Premier League

Liverpool Bust Early Kick-off Myth as Firmino Scores Three to get Match Ball

Liverpool's visit to Watford was nothing short of a thrilling encounter. Five goals to nil were the results, happy one for The Reds as they now sit top of the table.

Watford have started poorly under new manager Claudio Ranieri during his first home game in charge.

Liverpool was the better team all along. They capitalised on their opponents' mistakes and ran the Watford defence rugged.

Sadio Mane was first on the scoresheet after converting a curved outside-footed pass from Mohammed Salah to reach the 100 Premiere League goals mark. Provider turned scorer made it 4 in the second half.

Firmino would then net thrice-the last one coming at stoppage time to seal a hat-trick and went home with the match ball.

Early kick-off fixtures have always proven to be tough but Liverpool, sure enough, cracked the code. Some big six teams have always struggled to get a good result during early kickoff but not Liverpool-at least not today.
