Video Assistant Referee and the Referee decision to allow Liverpool's third goal to stand despite a clear offside view of the goal scorer Firmino have been heavily criticised.
Another master class performance from Jurgen Klopp's team who bounced back to winning ways against the newly promoted side Watford. It was a brilliant performance from the Reds with the like of Mane, Salah and Firmino tormenting Watford defense.
Liverpool started the game on high notes with high pressing counter attack from Salah's position. Sadio Mane scored the first goal of the Kathy in the first 10 minutes of the game through a brilliant assist from Salah.
It was a brilliant finish from the Senegalese international who scored his 100th English premier league goal in the 9th minutes of the game.
Robert Firmino goal in the 37th minutes of the game shows the inconsistency of the Video Assistant Referee and the Referee in taking offside decisions. Firmino's goal is exactly the same goal Yerri Mina scored against Manchester United in the week 7 English premier league that was cancelled for offside.
Firmino was clearly in an offside position before receiving the pass from Milner but the Video Assistant Referee and the Center Referee refused to cancel or review the goal.
Everton's goal against Manchester United should have stand if Firmino's was onside before scoring the goal.
Firmino scored his second goal of the match in the 52nd minutes of the game through a mistake from Watford's defense. The Brazilian International dedicated the goal to his wife who is currently pregnant.
Liverpool dominated the game after the third goal from Firmino before Salah scored another brilliant Solo goal. The Egyptian International remains one of the best player in this season English premier league after scoring his 7th goal of the season.
Watford could have scored a consolation goal towards the end of the game but Van Dijk's brilliant performance stopped their deadly attack.
Liverpool played one of their best match in this season English premier league and a brilliant 90+1 goal from Firmino gave Jurgen Klopp's boys a perfect 5-0 score line.
The Refs are back to the number position on the league table and Chelsea's result against Brentford will determine how long they will stay on the number position.
Do you think Firmino's first goal should have been cancelled?
