Watford, it was suggested, was exactly the kind of fixture Liverpool did not need after an anaemic display against Manchester United but, really, they were the perfect opponents and have now conceded 16 times in their last three visits to Anfield.

Van Dijk "enjoying" title race after Watford rout

Van Dijk Virgil van Dijk says he is enjoying every minute of the Premier League title race this season, saying he and his Liverpool teammates are only focusing on themselves. The towering Dutchman enjoyed another great night at the office on Wednesday, as Jurgen Klopp’s side thrashed Watford 5-0 at Anfield. Not only did he ensure the Reds kept yet another clean-sheet, he also registered two goals late in the day, taking his tally to the season to three. There is constant talk surrounding pressure in the title race, with Manchester City continuing to breath down Liverpool’s necks.

From start to finish, they dominated and five unanswered goals was the least they deserved. It didn’t matter what was going on 40 miles away in Manchester, this was Klopp and his team making a statement. Be under no illusion how much they want to become champions.

Klopp has been flummoxed about the level of knit picking of Liverpool’s form and, buried in his programme notes, there was a paragraph that chimed as a declaration of intent for the final 11 games. His team, he is adamant will be in this race until the end.

‘Nobody takes a point from Liverpool now unless they are prepared to prise it from our clenched fist – and I haven’t seen many teams that can beat us when it comes to will and desire,’ Klopp wrote. ‘We are a team built on positivity and attacking intent. It flows through our veins.’

Four Findings: Liverpool 5-0 Watford

Four Findings: Liverpool 5-0 Watford After the disappointing draw at Old Trafford, Liverpool needed to find the right response to dispel any notions they are undeserving of remaining top of the table. Playing host to Watford, the Reds roared past Watford 5-0 at Anfield. Since last season’s opening day surrender for a 3-3 draw, the Reds have battered Watford 13-0 over the course of three matches. If there is a better club to help Liverpool kick on and find their form, they will be hard to find. The Merseysiders make the most of this particular mid-table club.

Virgil van Dijk . And quite right too. They are going to announce the Men’ s Player of the Year soon, one of these years. It’ s between Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Virgil van Dijk .

Those words must have formed part of his pre-match address as Liverpool, to borrow Linford Christie’s famous quote, flew out the blocks on the b of the bang. They are at their best when making fast starts and Watford’s players struggled to see which way red shirts were moving.

It all started in the third minute when James Milner, playing in an advanced midfield role, scurried after a ball and charged down Ben Foster’s attempt to clear. Not only did it unsettle Watford, the home supporters greeted it with noisy approval.

Soon they had a goal to acclaim. Watford were hemmed back on the edge of their own box and, really, it should have Liverpool who were wearing yellow, such was their determination to buzz around like angry wasps.

Milner was instrumental, winning possession and ushering it on to Trent Alexander-Arnold. The young right back, whose absence at Old Trafford was such a surprise, whipped in the perfect delivery and Mane did the rest, guiding his header beyond Foster.

Klopp’s response was to look to the floor, rather than show even a flicker of emotion, but inside he must have been dancing a jig. He would have known the potential for this contest to be tricky, so the implication of an early advantage was huge.

Watford lost by five here last season and, such was Liverpool’s determination to go for the jugular, they must have feared a similar score as everywhere they looked there were threats, from the dancing feet of Mohamed Salah, Alexander-Arnold’s youthful exuberance and Mane’s panache.

Salah, undoubtedly, has been a shadow of himself in recent weeks but you could tell he was in the mood here as he soon as he started setting off on those runs where the ball appears glued to his foot and he seems to be guided by a joystick.

One surge in the 22nd minute created the second, as he twisted past Adam Masina. The left back was able to get a foot in but the ball was not cleared; again Alexander-Arnold provided the centre and Mane did the rest, chipping the grounded Foster with a back heel. Yes, you read that right.

There could have been more. Salah, chasing another little piece of history, was determined to score his 50th goal but the woodwork thwarted him in the 37th minute after he had jinked past the increasingly frazzled Masina. The excellent Fabinho, meanwhile, went close from 25 yards.

Watford were limited to counter attacks but each time they tried to cause mischief, Virgil van Dijk was in the way and Gerard Deulofeu quickly realised that openings would not come with the generosity Cardiff showed him last Friday.

Andy Robertson suspended for quarter-final first leg

Andy Robertson suspended for quarter-final first leg Liverpool left-back Andy Robertson will miss the first leg of the Champions League quarter-finals after a late booking against Bayern Munich tonight. Two minutes into stoppage time, Robertson carelessly caught Leon Goretska as the German dribbled past him and the referee didn’t hesitate to pull his yellow card out. It comes as a big blow for Jurgen Klopp, but it’s unlikely he’ll dwell on it for too long after watching his side triumph 3-1 at the Allianz Arena, becoming the first English side to win at the stadium.

With such a buffer – and in such a mood – there was never any possibility of Watford causing a surprise. The only question was whether Liverpool were going to really cut loose and improve their goal difference: their answer was positive.

Divock Origi, who was given the task of replacing Roberto Firmino, supplied the third, cutting in from the left and fizzing a drive past Foster into the bottom corner. Klopp celebrated this one – not with the gusto of the Belgian’s winner against Everton in December – but his delight was evident.

By the end, he was positively beaming. Van Dijk added two headers from close range – one from an Alexander-Arnold cross, the other from Andrew Robertson’s centre – to leave the stadium bouncing. They’re in an outstanding position with 10 games to go. In fact, they are 10 games from greatness.

Why Virgil Van Dijk is the favourite for the PFA Player of the Year award.
When you look back to Liverpool’s last title challenge in the 2013/14 season, defensive errors were a regular feature throughout the campaign. Liverpool conceded 50 goals that season – only three less than 16th placed Hull City. Liverpool often found themselves involved in high scoring affairs such as 6-3, 5-3 and the famous 3-3 draw away at Crystal Palace. A team that is challenging for the league should not be conceding these sorts of numbers. Alex Ferguson and Jose Mourinho won a countless number of titles by winning games 1-0 on a regular basis. Virgil Van Dijk is still in his first full season at the club but what a season it has been.
