Firmino hat trick and he wasn’t even the best player on the park


AbsolutShite

It was a lot like that Kuyt hattrick from a combined 6 yards.


LatestArrival

That was against United and is therefore the best worst hattrick of all time


automaticacid111

Suarez assist for the first one was one of the best thing I’ve ever seen.


idontknow_whatever

To this day I still have no fucking idea how Suarez managed to wriggle out of that to put it on a plate for Kuyt


DrAgOnLoLDoTA

and how Van der Saar ran to the linesman to call for an offside


kirkbywool

Trying to claim kuyt ws offside I guess


DrAgOnLoLDoTA

Yeah, but look so stupid because no way that was offside


One_Sauce

Suarez's assist was so good he ran off the celebrate.


LazyassMadman

Always looks like he's running to celebrate the goal lmao


rztzzz

So happy for him. It was a solid hat-trick for a Number 9, just running at the goal and pouncing on opportunities.


surbell

Sissoko had a great match tbf


Nickoboosh

Only him, sarr and foster look anywhere near premier league quality.


ben-hur-hur

Ngakia looked solid too


Alexanderspants

that young RB they brought on looked good too


SnottyTash

Ngakia


HunterWindmill

What a fantastic name. nGAKIA


Alpha_Jazz

Foster do not make me laugh. Nice bloke but fuck me he is so past his best


Nickoboosh

Some really good saves today. Not saying hes as good as he was, but I dont think he looks as out of place as some of the others.


iamwinna

He turned into neuer anytime Salah had a shot but otherwise was quite poor


GoldenFootball286

Mate if he doesn't save them he's had a mare. Can't kick a ball straight and at times can't throw it straight either


wilsont18

His distribution was terrible today


AnfieldBoy

Yea.. that was the problem..


Alpha_Jazz

It was one of the many problems but still a problem


Satz0r

Foster didn't have a great game. Might have done better for 2 goals. Distribution was very poor.


luke_205

Ngakia was probably your MOTM in all honesty and he only came in at HT…

Jim Beglin commentary during the game “Will Ranieri get sacked before the 90th minute?”


rayoflight92

They zoomed in on Canavaro in the stands and wondered whether he's the next manager lmao.


Alpha_Jazz

I’d rather have him at centre back


yomommafool

That’s a good choice


habdragon08

He also went on about rose being fat


Tejash2006

"no shame being Salah'd" Some excellent piece of commentary all over today


Jaydenn7

You don’t win friends being Salah’d!


joysoftoproping

yeah that was a bit of a dog move but still pretty funny


tarakian-grunt

Ranieri sounding out the Newcastle job already.


ellipsisoverload

Danny Rose won't be showing that game to the family at Christmas... Jim Beglin put the boot in on commentary too, calling him fat and his efforts pathetic...


Rankei2

Bit rough on him being against the best player in the league though. Salah has had his way with every left back this season Edit - Neco Williams was fresh calm down boys


arc1261

He got rinsed by neco Williams - either that or he just didn’t give enough of a shit to try and stop him and I’m not sure what’s worse


TakeItCheesy

When he played for us on loan it was clear he didn't give a shit and wasn't good enough too


Komischaffe

he got skinned by Williams for the 5th


Chiswell123

Rose probably would have preferred to have been water boarded than stay on for that whole match


viberblue

A cone would have done more in his position


jesuspunk

[Are you sure?](https://i.imgur.com/GBvEEc3.jpg)


velvetthunder7

rinsed either way, at least his pain could have been private instead of being called fat on tv.


J539

both things are probably nightmare inducing


joeseph145

Fun fact: James Milner is actually 4 years older than Danny Rose


danirijeka

Man's preserved in 100% pure Ribena


johnydarko

Is that all?? I honestly would have thought he would have been like 8-10 years older!


Hertohen

Danny Rose? Performance like this? Believe it or not, straight to jail.


Akmuq

He's lucky he's not at Newcastle.


mklasnic8

man looked laaaarge, a bit overweight perhaps


Mountainbanjo

Rinsed by Salah? straight to jail.


