It’s no longer news to football fans that Watford stunned Liverpool to end Jurgen Klopp’s side hope of winning the Premier League title unbeaten this season.
Watford invariably thrashed Liverpool 3-0 to put an end to the Reds’ 44 matches Premier League unbeaten run. It was the first time Liverpool would lose a league game since their loss against Manchester City in January 2019 and this time around, it was done by a team that sat in relegation zone.
Man-of-the-match Ismaila Sarr stole the show with two goals to his name and an assist for the third goal as scored by Troy Deeney all in the second-half.
The win moved Watford up the table, out of the relegation zone to 17th with 27 points while Liverpool remain first still with 79 points, 22 points ahead of second Manchester City who now have a game in hand due to their Carabao Cup final against Aston Villa later today.
Chelsea almost lost it at Bournemouth but defender Marcos Alonso came to the rescue with a brace in the match to help Frank Lampard’s side secure a 2-2 draw away at Bournemouth.
It was Marcos Alonso that scored first in the first-half but Bournemouth scored two goals in quick succession in three second-half minutes through Jefferson Lerma and Joshua King respectively before Alonso rescued one point for the Blues late in the match.
Bournemouth stand 18th on the table with 27 points, level on points with 16th West Ham and 17th Watford following their respectively wins (West Ham beat Southampton 3-1 and Watford beat Liverpool 3-0).
