Three things in life are certain.
Death, taxes (ignore if you play for Barcelona) and Liverpool conceding from corners.
A new season should have brought a blank slate for Liverpool’s set-piece defending.
But it took Stefano Okaka just eight minutes to put Watford ahead when he powered home Jose Holebas’ corner.
It’s not like Okaka was an unlikely candidate.
If any player should have been afforded the tightest of marking it was the 6ft 1in hulk of a man that is Okaka.
But he made full use of Liverpool’s zonal marking to head home, via Simon Mignolet’s face, and give Liverpool fans that familiar sinking feeling.
How did Liverpool react?
Well Alberto Moreno, awarded a rare start by Jurgen Klopp, was just so excited that the football was back that he couldn’t help but smile.
We don’t blame you, Alberto. We’ve been grinning like Harry Redknapp on transfer deadline day all week.
Our thoughts go out to anyone who’s packed their defence full of Liverpool players in fantasy football.