ZeroMomentum

Bobby hat trick? Also jail


Oxfordsandtea

Overweight? Believe it or not, jail.


42err

Underweight? Also jail.


Crammock

Outpaced by James Milner? 🤨


JimmyWu21

Don't let his age fool you. the man is fit!


ficklefools

Shows what happens when you care about your job and put the effort in, vs when you don't.


ARM_vs_CORE

Just watched this Parks and Rec episode last night lol. Funny to see a 10+ year old reference in the wild so quickly after.


ShiftBreaker

A clean sheet, nice. Does that mean Ranieri has to buy all the Liverpool players dinner?


_cumblast_

"Salah. What a player, mate." - Me, every time he touches the ball.


caelum400

Also coincidentally what Ben Foster will say in his next video.


crs9

Danny Rose deserves whatever the opposite of a man of the match award is

maxiaoling

Manure of the match


MAXMADMAN

Missed the match. How was Danny Rose?


lobbmaster

He also missed the match..


Mundaneinanities

Awful. Worst player on the pitch and the three nearest pub league pitches.


Rankei2

Massina worse for me. Second goal he was on the half way line for that milner overlap. He didn't nothing somehow not scrutinised enough


SaBe_18

Is he your friend? In that case, he played excellent! Just don't talk with him about this match anymore


MAXMADMAN

He has been a bit quiet.


Koppite93

Cycling GK and chill This week


alicization

Man, he's a great guy too from his vlogs.


mrhello18

“Brutal game out there but that’s the Premier League for you. Salah what a player though got those FPL captain points!” ​ \-Ben Foster, probably


[deleted]

Feel like he captained Firmino this week


automaticacid111

I know it’s a joke but he actually said they don’t put opposition players in.


HunterWindmill

Wouldn't it be really hard to avoid what with limited transfers?


GhandisFlipFlop

He lies


purpleshoewhoru

what a legend though seriously.


hbb893

Mane, Firmino and Salah all currently in the top 5 of the top scorers table. Hopefully a bit of actual rest for the three of them, over the summer and into the season, will see them have another dominant year. It would be a great testament to Klopp's belief in his players and the notion you don't always need to replace a player because they have a bad year or patch of form.


ZeroMomentum

The rhythm is back


Lyrical_Forklift

Look at Benzema now too- scored five in the league a few years back and plenty wanted him gone and now he, along with Mo, are two of the most inform players in the world.


dave1992

Firmino and Mane only performed in front of crowd. They looked weak without those energy from them.


Jacob_YNWA

Danny Rose looked like an overweight Seal getting torn apart by Orca's.


EyeSpyGuy

Maybe mourinho had a point


arbuthnot-lane

Seal has always been quite fit, though. Heidi Klum doesn't go for a slob.


TheMayoTao

Firmino hattrick yet Salah is the MOTM. Mo is just operating at a different level these days. He's got it all - strength, pace, dribbling ability, and finishing are all elite


wallie71

This season his passing has been elite as well!


Bonables

That assist for the first goal was some KDB type shit


awwkwardapple

I swear... dare I say.... ballon d'or???


MH18Foot

Salah hate Watford confirmed


Neown

Yeah Watford are going down


MoonlitNightveil

It was like they could really not be arsed, it was not just that they were outclassed, they were just embarrassing.


VeryBadflower

Jenas on the BT commentary sounded legitimately angry with how little they were trying


MoonlitNightveil

He, at one point said: “they look like they’re on the pitch just to get autographs”. Brutal.


SilentBobVG

I was fully expecting him to just go “Rose is absolute wank mate, proper dogshit player” at some points. He was really getting tore in


WillDaThrilll13

Rose would still get rinsed in the championship


Alpha_Jazz

I’ve said this so many times now but he’s played well for us until today. He was left at centre back with no support from Masina in front against arguably the best player in the world at the moment


Yolo_The_Dog

Fair enough against Salah but no excuse against Neco


Defiant_Story9158

Well he had just spent 90 minutes getting rinsed by Salah and then Neco come on with fresh legs.


mrhello18

Someone please check Salah's boots for a magnet


Aztecius

Worlds apart from each other.


mrhello18

sissoko was the only player who did anything of note for watford


happygot

Ngakia looked decent after coming on


usXer

That was some 'welcome back' dicking for Claudio tho


dolphintitties

just wish the prem let ben foster have the gopro in goal. would have loved to hear everyone's reactions.


