Liverpool hung on to win at Watford by a single goal as an average display was brought to life by the goal of the season.

Watford 0-1 Liverpool

Premier League, Vicarage Road
May 1, 2017

Goals: Can 45’+2,

Simon Mignolet – 7.5

Had an early touch of the ball with a comfortable take from Niang.

Saved well from Etienne Capoue in the second half and assertively claimed a couple of crosses not long after.

Stopped an awkward shot from Daryl Janmaat in the last ten minutes and stayed strong under various barrages.

Could only watch Sebastian Prodl’s shot sail over him, but it clattered against the bar.

Nathaniel Clyne – 6.5

Stepped in well when needed, joining the midfield next to Lucas or going out wide on the overlap.

Always an option and it was another solid performance from the steady, ever-present right back.

Joel Matip – 7

Fouled on Niang in a dangerous area in the opening stages but took responsibility and defended the set piece himself.

Played an excellent ball to put Origi through in the second half.

Made a good burst forward himself in the latter stages, testing Heurelho Gomes at his near post.
