Match report: Emre Can stunner secures crucial Watford win


Emre Can’s sublime overhead kick helped Liverpool bolster their push for a top-four finish with a 1-0 win over Watford on Monday evening.

The midfielder grabbed the game’s only goal at Vicarage Road in first-half added time – and in style too, meeting Lucas Leiva’s ball forward with a spectacular effort that sailed into the top corner.

However, they were forced to survive a scare when Sebastian Prodl smashed a strike against the crossbar in the final seconds, but the result consolidates the Reds’ position in third in the Premier League table, moving them four points ahead of fifth-placed Manchester United having played a game more.

The key points…

  • Coutinho forced off due to injury after just 13 minutes.
  • Lallana struck crossbar with volley on return to action as a substitute.
  • Can wonder goal broke deadlock in first-half stoppage-time.
  • Prodl hits bar with close-range strike in 94th minute.

The team news…

Liverpool named an unchanged starting line-up for a third successive game, but the bench was bolstered by the returns of Adam Lallana, Daniel Sturridge and Ragnar Klavan.

The first half…

With Sunday’s results involving the other teams in top-four contention all going in Liverpool’s favour, they kicked off at Vicarage Road knowing how valuable acquiring three points could prove in the pursuit of Champions League qualification.
