WATFORD OPINION: Hornets must make the most of home comforts after Liverpool hammering

BBC SportMohamed Salah scored four goals as Liverpool moved up to third in the Premier League table by thrashing Watford at Anfield.

skySalah struck twice in the first half and then twice again late in the game to secure his first Liverpool hat-trick and take his tally to 36 for the season in all competitions.

guardianWatford will have returned home last night wondering how they were on the end of such a sobering scoreline. They were by no means a shambles. Yet, in sport, ability generally finds a way of shining through and Salah’s class is so clearcut, so emphatic and so enjoyable that he is comfortably the Premier League’s most attractive sight at present.

TelegraphIt is hard to imagine, after this brutal dismantling, that the two sides had shared the spoils in a 3-3 draw at Vicarage Road back in August.

FranThere were some positives for the Hornets.  Karnezis, despite letting in five goals, put on a decent show.  But my highlight was a decent performance from Pereyra, who put together some lovely moves which cheered me up greatly on a day when there were few moments of joy.  He seems to shine against more talented opposition as he clearly feels that he is less likely to be clattered.

The Hornets NestWhilst in the ground I obviously took a few obligatory selfies.  As I was taking them a very kind steward asked if I would like him to take a proper photo of me. What a kind gesture I thought and so I took him up on the offer.  I always get very anxious about other people taking a photo for me. It has to be done right and I can get a little bit picky about what needs to be in it and angles and stuff.

This steward however had a different idea.  Instead of taking a few dodgy ones where I’d have to be very British and say “they’re great, thanks very much” he in fact held the camera button on my phone down and put it into ‘burst’ mode and thus took 100 photos.

Yes, you read that right. 100 awkward photos of me at Anfield.

BSAD imageBSAD report: Strange old business, football. I mean, as far as I’m concerned, life could be better this morning – I’m busier than a bee on speed, I’m tired enough that I could’ve quite happily stayed under the duvet for another three or four days, my shower’s leaking all over the bathroom floor again, there was no milk left for my breakfast cereal. And yet the Hornets won last night so it’s all a bit fine and dandy….
