Liverpool’s unbeaten run officially over after shock 3-0 defeat to Watford

Liverpool’s 44-game unbeaten run is officially over after they suffered a shock 3-0 defeat to Watford.

With the title all but wrapped up, Jurgen Klopp’s men went into the game with their sights set on bettering Arsenal’s record of 49-league games without defeat.

However, Nigel Pearson’s plucky Hornets had other ideas and spoiled the party in spectacular fashion at Vicarage Road.

After a goalless first half in which Liverpool rarely threatened Ben Foster in the Watford goal, the Hornets brought their sting in the second 45 minutes, with Ismaila Sarr scoring an impressive quickfire-double to shock the world of football.

Both of Sarr’s strikes would have done nothing for Dejan Lovren’s already damaged reputation among Reds’ fans, with the Croatian once again proving his error-prone nature.

Troy Deeney put the final nail in Liverpool’s unbeaten coffin with an ice-cold finish that ends the Reds’ hopes of re-writing the history books.

The defeat means Man City could close the gap on Liverpool to 19 points should they win their game in hand.

Liverpool couldn’t throw it from here, could they?