Stoneygoose

I know the role of the winger has evolved to an inside forward but Salah has to be the best winger to ever do it in the prem. What's insane to me is he has the same assist to goal ratio as Giggs and a higher a/g than hazard in the premier league, yet haters love to say he's a striker and they were playmakers.


Arkinite3110

I hate when people call him a forward just because he has such a high goal contribution. I constantly look at heat maps of his games, and notice just how often he plays on the wing.


happygot

Him and Sadio also contribute a hell of a lot of defensive work


Arno451

The guy is tracking back and helping the RB out with defending all the time as well, what kind of ‘forward’ does that? Just one look at his heat map should firmly end that debate


Parish87

Danny Rose frantically booking a flight to Milan as we speak.


brokenbadlab

We smelled blood and went at him all day, and it worked all day.


hawkorhawks

Is there such thing as an easy hatrick? I guess Bobby knows where to be to score goals


happygot

Pulled a Dirk Kuyt


RGCFrostbite

Rose legitimately looks about what I imagine I’d look like out there


Ronfish27

Salah channels his inner Messi and Firmino channels his inner Ronaldo.


Cien-Major

Mo Salah is the best player in the world.


KiAdiBumMe

I don't do ifs buts and maybes I do absolutes


WillDaThrilll13

Why's you laughin? I'm bein seeeeerious


ezodochi

like, if your aunt had balls she'd be your uncle but she doesn't so she's not


Gelassenheit307

I don't know who that guy is but that video always seems to me like he's reeling off sayings that don't actually have relevance to the conversation.


KiAdiBumMe

In that one video maybe, but he's actually become a pretty well known commentator in the LFC online community and has some pretty decent takes. He's done collabs with Anfield Agenda.


bubble831

And Danny Rose is the worst, lethal combination


ThatkidJerome

Salah is literally the best player in the world at the moment


Akame_xo

I hope rose has a good therapist


Miyeon__miyeon

Danny Rose woke up feeling lazy


ynwa_chicago

Danny Rose with a performance for the ages.


rayoflight92

Rose might as well taken a seat in the away stand and had a pint. He's truly finished.


siva-pc

Salah to Watford is what Suarez was to Norwich. Every season wonder


srhola2103

Watford ffs, first you hire Nigel Pearson, **then** you hire Ranieri.


[deleted]

Danny Rose with possibly the worst performance I've ever seen in the premier league Also is there a reason he's like 2 stone overweight?


MenBeGamingBadly

It wss up there with "that" Renato Sanches performance for sure


[deleted]

The one where he passed the ball to an advertising hoarding?


MenBeGamingBadly

Indeed!


DT_McShaky_Hands

“The Reds have got no money but we’ll still win the league!” Mo money, mo problems but we got MO SALAH THE BEST IN THE WORLD


Keex13

Fuck it give him mo money and we will late him play for the RedSox 3 times a year


mrhello18

Rose with one of the worst performances I’ve seen this season


ChicagoSunroofNo2

Probably the worst top flight performance since Ali Dia Or that one Ebouè game


dorgoth12

Any word from the Milanese pub team gaffer?


RioBeckenbauer

Just based on the attitude of the Watford players, Ranieri is not going to make it to Christmas.


Konval

My father in law passed away last night. Born and raised in Liverpool and a huge Liverpool fan. Served in the Vietnam War and lived in US since his early 20s. He would have been so happy with this game. Thank you for seeing him off properly.  Edit: thanks for the kind words. It was surreal watching the game so fresh from when he passed. We didn't want to watch TV but we all agreed that that's what he would want and he needs one final game to send him off to the other side.


