A marvelous Emre Can goal gave the Reds the lead at Watford just before halftime, Liverpool went on to protect that precious 1-0, but seconds before the final whistle Sebastian Prodl hit the crossbar in what was the hosts’ biggest chance to level the score.
I said to the boys after the game, ‘If you want to kill me, that’s a good way to try.’ It’s crazy, it’s crazy, 500 million grey hairs
Jurgen Klopp told reporters in the Press conference after the game, sharing what he felt seeing the ball hit the crossbar, in what could have led to Liverpool dropping two points of pure gold.
We didn’t play perfect, but it would’ve been really hard to accept [not to win]. But we got the points and I think the boys really deserved it
the Liverpool manager added, obviously relieved that the score didn’t change in the last seconds.
The Reds remain third in the table, three points higher than Manchester City and four from fifth-placed Manchester United, who both dropped points last weekend. Liverpool have played one game more than the Manchester sides, and two from sixth-placed Arsenal, who have nine points less than Klopp’s team.
