Watford held Coutinho-less Liverpool at bay on Saturday in a thrilling contest played at Vicarage Road Stadium which ended 3-3. Mohamed Salah scored on his much-anticipated debut but that wasn’t enough for the Reds to take away all three points.

The hosts started the game on a positive note, after Okaka broke the deadlock from a corner and made it 1-0 for his side but Liverpool winger Sadio Mane curled a beautiful ball into the net equalising the score.

Within three minutes, Abdoulaye Doucoure regained the lead over visitors after smashing a loose ball past Simon Mignolet.

Brazilian centre forward Roberto Firmino converted a penalty in the second half, equalising again for Jurgen Klopp’s men and after 2 minutes, debutant Mohamed Salah opened his score with a simple tap in, making it 3-2 for his side.

Watford sent waves of attack on Liverpool defence in order to salvage a point from the game and got themselves a, controversial, goal in the injury time from a corner kick.

Liverpool started without their talisman Philippe Coutinho, who is reportedly seeking pastures new and continue to be linked with a move away to Barcelona.
