The Fallout: Liverpool 2-0 Watford highlights and reaction as Mo Salah's double maintains the Reds' unbeaten run

Every angle of Liverpool 2-0 Watford covered in one place as BTSport.com provides the best of the match action, exclusive interviews with managers and players, pundit analysis, social media reaction and much more.

Mo Salah’s double inspired Premier League leaders Liverpool to victory over bottom side Watford as they extended their unbeaten league run to 34 games.

On a blustery day, Jurgen Klopp’s men were far from their scintillating best but Salah stepped up once again with his brace meaning he has now scored 42 goals in 52 games at Anfield.

It’s not the start new Watford boss Nigel Pearson will have wanted to his tenure but there were plenty of positive signs for the visitors who created several good chances.

Ultimately they failed to capitalise, as the Reds recorded their first home clean sheet of the season and were punished at the other end by the Egyptian's quality.

Man of the match

"I'll go for Mo Salah"

Steve McManaman

"I’ll go for Mo Salah because of that second goal, I was actually going to choose Alisson because he’s made big saves on big occasions for Liverpool.

"But now Salah has scored his second of the match, and with such audacity, I’m going to give it to him."
