Such was Liverpool’s utter dominance against poor Watford yesterday, we had more shots on target (17) than any Premier League side since records began.
With that in mind, our visitors did well to restrict us to six goals – with Hornets keepers Huerelho Gomes and Costel Pantilimon making some brilliant saves.
In truth, it could have been a cricket score.
Opta published the news after the 6-1 win on Sunday evening.
17 – Liverpool recorded more shots on target today than any other team has managed in a PL match since Opta records began (2003-04). Top.

Under Jurgen Klopp, anything seems possible. We’ve covered more ground than any Premier League side, scored more goals, had more possession and sit top of the table.
What an unbelievable start to the campaign. Now, we’ve got a two week break because of the internationals, in which we’re simply wishing for a clean bill of health upon the players’ return.
