sturridge also made a late cameo as he recovers his full fitness.

Coutinho came off second-best in an early collision with recalled Watford defender Adrian Mariappa.

Watford rarely threatened, but nearly snatched a point when Sebastian Prodl smashed against the bar in injury time.

"We want to work hard and do everything for the points we can get".

'It's deserved. We need in football this type of luck.

"Apart from Prodl's shot against the crossbar, there were two incorrect offsides against (Stefano) Okaka and (Troy) Deeney".

Liverpool and Manchester United fans continued their ongoing social media discussion over who is the better midfielder Paul Pogba or Emre Can following the goal.

This post was syndicated from The Guardian Nigeria. "You've got to be prepared mentally for anything".

"I tried to push forward on the left and played on the other side as well today".
