Liverpool takes on underrated Watford on the road on Saturday in Premier League action for the league's 13th round of play.

Egypt head coach Javier Aguirre has said it "may be better" for Mohamed Salah to leave Liverpool sooner rather than later if they do not start winning trophies.

"This is a big boost for everyone and another demonstration of how the players we have at this club are committed, not just to our present but our future also", said Reds manager Klopp. It's not bad, but we will carry on.

There's a real feel good factor around Liverpool at the moment, but that will need to translate into silverware sooner rather than later.

"At 2-0 up, [going forward] it wasn't too smart, but we wanted to win and keep the clean sheet as well". I saw the game against Tottenham and they were good.

"It was a closer game than the scoreline but they are a very good team and they are able to do this".

Liverpool's performance and second-half flurry of goals against Watford was particularly pleasing for Klopp, given the lack of preparation time.

"Maybe I should not talk about it but to explain how hard things are, we had exactly one session to prepare this game", Klopp said.

Woods countered by telling Mickelson to double the bet. "In fact, I'm willing to risk $100,000 to say I birdie the first hole. However, the mediocre golf continued as Woods hit his approach to 80 feet and Mickelson came up short in a green-side bunker.

'They came back on Thursday, the Brazilians and Robbo (Andy Robertson) for example. One session with a specific demands of set-pieces.

"We tried to do our best but after scoring the first goal, with more spaces, they are very risky".

Watford had a goal ruled out in the second minute, Deulofeu running on to Troy Deeney's pass to beat Alisson with a smart finish, but he was offside.

"I'll try to be nice", the German said. So, 3-0, it couldn't have been better.

And Roberto Firmino added a third late on after the dismissal of Henderson for two yellow cards that Klopp could not dispute.

"Things like this happen when you play in a defensive midfield situation". He made a tactical foul.

"The only not so nice thing is that he can not play against Everton. That's already accepted, so nothing to say about that".

The other is Adam Lallana, who Klopp says is not available as he is suffering from a minor fitness issue.
