With the two full-backs also sitting deep and maintaining positional discipline, Liverpool were limited to long, hopeful balls into a forward line not set up for that sort of service. His chip over the stranded Watford keeper but the ball looked set to bounce out until Salah put the icing on the cake of his debut by bundling the ball for his first competitive goal for the club. He wasn't the only wasteful one in a red shirt and Liverpool will not have issues creating chances this season, they just need to stop constructing problems for themselves at the back.

For the first goal, Okaka exploited the space in their zonal marking system, eluding Roberto Firmino at the near post to power his header past Simon Mignolet.

"It's the set-up from the manager", Carragher told Sky Sports. He went on to say that Liverpool is notorious for not allowing their players to leave and hence his friend had no other option. "Why Firmino is the central man I'll never know". "Another big game for us coming up, thanks for the brilliant support once again". I was not happy in the first half with the situation; it was very physical and Watford were too often the winners in these situations.

In what has been a busy summer since the 2016-17 season ended, Arsenal have signed Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette in a club-record deal and Bosnian defender Sead Kolasinac on a free transfer ahead of the new season. "What are they looking at?"

And in a further blow for Klopp, Southampton are adamant they will not do business with the Reds over Virgil van Dijk.

"I can say something that is maybe more important", Klopp said at a Press conference.

Parity only lasted for two minutes before Watford surged back into the lead. Yet Liverpool were hit by another sucker punch just three minutes later, as they failed to clear a low cross by Tom Cleverley which left midfielder Abdoulaye Doucoure with a simple tap-in.

He remarked: "In football life, it makes sense to be really self-critical and that's what we are of course, but in the end if you do everything on the first matchday, you can not expect perfection".

"On average Liverpool conceded around 50 goals a season", Carragher added.