Parish87

I lost my grandad 2 weeks ago, the morning of the city game. We text every match during the game about what was going on. The city game was the first match I’d watched without him and was in tears when salah scored because I wanted to text him like usual. Then he goes and does it again and I’m just waiting for my phone to buzz and it doesn’t. I know how you feel hopefully he’s watching it somewhere.


danirijeka

I didn't plan on welling up, but here we are. Reminds me a lot of my own grandpa. Sorry for your loss, both of yous


RedDunce

Sorry for your loss


DT_McShaky_Hands

Condolences dude. I’m sure he enjoyed this match from heaven


surbell

God is likely a legacy fan so probably no big 6 matches broadcasted in the heavens


Freestyled_It

God's got the streams lad, gets it from the cloud


MumenRyders

STRAP IN BOYS. Never expected to win that but the scoreline is disappointing. They looked on top form today but we should have made it harder for them. We have a huge 3/4 games coming up and I'll be impressed if we pick up any points from them. Unsurprisingly when you shift out the core of your team, we just aren't playing like a cohesive unit.


BlackHoleKane

So who had Ranieri as their second pick to get sacked this season?


PEEWUN

The first sacking is **always** the Watford manager. And then it's the replacement Watford manager.


honestlynotBG

New manager, same old story for Watford


[deleted]

[удалено]


Attila_22

Even we only let in 3.


arc1261

Yeah it’s not much but Norwich we’re about 1000x better than Watford today they looked like a league one team


MumenRyders

We have a habit of letting in lots of goals against the big 6 quite often. Usually, it's City but clearly, we're being more generous this season.


Mr_Miltank

Well atleast it was only 5, if Xisco was still in charge you could probably tripled the scoreline. We played worse against Leeds so anyone that has only seen us today thinking we where shit just know we can actually play worse


Rankei2

From a neutral : Salah good Offside rule bad Kucko bad Sissoko good Neco Williams good Kelleher goat


Powerjugs

Today was always going to be grim. Ranieri did not meet most of the squad as they would have been away on international duty to try and drill in a shape and style. I expect next week we'll see a different and more defined shape and thereafter we should / must see a relatively defined XI and style with some form of interlinking play. Today was always going to be a thumping. If today helps inform him early about what he can and can't get away with in where people play then it's not world ending.


OneOfTheManySams

Watford literally sacked their manager for overachieving with this squad


MumenRyders

This one made me chuckle. Worth noting though half this squad is new since we got promoted. He got sacked for overachieving with a worse squad and failing with a better one.


CowNchicken12

Who upvotes this


SickVibes

Watford look like free points at the moment.


MasterThornOfCamor

Si Señor


Spectario

If Mane - Firminho - Salah can retain this form and partnership like they used to, they will be favorites for both EPL and UCL.


vikogotin

Steady.


Viking_Hippie

He's not wrong, but judging by his flair, I'd suspect he's trying to jinx both, the bastard! 😛


mrhello18

so all it took for watford to get a move on was conceding 4 goals


sunny224868

Ben’s next vid should be interesting


joebro2929

If I’m a watford fan, I would hope to never see Danny rose put on the shirt again


barely1egal

If Ranieri's aim was to allow Salah and Firmino the freedom of VR. He succeeded.


deRamo7

Danny Rose is a fat traffic cone


Bens_Glenn

Delighted for Bobby. Alright it wasn’t the sexiest hattrick, but he’s got a lot of shit from the fans recently. People are too quick to forget what he’s done for this club and what he’s still capable of.


Amon_kun

Cannavaro to Watford, HERE WE GO!


Trust_Me_Im_A_Doctor

...as a defender.


Bjdendi

Mo Salah for Ballon D'or. I hope PL managers and pundits sing it with us.


DidiDombaxe

Danny rose still gives me hope I could still make it even at mid 30s


Bo5ke

Well no pizza for Watford players.


MustBeHax

Benzema and Salah are in the form of their lives


Mick4Audi

Did Pochettino make some sort of deal to halve his player’s career spans? Rose is finished at 31 lmao


dynachist

Rose still waiting for that Milan call to see if they're interested 🤞
