Watford 0 Liverpool 3: Reds stay on Manchester City's tail

The 26-year-old Senegal global, who signed from Southampton in 2016, agreed terms on a new contract which is thought to run until 2023 on Thursday. In this fantastic, big club with the outstanding teams of the past, that this group of players can get this record is nice.

"Tough game, always tough when we come here, but we kept the goals out and I knew if we kept going we'd get a chance at goal", the defender said on LFC TV.

With 52 goals and 20 assists in 69 games, his goal-scoring prowess has naturally attracted the interest of FC Barcelona and Real Madrid and Aguirre believe the Pharoes attacking talisman could be tempted to leave the club.

Liverpool resume Premier League action after the global break with a trip to Watford on Saturday afternoon. But the season is not finished and it doesn't bring us anything. One session, with the specific demands of Watford's set-pieces; you saw what they did with routines and how they play around, where they chip the balls and where they block the guys.

Liverpool have not have recaptured the spectacular form of last season but they collected a precious win here thanks to three excellent goals. It was not that clear that we controlled the games, but we controlled [this game].

"If a player is in a good moment and you can extend his contract it is more than a signing, it's a statement".

"I can't think of a single club anywhere in Europe that wouldn't want a player like Sadio available to them, so the fact he wants to remain with us says something about where we are now".

Klopp was similarly disdainful when questioned regarding reports Fabinho could seek a move over a lack of game-time, the midfielder having started only three Premier League games since signing from Monaco.

"I really think this group of players, they deserve it". It was 3-0 and I don't think any Liverpool supporter wants another result or another performance.

Liverpool are second in the Premier League standings with 30 points from 12 games, two points behind Manchester City as they chase their first league title since 1990.
